I started on an ICL 1904S running George3, with 192kbits of Core Store and associated peripherals like tape reader, tape punch, card reader, card punch, line printers, 1/2" mag tape and EDS8/EDS60 disk packs. That was replaced by three VAX 11/780s and later complemented by a VAX 8530. A few MicroVaxes made a showing and there was also a PDP-11 somewhere in there running RSX11-M. After that it's all Unix of one kind or another intermingled with "personal computers" all the way from Acorn Atom, BBC Micro, Atari ST, Amiga, etc etc. I think we've had the lot at one time or another. Pretty much all Dell and Apple now.

I spent the last 20 years of my working life looking after unix systems, so that's part of the attraction! :)
