Any Computer Geeks out there interested in a DECsystem 3100 running Dec Ultrix V4.1 (DEC Unix)?

Comes with a complete set of about 24 User Manuals.

If you're a collector of old Computer Systems then this will be a fine addition to your collection.

It's free! You must however collect it from our office in Alicetown, Lower Hutt.

If there are no takers by late next week it's off to the tip with the lot.

Have tried booting it and it won't boot so I think it will go straight to the tip ... sorry about that.

Sorry no Pictures. The 24 manuals taking up over 2 metres of shelf space have been dumped with the DECsystem 3100 soon to follow.

Have since discovered that the boot disk is corrupt but can't be bothered restoring it from backup, or reloading DEC Ultrix 4.1 from the installation CDs.

Pity that Digital's days are over!
