Yep, that was the place - I can't remember their name, I think they were the Autocad rep, and carried a few complementary lines like plotters.
The R1 was laying down on some stands, like a coffee table, plexi cover so you could set your drinks on it and see all the intricate wiring, tubes and construction.
One of the Texas Microsystems founders (and a Rice alum) got possession, and after a few years gave it back to Rice.
