Found while scouring Usenet for something totally unrelated:

"Well, you never know what someone might be doing with old, but usable,
hardware. I have heard that there is a major bank in Great Britain
that keeps an IBM 360 running because its 1401 emulator emulates a 704
(as did the original 1401) for a program whose Autocoder source was
lost long ago. Also, don't underestimate the geek factor. Was
AlphaLISP ever ported to Alpha Micro's 680x0 line?
"Transported to a surreal landscape, a young girl kills the first woman
she meets and then teams up with three complete strangers to kill
again." -- TV listing for "The Wizard of Oz" in a Marin County newspaper,"
