Are you referring to the slick little ML11-A (I think it was an -A when
I installed it at NY Telephone on
West Street, next to the World Trade Center...
I seem to remember it being used as an RS04 (or similar) fixed head disk
replacement for swap -- but
it could've been used for temp.
Funny seeing a fault light on a Massbus controller'd box of mostly MK11
IIRC it had write-lock as well.
Neat idea and I wish someone would come up with a really large SSD with
a writelock for archival storage
of my stuff. No head crashes and if I could disable the possibility of
Digital had it then. Don't you wish you could buy it now!
