I assume you mean 370/145s/ Whatever happened to them? In 1979, they
would have been still usable machines.

While Connor's mainframe move is very impressive -try removing
something from a derelict ship. There is a certain beauty seeing an
800 pound box doing a slow ballet in three dimension using chain

Did anyone here watch the original livestream, anyway? The idea was to
try install Minecraft on the thing. Not enough horsepower! That, or
shitty Mojang code.
