And I’m working on recovering software for the Electrologica EL-X8 and EL-X1 systems; the former was a particularly good ALGOL system and the latter the host for the first ever ALGOL compiler.

We’ve had some programming discussions here, mainly about ALGOL:!forum/retro-b5500

Our attention has shifted recently though to the Burroughs B6700 and discussion about B5500 has gone a little quiet, but there is still much to explore and re-discover (see the thread about the GTL ALGOL compiler for example - trapped somewhere on a CUBE tape).
