They are one of the first IBM mainframes I ever worked on, along with the Sys370s. Toroidal core storage and hydraulic power for the heads on the huge 100 meg disks. Huge in data size that is!

I hated the yellow systems. Yes, you could get IBM 360s in 5 colours, but why yellow I will never know? It was a bright canary yellow and did not help a hangover one little bit! Programmes entered by JCL punch card stacks, great stuff!

Did you know about the birthday Chscag? Brings back some memories I should think??

I have discovered that wine gets better with age. The older I get the more I like it !
