Glad I kept my 3/280
It was in a VME 12-slot (I think) ComputerVision workstation. But I also
found a Sun 4/440 that had been upgraded from a 3/280 - so I have a real
Sun backplane with the 3/280 in it - gotta see if it'll fire up again.
I could shoot myself for not saving some of the Sun-2 machines I found.
All were units at Loral Fairchild in Syosset, NY. The Sun-4 I
administered until it was deprecated, but when I snooped around one of
their mothballed buildings, I found a slew of Sun-2's and that Sun-3.
They did a lot of CAD stuff on those CV machines.
Is the 3/50 that much different than a 3/280?
