Say it now or withhold it forever, micro-channel, running only big endian, sorry, no ARC, if you don’t know what it is, obviously is not something for you, here good to go, ask and you will be given, at a reasonable price, unless you know who you are:

Mortality statistics

If you may be interested, some experimental mortality due to lousy electrical systems, combined with excessive humidity, numbers as manifested in the last decade (updated for sold:)

SGI MIPS64 dead 0 of 2
IBM 6000 PPC64 dead 0 of 1
HP/Apollo 9000 HPPA dead 0 of 3 (one alienated now)
Compaq/HP x86/x64 dead 7 of 9 (and two barely alive now)
DEC/Compaq Alpha dead 1 of 3 (one alienated now)
DEC VAX dead 0 of 2
Apple dead 6 of 9 (and two alienated)
Sun SPARC64 dead 3 of 11 (and two alienated now)
Cybertron x86/x64 dead 2 of 2

Eventually what we can all see, is that quality is important, “and” market favors junk over well built systems, now think about that at your next appropriation project.

If my heath gets better, down the line, may be looking into an rx6000 or rx2600 to run vms and hp-ux again, as it stands, I’m dropping everything except sparc, just don’t have the energy anymore.

Here the 3100 server and the XVT2000, not doing too much with those at our days, but are still nice hardware, most of it for me is now virtualized. If you have never seen one of those systems in your life time, here they are:

Mixing emacs with vi syntax (with viper) and enabling emacs backup files version control

leave a comment »

Here, just in case you don’t use VMS, versioning:

versions

versions

Minimal changes:

-download viper:

http://repo.or.cz/w/emacs.git/blob_plain/HEAD:/lisp/emulation/viper.el

-modify .emacs add:

;; version control
(setq version-control "t")

;; viper mode
(setq viper-mode t)
(require 'viper)

Have fun. 😉
