Re: Keep old drives

I worked with VAXen and FORTRAN at CERN. I was wondering why they would have to use real VAX hardware, and not an emulator. I guess reading the tapes explains it.

I have a TK50 tape somewhere, which has my PhD thesis on it. Anyone got a drive which can read it? The document itself is in a variant of TeX called Scitex (not Latex)
