Latest Rescue

I just returned from rescuing a ca 1980 Wang VS-90 from a factory in
Yorklyn, Delaware. The 90 is a fairly rare single processor version of
the big VS-100, and was replaced with the VS-85 at an early date because it
was not a very popular model, although a number were used by the US Govt
in the island territories, often, I was told, with huge battery banks
because the power supply was very undependable.

This VS-90 is attributed to commerce raider Victor Posner who at one point
owned 64 Wang mainframes. Rather a nice system.
