Thank you, Brian, for that post. A remarkable computer, and one whose existence has been kept secret all these years.

At the risk of making a shameless self-promoting plug, I may add that I mentioned this on the IT History Society Blog <http://ithistory.org/blog/>, which I co-edit with Sandra Mols. Just below is my entry on the recent passing of Herb Grosch, which news to my knowledge has not yet been reported on this listserv.
