Yes! Keep the big iron traffic coming! Along with the other cool tech 
stuff, of course.

Just beginning to 'wake up' a little bit from a long 8-to-9 year hobby 
dormancy driven mostly from a busy engineering career and appreciate 
reading such activity. So once I retire in late 2023 or so, I'll be 
hungry for activity and may discuss some stuff on my PDP 11/73, PDP 
11/34A, couple of 11/23s, VAX11/730 (_lots_ of work needed, but still, 
Ye True Olde Iron), DG NOVA 1200, IBM 9370-75 (S/370 on silicon, but 
still big), smaller industrial machines: VMEbus & PC104 stuff, other fun 
stuff in addition to vintage radios -my true passion. Lurking for now... 
Just hope I have time for it all till I go 'blue screen' :-)

Keep at it, Dave S.!

Best regards,
