    Default How do you do?

    After reading some of the historical accounts of the development of Unix, I gained an interest in DEC minicomputers. I did dabble somewhat with PDP-11 assembly, but got confounded when it came to the system stuff; what the text had and what I got (errors) left me stumped.

    While reading IBM's Early Computers, I spotted an IBM Multiprise 3000 was up for auction by the state. Unable to attend, it was sold to a scrap dealer. Happily, the state property people were willing to play middleman, and now I own an IBM mainframe.

    Good effort.
