If it's for production, you have my sympathies. I finally retired my 10 year old VM host this year.

Discipulus is making a frankestein system using only 13 yo hardware..

well... in their defense, they're better than Air Traffic Control...

if you believe this site

you mean like banks who don't want to use modern computer hardware they have to replace every 10 years?
Loops    2014-10-24 11:39:39 UTC
There are still some biz that are hobbling along on old hardware. Prices for the old hardware are very low.
jellisii2    2014-10-24 11:39:29 UTC
Because L1 is so different/depricated?

some industrial places are still VAX driven. Emulators don't talk to existing hardware systems at powerstations for example
jellisii2    2014-10-24 11:36:30 UTC
THen what's the value of Vax hardware outside of collector-space.. unless the collector market for such things is particularly lucrative?
Loops    2014-10-24 11:32:48 UTC
There are several Vax emulators, from Cloud based to the Pi
jellisii2    2014-10-24 11:29:26 UTC
similar to what Transmeta used to do...
jellisii2    2014-10-24 11:28:56 UTC
I would hope someone would have already worked out all the parameters to emulate vax on x86...

Discipulus is cooling-warming-cooling inside a ced..
