A long digital time ago

Honeywell H200 Series
 

A long digital time ago, in the late 60’s and early 70’s, I started my career as an service engineer instructor for then Honeywell Information Systems. At that time Honeywell IS was competing with the leading computer mainframe manufacturers IBM and ICL.

Unfortunately, there is very little left of Honeywell’s mainframe range, but luckily their bottom of the range H200 System starred in the Billion Dollar Brain Movie, the relevant excepts I have included below. Plus a few silly additions of my own!

All is not completely lost because there is a project to create a replica as far as possible using original Honeywell components.
