I am doing a little re-arranging of stuff in my basement, and I have to make a decision as to what do with my PDP11/23 system.
I have a 6.5' rack cabinet which holds the PDP11/23 box, a, I think, 5MB drive, and some other items. This stuff was purchased some 35 years ago, when I was ambitious, and I wanted to set up a "real" server, in my basement. Back thirty five years ago the system was in working condition, so I am making an assumption that if turn the system on, everything should still be working,
At that time I also purchased, P-sys OS, which came on the hard drive. The hard drive, for the curious. is about the size of a large microwave oven, and it weighs about 75 pounds, I think. Since there are a lot of old-timers here, my question, has anybody worked with P-sys OS? I do have the printed documentation for the OS, but I do not recall having a chance to work with the OS, back then. I wonder if it would be worth while to spend some time with the OS? Anybody have some thoughts about this.
