20647Re: [midatlanticretro] IBM 360 and older computers - any still running?
- Apr 3, 2011
I am going to snoop around some of the old DuPont
buildings in downtown Wilmington. They may have
some old remnants there. I will ask "hi I'd like
to take a look at the old computer down in the
basement, can you take me to it?"
Perhaps a good place to start would be with universities, government institutions or businesses where one has studied or worked in the past. I will, for example, contact my Alma Mater and see what they are running these days.
When I worked in downtown wilmington there were mainframes in the basement of certain DuPont buildings. These are huge fortesses, there is also an AT&T building, etc. Lots of places were mainframes could be hiding.
I work downtown, it's not a big deal to ask questions during my work day.
