Here's my contribution to this topic:


Our national broadcasting company visited my unofficial museum and filmed my computer collection for the documentary "Lada, Laika, Marx ja mä". You can see there the 1800 running a simple program. More photos of the 1800 is in my blog.

Thanks everyone. I saw the 360 black and chrome knobs and black tipped switches and started
searching '360' things, hence the question.
