    Default VCF's new toy: VAX 9440

    The VCF museum took delivery of a VAX 9440 today.

    It arrived in TWO 28-foot trailers. Here's our forklift driver beginning to unload the first truck:

    Here's a teaser picture of the main cabinet:

    The full system is 30-40 feet long when it's all set up! It is in pristine condition and was in service until a couple of months ago.

    Gives new meaning to VAX's being called "Mini"-computers

    I was confused when I first heard that it's a VAX and so big! But DEC marketed this as a supercomputer and later as a mainframe. It is definitely not a minicomputer!
