Non-Paged Pool sign (1/3)

A little geek humor for the day --
Instead of the usual afternoon coffee break, I walked out behind the office building and took these pictures.
Back in the late 1980s, one of Digital Equipment Corp's VAX/VMS developers planted this sign.
VMS has two types of kernel memory pools to allocate from -- paged which can be swapped out and non-paged which can not move. Clearly this pool is of the latter type. Is there any other kind?
