LAST CHANCE! FREE “VINTAGE” VAX/VMS MANUALS!

‘Trying one last time…

I have EIGHT sanitized egg and apple boxes filled with [39] VMS v4 (orange) and [31] VMS v5 (gray) manuals for which I'd like to find a good home with someone who will preserve for posterity.

See the spreadsheet tabs - "v4-orange" and "v5-gray" to see the lists of goodies. vIncludes a few Rdb manuals. I cannot add an attachment, so I'll paste below and hope that it isn't too clunky.

Shipping costs to anywhere would be prohibitive. I live in Northeastern PA. Most old VMS nerds, I believe, are in the New England and Mid-Atlantic regions. If you're willing to take ALL of these manuals and give them a good home, I can work with you, perhaps even driving a reasonable distance to a location somewhere between NE PA and where you live for "a drop." In that case, the diner lunch is on you! You’ll need a decent-sized vehicle – SUV, pickup, or minivan.

I’ll keep these until the end of JULY 2021. If I don’t get a commitment from somebody to take by then, to the dumpster they’ll reluctantly go.

‘Hope to hear from you!

Shipping costs to anywhere would be prohibitive.
I suspect you are right, but note that these should be eligible for media mail
rates from the USPS, which are down to about $0.60/pound in boxes
up to 70 pounds.

That is much less than other shipping methods.
