OSIsoft hosts E-Waste recycling days at it's San Leandro headquarters on a periodic basis. It turns out to be a good way to clear dusty bits and bobs out of the offices, storage areas, and server rooms. Sometimes though, it's a sad event - Consider this box someone found -



These are tapes for layered product software and operating systems for OpenVMS machines. Most of these tapes dated back to the early and late 1990's. TK50's, TK-70s. Remember those? Also in the box are copies of distribution media for OSIsoft products on OpenVMS platform. PI2 server. PINet. Instrument System Interfaces on OpenVMS. A little sad to send all this to the recycler. Still, good to de-clutter one of our server rooms.
