Was looking up "9 inch tape" on youtube.. and found this description for their video.

Tape processing on an LSI-11 (PDP-11/03) using a Qualstar Streaming Tape Subsystem. Tape transport has a slightly bent capstan -- drive is very noisy and subject to severe tape jitter. Reading works only 75% of the time.

HOW TO HOOK THIS DRIVE UP TO A PC:

Below that, was a URL that was dead.

Went off to the Internet Wayback Machine, and recovered the link.

http://web.archive.org/web/20060312200118/http://www.qualstar.com/pan009.pdf

removed the file in the destination of the URL and also got this.

http://web.archive.org/web/19971222153250/http://qualstar.com/

::::

For some reason, I've never had luck hot-linking to the Internet Wayback Machine directly, to recover lost hotlinks, but I instead saved the URL for a Google search, to the same service.

http://www.google.com/#hl=en&sugexp=elsfph&xhr=t&q=wayback+machine&cp=4&qe=d2F5Yg&pf=p&sclient=psy&safe=off&site=&source=hp&aq=0p&aqi=&aql=f&oq=wayb&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&fp=f17ae772ca1ea813&biw=1366&bih=457

Ugly url, but it works.
