    From my readings of the sources for the VAX version, I can say that I
    don't think they were always that serious...some of the comments were
    extremely funny!

  9. Re: VMS License Plates

    I run VMS, do you ?


    I am not affraid of clusters

    I perform well in a cluster.

    I like it when many play with my peripherals at the same time.


    Does your OS have good documentation ?


    My GUI developped before I hit puberty.

    (The above is important since so many think that VMS is old character
    cell only).


    I was doing email before Windows was born.


    Would Windows survive Palmer and Capellas ? VMS did.

    Fish mentioned in error messages?

    Wombats mentioned in HELP? (I know - that's DTR, not VMS!)

    Yup. I started doing email in March 1983, with VMS


    Great statement, folks. Many are too long for a license plate.
    And many need to word "VMS" (or "OpenVMS") to make perfect sense
    (but then, they are even longer)...

    Keep shouting

    Just out of curiosity, when did VMS first have the ability to send
