I definitely have CTS300 on RL02, I managed to take all our packs when the
company I worked for got rid of me in 2001. I also took a couple of boxes
full of TK50s and CONDISTs on CD. Pretty sure there's a DIBOL-11 tape in
there somewhere but it may be DIBOL-32. Got the manuals and reference cards

I also kept the RL02 drive, MicroVAX II I used to develop on and a PDP 11/73
with RLV12 controller.

Does it all still work though, press button A or B now!
