Well, I was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt, that of
the zillion layered products that DEC was churning out in the
80's and early 90's that a guy might mistakenly think something
was on the tape that wasn't there because of the
language DEC or somebody else used on the TK50 tape label.

But he tells me I'm insulting his intelligence by suggesting that
there may have been some confusion based on his reading
of the tape label. He's made it perfectly clear he doesn't
want any advice on what was actually on the tape, he's made
up his mind, case closed, there was a VAX named Saul and 
OS/2 for the PDP-11 because he's been using the VAX since
the year before it shipped. What else can you or I do, Al?
