I recently got hands on what is supposed to be a Sun 4/260. INcluded are
about 150 QIC tapes or so.
I've gotten the fifty or so with labels scanned (labels on the tapes) so
far and will make up a list soon.
A lot of them have broken rubber bands, but the few that I could move by
hand moved w/o indicating that the tape media was bad. I'm assuming all
the rubber bands are shot.
Anyway the labels make them seem worthwhile.
Highlights are Ciprico Rimfire 3500 and Interphase drivers. There seems
to be one set of Sunbin 3.0 tapes in the pile. So far the other release
sets are incomplete. The second tape has 3 out of 5 tapes, but at least
includes the boot tape.
Also a driver for TTI vme bus (not sure what that is). AnDaTaco Optical
disk drivers. Perfect Byte EXB-8200 SCSI driver.
There are also compilers for C (Mercury), and for Fortran (Sun) . Also
Sorry for the bloated pdf. posted it for the impatient. You may have to
download it to view it at all, 54mb right now. I will transcribe a full
list of all of the tapes I have in ascii form in the next few days, but
wanted to get opinions on whether this already exists somewhere else.
