Much Learned Discussion

David Blakely's very useful vehicle

Oh ! And a cabinet
Comments Several machines needed to be removed from Rollie's property, back to the barn, due to settlement of his estate coming up in the next few months:

1) KL10 front end - originally from John Newman. Rollie was working on replacing the missing DecTape logic boards at the time of his death.
2) Various rack mount hard drives (in temporary storage)
3) Pyramid computer (in temporary storage) - originally from David Blackely
4) McDonnel Douglas machine (in temporary storage) - originally from Edith Cowan

A very good turn out of volunteers !
Many thanks to everyone for transporting all the miscellaneous items in their vehicles and for their valiant efforts.
