Very cool.  Takes me back when I used to do that ;-)  As CMU of us all
system programmers had to do shifts as operators.   The thinking was that
if we had do the crappy job too, we would fix things and not let the bugs
build.  FWIW:  I can not tell which model 360 it is.  I think its a 65 or
67.  It's not a 91 nor a 40 or 50.

BTW the 'bell' on the console was a fire alarm bell inside of the main CPU
cab.  Also what those pics do not reveal is how noisy it was in the machine
rooms.  The fans were constantly going.
