VCF East is April 15-17. That's just 2 months away! Who's going? Do we have a plan? Last year DEC was well represented. This year could be even better! I am starting to put some things together. Hopefully we can connect to the HECnet backbone. My site will provide both Multinet and bridge links into HECnet as necessary.

A list member has it, or has said so in the past anyway, but at
this point I'm thinking maybe they don't want to give it out?
I've always wanted to try it too. My understanding is that it's
from pre-Ethernet days so it requires a DMR-11 or DMC-11 (or

I haven't gone to shop-pdp.kent.edu in eons and don't know if it's
still around (the domain name still exists but at least right now
I can ping it but not connect any other way), but I was very
impressed with it.
I just checked mail headers and noted thongs down. Restarted bridge and mim. I'm pretty much offline until Saturday, so I'll catch up and respond to mails then.

Some months ago I asked for help regarding one of my Vaxstation 4000,
whose power supply appeared to be dead. I have finally found the time
(and the mood) to take apart the PS from the machine and open it to take
a look. I have got to vandalize it a little bit, since one of the screws
was completely stuck in place... nothing that a creative use of a dremel
tool can' fix ;)
What I have found is one of the two big fuses near the mains connection
is blown. This _should_ be good news, since all what I have to do is to
find a compatible fuse. But I wonder what will I find when I replace it.
There is nothing obviously burnt in the PS. The big capacitors look good
(even shiny, once I've blown off the dust), and there is no funny smell
So, my next step will be to replace the thing and see if it blows up again.
Just a question for the repair savvy... is it safe to power up the PS
outside of the vaxstation?
I'll tell you how the thing evolves :)
