I had a DEC PW433au for a while, I got Tru64 working on it. Absolutely
loved it, but I didn't have much space at home to play with it.

Ahhh, the good old days of DEC and Sun Microsystems. May they both RIP.

the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains us all
irrevocably.' Those words were uttered by Judge Aaron Satie as wisdom and
warning... The first time any man's freedom is trodden on we’re all
damaged." - Jean-Luc Picard, quoting Judge Aaron Satie, Star Trek: TNG
