Just an amendment statement to PeD's experiences with all those iron pieces, and also to top them ! :-)

In the late 19sixties in Cologne, Germany, i had a frantic, light animally amusement with a sex addict blond female operator on a IBM360.

A greatl experiences !!! Just something you never forget.

360/370, 4331/4341, S/370, S3/90, i saw them come and gone.
But never had such fantastic moments again.

@PeD >>...champ bottle in a mainframe ???

Were used to store our bottles of red wine in the false floor to keep them in the right moderate temperature.

Regards, UmeySan

1st one I saw was an NCR 304 at Camp Pendleton, CA in 1965. They now have a tendency to be geographically separated from the programmers.

I have seen the mainframe for the first time in Aug, 2006 at Center for Development of Advanced Computing, Thiruvananthapuram, India.

It was an IBM S/390 machine. There was a mid range machine too... a H-50.

The S/390 was an awesome machine. It was a pleasure working with that. Now, I have moved from there and, hardly get any chance to see the mainframe.

I suggest everyone ... never miss a chance to look at the mainframe... atleast once... you'll feel the difference.

Saw two IBM 360's (a model 67, other unknown) ... love the dials, switches, blinking lights and keyboard! Almost got the front panel when one was being scrapped!

Saw an Amdahl 470 V6.

Saw an IBM 4341 & I thinks a 4381 ... nice book shelves!
