Call around to clients/shops in your area. You can probably get a tube and a
brick for a lunch.

Hmmm... I get the feeling that is the direction I should be going also.

It has been quite some time since I have been an operator (when I 
actually used a dumb terminal). Is this what I should be looking at
getting?

Looks like it is going to run me about $145.  Those things must be 
gaining speed as collectors items!  I seem to remember a plethora of

I don't use the HMC, Aaron, I use a $50 dumb tube and a twinax brick.  
I've never had any problems.
