I'll take "Computers in Sci-Fi Movies" for 600
Speaking of 14" platters, is that one on David's bedroom door in "War Games"? Or, was it a large phonograph record?
Also, why does the video display in "Alien" make sounds like a printer?
14" single platter disks and diskpacks: the IBM 1130 used them all.
I have a few platters but lost the one with the "rings of Saturn" from
a long term head crash.

>>> Looks like we're finally getting our card sorter tomorrow morning. Oneof the Infoage volunteers, Mike Golub, has a truck with a lift gate. We're
just waiting for final confirmation from the ebay seller that he's home
I forgot to take pictures but I'll probably be back at the museum tomorrow.
I think it's missing some internal parts, so I doubt it can run again. Also
the previous owner * painted * it from IBM gray to light brown. Said he
used it at home as a bar!!! Oy ....
