Cool! Thanks Jim.
Ethan's and your response have exact the same hh:mm time stamp!
(at least on my computer).
For my 11/750 I will need a copy of some OpenVMS version first, because I
promised to wipe the disks, otherwise I could only get the system without
the disks. I wanted the cab with the three RA81's too, and the HSC70,
although I am not sure if the HSC70 will ever be useful as the L0009 and
internal cabling is not in the 11/750.
And I have read that you need besides the L0009 more stuff ... need to find
out what the HSC70 requires, and maybe I come to the conclusion that the
HSC70 is only taking up space ... I am not planning to build a cluster
(don't know anything about that stuff either), but ... never say never :-)
I posted a request for Zork (PDP-11) on Amazon a year ago, but
never had any response. So, your link to the VMS version is great!

there is a VMS version of Adventure on the net:

This has an executable copy of ZORK
There are plenty of others - Google soon finds them! (try a search for VMS
ADVENTURE, or VMS GAME)
I don't know if it is possible to run the RT11 version under emulation mode
on the 11/750, someone else may.
