Invitation to fourth Open Day at November 26th, 2005 invites to Open Day 2005

The Vintage Computing Center of (Stäblistraße 10b, 81477 München, Germany) invites to the fourth tour day on Saturday, November 26th, 2005 from 12:00am to 6:00pm.

The main task of the Vintage Computing Center ist to restore and run historical mainframes, mostly of the field of scientific computing. Visitors have the unique possibility to play with punchcard equipment, ancient tape technologies and other former IT techniques. The collections core is a Control Data Cyber 960 including peripheral components (punchcard reader, chainprinter, disk and tape drives) in a fully operational shape. New entries in the collection past last Open Day in November 2004 are a Control Data 830 (up and running), a SGI Origin 2000 and a NEX SX-5 (both in restauration process). The collection enfolds distinct models out of several computer families including peripherals of Control Data Inc., Cray Inc. and NEC Corporation.

At the Open Day lots of the machines are up and running and visitors are invited for guided tours throughout the collection. Many peripheral devices are operational and will be demonstrated as well. Intrigued visitors will have several possibilities to actively take part in the historic IT world. There is no entrance fee, but donations won't be declined.
