This was emailed to me today, I find it quite fascinating. I can't wait to have a go on the CRAY Y-MP!!!

Cray-Cyber.org is a non-profit organization which provides access to
historic supercomputers for free over the internet.
Furthermore we reconstruct a museal computer room by obtaining vintage
(super-)computers, putting them up and making them operational.

Meanwhile we have obtained a new piece of hardware. Although it is no
mainframe or real supercomputer it is an interesting architecture which
we also want to preserve and which we also want to take into operation
and make available for public logins.

We are talking about an SGI Origin 2000 with 2 nodes and a total of 16
CPUs and 16 GB of main memory. We are running IRIX 6.5.22 with the
MIPSpro C and C++ compilers (the licenses were graciously donated by
SGI).
>From upcoming Saturday, this machine will be available every Saturday
from 12:00 - 18:00 CET.

We have a guest account where everybody is welcome to log in to and
play around on the machines and if interested we also issue personal
accounts.

We additionally already have a Cyber 960, a Cray Y-MP EL and a Control
Data 4680 up and running every Saturday, whereas the Cray is running
24x7, all machines are available for free logins over the internet,
donations are, however, welcome.

We hope you enjoy the new machine and appreciate feedback of every kind
to mail@cray-cyber.org
