The Computermuseum München was invited as an exhibitor at the anniversary of the Computer Magazin Chip on 28.06. With the support of Cray-Cyber we have exhibited 12 computers in operation. It was a colorful mix from PET2001 to iPhone 1, the NeXT cube got a lot of attention, and a C64 invited to play. We thank you for the good organization and felt very comfortable with Chip and the Hacker School. We would be happy to come back and bring a terminal to a real mainframe.
The fuses and rails for the 230V distribution have arrived. We can now start with the 230V cabling in our small data center.
We are a little proud to bring a new site online in this short time. The site cray-cyber.org now has a working certificate and can be reached uniformly at cray-cyber.org. The information on the old page is not lost and to call up 90% under cray-cyber.org/old, here we will still improve something, especially with photos from past days.
The last few days have focused on preparations for the operation of the Cyber 960 and spatial planning.

We are very happy that our little Cray got so much attention. First place together with the arcade machines of “For Amusement Only” was the result of all the work.

I would like to thank our team and the organisers of the LRZ and VCFe.
The 19th annual “Vintage Computer Festival Europa” will take place on April 28th and 29th 2018. We exhibit our Cray! Come and see the machine live at the Leibnitz Rechenzentrum in Garching, just a bit North of Munich.

We had some problems to reactivate our Y-MP EL after the long time in stock. Thanks to our spare parts for the Cray, we were able to get the system up and running.
