Burroughs L9000 available to good home
Re: Burroughs L9000 Computer Accounting Machine
AMD to leave x86 behind
ref: also in play in the late 80s was the whole installed terminal emulation product base: by the mid-80s, there...
First of all, I would like to thank all the people in (and out of) this newsgroup who helped me fix my client's L9000 last October. We were able to keep it functioning until the software to replace it was completed and tested. It was working perfectly on the day we finally retired and unplugged it. The two ladies who had been using it for the last 30 years also retired about the same time, but expect to remain "plugged-in" and active for many more years. :-)
Now my client has asked me to find a good home for this machine, and I would appreciate your input. First choice would be for it to go to a computer museum, preferably one with a focus on machines from that era (early and mid 1970s). It gave good and faithful service from 1975 to 2005 and we think it deserves something better than to be sold for scrap.
If you can think of a museum or other insbreastution that would appreciate a Burroughs L9000, please let me know. Either de-mung the reply address or use the one below. I will also reply to any comments posted here.
What is written on the keys of an ICL Hand Card Punch 2541
real green card gives the card punch combination for every possible 256 hex value (and therefor the ebcdic subset). 12-2-9 for x'02' is burned in my mind since compiler & buttembler intermediate output...
I will have photos available on my client's web site in a few days, and will post the URL here. If it matters, the machine is in northeast Los Angeles, and I can make appointments for you to see it at any time.
