The Last CDC Cyber 180/960 Mainframes, a 39-year era comes to an end
The colleagues in Vandenberg (USA) have shut down their 960 forever in June 2021.
I really hope we get our 960 back in service. At the moment it doesn’t look bad, our small data center doesn’t have a suitable power connection. However, the new building is almost finished, only small things are missing.
Paul Allen died very suddenly seven days ago.
That was very close to me, although I never met Him personally. I followed his projects like the “living computers museum + labs” with interest and respect.
Our member Gerard van der Grinten was personally on site in Seattle to help with the start-up and repair of the CDC 6500.
The world has lost a great man, he has moved so much.
My condolences to Paul Allen’s family and friends.
