Maybe you met Lorrie Lee?  He was at CSIRO and they had a Cyber 205 as well.
 He came up to Taiwan to help me install the 205 at the Central Weather

engineers.....

CSIRO is fairly big:-)

The bloke I met then worked for Facom, about '82, Fujitsu's Australian subsidiary.

I didn't work _for_ Facom, but I used their office and facilities, including their access to the CSIRO M190. There was an awful ruckus on one occasion. We (Facom+) booked some time overnight for dedicated access. My babysitters got bored and went home, left me to it. I was still there in the morning, at the master console, when CSIRO arrived.

Words were said, mostly not at me tho;-)

Never worked on the 6600.


Until I saw it, it was one of those mythological monsters. As I recall, it was right next to Gandalf.
