27637RE: [midatlanticretro] FREE PDP-11/23

Any pictures? VT100?
I've been reluctant to do this for a while, but I'm giving away my PDP-11. I just never use it! In fact, it's been so long since I've last fired it up, that the contacts on the floppy controller have become dirty and it no longer communicates with the floppy drives. I have no doubt it can be cleaned, and put back into service, as it worked fine earlier.
However, both MFM hard drives have died, but that's not unexpected. Otherwise, it's a good strong system, built in an aftermarket case (I forget the brand). The processor and power supply are all strong and working well. It's a good system, built for me by a member of the Vintage Computer Forum. The system deserves a better home with someone who will use it. I'm away from home 5 or 6 days a week, and just don't have the time or interest anymore. I also have a 4 foot or so DEC rack and power supply to go with it, that with some rigging, could accommodate the computer, and whatever other drives and stuff you wanted.
I live in Shawnee on Delaware, PA 18356. Any interest, let me know either by replying (I get the daily digest) or by shooting me an e-mail at markvi82@... - e-mails would be preferred.
