This might be a great proposal (a VAX Emulation system) for someone to
present to the Seattle School board. Seems that the talent is here in
this group, and someone who is a professional could do a nice job.
Certainly the cost to replace the system could be horrendous, and school
boards rarely have a lot of spare cash...can someone push VAX into the
21st century and beyond?
