Brits buy 32k 16 bit computer on ebay, only 3750 Euros. Now raising funds to move it from Nuremburg to the UK. So far ...in 4 days 99 people have donated....
The Brits responded to an ad selling a Puma 2020 ("wir bieten Ihnen eine relativ seltene Anlage Puma Computer") and expected an employee rescued bit of kit and found a complete fully cabled IT department, tape still threaded, long abandoned and sealed away- they had purchased 2 IBM 360, and an IBM 370, and lots of heavy peripherals - even field manuals, and boxes of unused punch cards, and sealed tape reels.....
Puma remain near to Nurembourg in Herzogenaurach. Yes, that Puma.
Quite an adventure. Lots of mouth watering pics on their website https://ibms360.co.uk/
Now that is what I call retro computing.
