    Sheesh, I would put my hand up, but shudder to think of the postage.
    Just off hand may I suggest the " Power House Museum ", Ultimo.
    Please don't trash it as I'm sure that there are many who would be interested.
    Kindest Regards, " The Druid ".

    Nothing better that seeing one of these beasts in operation. Such a pity some things disappear!!!

    I was 4 and I do remember it. A bunch of neighbors gathered, in the evening, and a lot of kids, to see it go by. This was in Seattle. I remember that the people who launched it were the "bad guys" and that this was bad news.

    Where are you Humax...?
    I used to work on these in the 70's. Brings a tear to my eye to think of it being dumped.
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy...

    AWA Engineering Division at North Ryde in the 70's, complete with the massive tape drives.
    Then we (AWA) developed the VTE Series of video terminals.
    Australia was once a leader in technology.
