I figure this is worth a new message topic. Today, I finally
relocated 3 boxes of HP 80 series and 9825 items that got lost
in storage during a move nearly 10 years ago. I haven't even
gotten to the 85/87 stuff yet, but the 9825 box included a few
data cartridges - three with user data and then:
** 09825-90035 - 9825A System Test Cartridge **
** 09885-90035 - 9825A/B 9885 System Tape Cartridge **
Also included was a 98015-66501 disk alignment fixture for the
9885 drives and a couple of 98032-085 disk interface cables.
I'm pretty sure I got all this stuff from Larry Lehman when he
was shutting down Crisis Computers but at the time I was much
more interested in the 2100 boxes and just sort of scooped these
things up without paying much attention. Until I found them this
afternoon, I didn't even remember getting them.
The tapes have been in cool, dry storage since I got them -
I've never tried to use them and I certainly won't now!
Who is best qualified to attempt to read these tapes and
hopefully image the data on them? I'll pose the same question
directly to Al Kossow and Chuck Guzis but if the expertise is
here, please let me know.
