RICM

I spent a few hours yesterday photographing stuff at the Rhode Island Computer Museum. The particularly photogenic pieces were their EAI analog computer (which is a much more sophisticated version than the EAI model the RCS has), and a collection of early IBM mainframe front panels (1401, 360, 370). (Wish they had the full machines!) I also spent a lot of time examining their Cray machines (T3E, YMP-EL, J90, SV1) - photos soon.

I skipped over their DEC stuff (PDP-8s & PDP-11s mostly) because we have a lot of those at the RCS as well, but they do have a few DEC machines that I need to go back and spend some more time photographing.
