I love that second photo, how it makes the ORAC look so small and portable. As anyone with an orac knows, its still a bit of a lump when it comes to moving it by hand. :D

The Orac

I used to sit at that machine in that very spot in the 'Theatre of Advanced Technology'. You wouldn't believe the number of boxes and other crap we stored behind those curtains. The Orac was a brilliant machine. The version with the cassette for 'Audio Instruction' was just right for playing music. Notice the advanced calculator glued to the machine as well. Early computer stuff!
Oh the memories

Ahhh... Steve Crowther.

I'm sure I've got some photos in storage of you sat in that chair :!:

I'll dig them out one day and post them up here. Good to hear from you.
