Would like to introduce me

 Glad to see another Canuck on the list. Actually there's
a considerable number of us on the list as well as some
lurkers. I've been acquiring old computers for some years
and was part of a failed endeavor to start a museum in
Toronto. A couple of years ago I retired to central
Manitoba with my considerable collection. I also have an
H/Z 89 needing repair and an H17 but unfortunately no
software or docs. From the sticker on the side I suspect
it was used by the successful canadian Mt. Everest
climb in 1982. Found it outside a church in central T.O.
When I do get to it on my to-do list I might call on you, as
well as the list's emminent Tony Duell of course.
 Possibly one day there might be a repository of stuff from
the considerable contributions made by canadians to
computer history. You might take a look at Poulsson's
Timeline of Computer History which is on the net and
a book I've yet to find, "Knights of the New Technology -
The Inside Story of Canada's Computer Elite, by David
Thomas, 1983.
