The same appears to be true over here. I know of very few big iron
collectors here. I thought I'd here about more working at CHM, but if
they're out there, they don't have any contacts with the Museum either.
I keep hoping someone has some private stash of mainframe software, but it
hasn't surfaced yet.

It was interesting to talk to Doron while he was here about the relationship
between the Science Museum and CCS.
