Hi! My server doesn't show anything in this group but spam for the past
couple of years. Is there anyone here?

Yes! I was a beta site for Hermes way, way back when I was a kernel
engineer for Sequent Computers. There really aren't many substantial
resources left describing Hermes, and I still remember it as a very
interesting language for creating reliably compartmented programs.

If somebody has bits, I'll be happy to host them.

Regards,
Andy Valencia

Thanks for responding. :-) Are you a long-time user? Do you know if
there is anyone else still using the group?

That's a very nice offer; I hope someone takes you up on it.

I was a Beta site, got it running on our Symmetry and tried out various
constructs. Some of the wrap/unwrap stuff wasn't working yet, and I
recall that the mailing list kind of petered out. I think they were
already ramping down when I started working with it.

I had a 6250 tape which no longer exists; my hope was that one of the
original team might still monitor here and be able to scare up the
last bits before their project moved on.
