Not to worry. I'm still here. Just been very busy at work. As you see, it's pretty dead here. Spending more time over at VCF and really not doing much with my own vintage stuff.

Would be tempted to run it natively on an X86 machine. Anywhere on the web that describes the last version to run on x86 (not x64) hardware? Last version I can find is Solaris 10. Would love to fin ...

Thought I remember seeing some when I worked for Siemens (which was a former TI facility), but that was now over 13 years ago and the memories starts fading when you're over 60 years old...

Hmmm, that site looks very similar to minus zero degrees (which I know to be legit). I'd be somewhat cautious about any downloads from there...

After draining all potential voltage sources (large capacitors), check to make sure primaries and secondaries of all the transformers are not open. Wouldn't hurt to use a (clean) paintbrush and compr ...
