Congratulations on your new 11/730, from another 11/730 owner!

Mine also came with some documentation that's not scanned in the wild yet. I've been meaning to scan it, but that's on my very long list of things that I may or may not ever get around to doing.

I haven't booted my machine up yet, because it hasn't been able to read any of its console tapes. My next step will be to plug in tu58em in place of the internal tape drive to see if I can boot it from a boot tape image I found online. I hope that I'll be able to recover the contents of some of my physical boot tapes somehow, because they cover different versions than what I've seen online.
