    From =?UTF-8?Q?Jan-Erik_S=C3=B6derholm?=@21:1/5 to All on Thu Jan 25 14:15:08 2024
    Hi.
    Now, when probably not doing any more work with VMS,
    I'm cleaning out my office. One one shelf I found some
    book related to VMS. Some was ditched at once, like ref
    guides for DEC- and Oracle-Fortran from the 80s/90s...

    But what about these below?
    Anyone interested can contact me directly.
    Also interested in messages saying "throw them away!". :-)

    Shipping world-wide (trackable) will be
    1 Kg: $16 USD.
    2 Kg: $22 USD.

    Weights below are rouned up to 1 or 2 Kg.
    For multiple books, just ask and I'll check.

    - Rdb. Hobbs, Smith, England. Third edition.
    Fairly modern (-99 timeframe) Rdb 7/8.
    1 Kg.

    - WASD. OSU, Apache on VMS.
    Alan Winston.
    1 Kg.

    - Writing Real Programs in DCL.
    Anagnostopoulos, Hoffman. Second edition.
    1 Kg.

    Then these from the series "The minimum you need to know..."
    Roland Huges
    - ... about Logic to Work in IT. 1 Kg.
    - ... about Service Oriented Arhitecture. 1 Kg.
    - ... to be an OpenVMS Application Programmer. 2 Kg.


    Regards,
    Jan-Erik.

    Harsh - every DEC publication is sacred, good homes, libraries, and
    computer museums, should be found for all of them!

    To paraphrase a Boromir LoTR meme - "One does not simply retire from a
    lifetime of VMS dedication."

    Is there a computer museum in Sweden that would be interested ?

    Many computer museums try to gather documentation, not just hardware.

    It's not lack of interest, or high shipping cost - but I already own the
    two books I would have applied for otherwise :-)

    Right... They will probably just go back into the paper recycling bag.

    No time to investigate further.

    That's a shame. There are various online sellers of used books that
    take donations, e.g.

    https://www.betterworldbooks.com

    Maybe there's something like that in your part of the world where you
    can dump them in a donation bin in the parking lot of a local
    supermarket or something?

    That certainly exists in the UK, or at least it did several years ago
    during my last clear out.
