Thanks for the heads up Scott, but it's too late :-)
I promised the drives (in fact the whole R215F, allthough I disassembled it)
to a teacher up in the north of The Netherlands. He is restoring a VAX6000 as
sort of a study project with some students. Perhaps I could have made a few $,
but my guess is that not many people in the USA would buy a drive that must be
shipped across the pond. Too much risk of damage, and the shipping costs are
not low either. You know the weight of an RF72!
So, perhaps I lost a few $$, but OTOH, I have a good feeling about it now
by just giving it away for a good cause :-)
I am still thinking of putting an 11/34A together with an RX01 and RL02 in
an H960 rack and try to sell that, but it would go to somebody nearby, as
I am not going to crate it! (Yes, I really need to recover some space, and
I have three 11/34A's of which two have not yet been powered up. If I will
sell one, it will be in working condition). Sorry to drift off topic :-)
