I attended Queen Mary College from 86-89. They had just received several
dozen MG1s. I believe the WCW founders came from QMC.
By the final year a good 1/4 we're non-functional as the keyboards has
failed and by then WCW has gone bankrupt a second time (for good). I
remember one the programmers trying to encourage the more enterprising 3rd
year students to take on building a IBM keyboard adapter as their final
year project :-)
I'd love one for nostalgias sake but I live in the US now though shipping
to my mum's may be possible though no clue if they can handle 120v.
Lots of good memories. Eliot Miranda worked at QMC and had ported his
BrouHaHa smalltalk to the MG1. I remember using Occam (emulator), Lisp,
ML, Modula2 and C plus of course Smalltalk 80 all on the MG1.
