Nice! The Computer History Museum got a DDP-24 computer several years
ago. The donor contacted me first but it was a bit out of my league and
more properly belonged at the Museum. This is because it was used to
perform simulations for the Apollo missions. After it was retired, it was
donated to a community college in Florida. The donor ended up with it
when the college decided they no longer wanted it. He trucked it over
from Florida when he moved to California. It remained in his garage for
years until he was about to be foreclosed on. He called me and I then
got in touch with the CHM. We acted quick and were able to get a truck
down to Santa Barbara to pick it up. It now rests safely at the Museum.
