We are proud to be represented with the Computermuseum München in the 40th anniversary issue of Chip. Over 6 pages you can learn more about us and our Cyber 960. We would like to thank the Chip for making this possible. More of the magazine chip under www.chip.de, at chip-kiosk.de you can buy it.
A lot has happened in the last few weeks:
- For the operation of the CDC 960 almost all devices are installed in our computer room.
- The power distributor is rebuilt and equipped with new fuses, as well as the 400Hz cable from the generator and the 50Hz supply line within our room is laid and connected.
- The 400Hz generator has been successfully tested.
- Also from the Cray Y-MP EL there is something pleasing to report, we could read the urgently needed SCAN files from a defective original tape.
Here are some impressions:
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.

The Cray has safely arrived home.

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.
