Well, I just left Grand Rapids about 3 hours ago. Had I known, I would have saluted the old Miggy!

Interesting! To encourage people to click on the link, here's a brief quote:
Quote:
A 30-year-old computer that has run day and night for decades is what controls the heat and air conditioning at 19 Grand Rapids Public Schools.

The Commodore Amiga was new to GRPS in the early 1980s and it has been working tirelessly ever since.
...
A Kentwood High School student programmed it when it was installed in the 1980s. Whenever the district has a problem with it, they go back to the original programmer who still lives in the area.
...
A new, more current system would cost between $1.5 and 2 million.
