Hello everyone,

The VCF Board and Steering Committee have decided to transfer our VAX 9000
out of our inventory to someone who has the ability to move 18 pallets and
6 rolling cabinets without charging us to get it out of the warehouse. We
don't have the funding for such a move. This decision was made primarily
because the machine is not functional, and we don't have the resources
(time, parts, power requirements) to make it operational or display in our
museum. Please be assured that it went to a very good home, to someone who
has the time, space, and money to display it properly. In addition to
providing a better home for this historical artifact, this move provided us
the added bonus of clearing a significant amount of space in our warehouse,
which gives us much needed breathing room to better organize our existing
artifacts, as well as be more prepared for any potential future rescues.
The triage process for computer rescues is never ending, so we need to
manage all of our resources to keep things under control, as well as
acknowledge when a particular artifact might have a better home elsewhere.
