Last Weekend I visited the first Vintage Computer Festival Europe in Munich. It was a pretty cool event with lots of interesting old hardware. My favourites were:

  • A Tektronix Terminal with a storage vektor display
  • A mechanical calculation machine with motor. Division really rocks. Make sure you place it on a stable table :-)
  • A self-built tube computer - the MUNIAC. The creator tried to build a "modern" tube-computer. It is not yet completed but is already able to count...

It is some kind of frustrating, that my knowledge of old computers is really limited. At least I can now claim, that I wrote a program on the very first Commodore PET 2001 model - Yeah, right:

20 GOTO 10

Definitely cool!
