Wow...the more I think about it...the more I think that's a really,
really good price.
If anyone wants to score this pile, and wants to split the take (and
the $$) and get part of it to me, I'm game. I can spare a few hundred
bucks. I'm swimming in MicroVAX-IIs and I have four PDP-11/44s, but
would love any of the other stuff. (and those two would be more
sought-after for most people anyway)

get some basement organization done), but I sure hope it ends up getting
claimed by someone good. If you're looking for RL02 drives, though, you
might also see if Ian has any left; he was selling them for a really
nice price at the last workshop.
Not to dissuade you from picking up this stuff, of course, because it's
also otherwise a really good haul.

So yeah I have a Unix bias, but not without some VMS experience.
