Introduction to the VAX


I wrote An Introduction to the VAX (PDF here) while I was enrolled in the graduate CS program at Western Michigan University. However, I was only interested in PCs, or as they were then called, 'micro computers". The program was geared solely to mainframe so I only took language courses: BASIC, Pascal, FORTRAN (which I loved), and assembler. I started the Academic Computer Center newsletter and editied it for a year and a half—I think.
