The support administrator in Michigan still has memories about the day when they bought the Commodore Amiga, the production of which was stopped in the 90’s. But the computer is still operable and working in Michigan to control the temperature of the schools in the area.
The machine is taking a watch after the temperature, pumps, fans, boilers and is capable of turning on and off these devices on demand.
The officials of Michigan hope to replace the outdated machine as soon as the community makes a decision to give $175 million for the renovation. One of the Michigan officials, Tim Hopkins, the local supervisor, said that he can’t even let in the thought that the defense system or finance institutions were working on such an old equipment. Another fact for the replacement is the fact that each year it becomes harder to find details for the computer and if the system fails it will be a real catastrophe for the schools.
But as the computer has been serving humans without serious errors in a non-stop mode for more than 30 years, it has been decided not to say farewell to the loyal machinery, but to keep it and maybe use somewhere else.
