¬°Bienvenidos al Wiki del LCM!

Below you will find information on the Computers available over the Internet from the LCM through ssh.

To request a login, visit https://livingcomputers.org/Computer-Collection/Online-Systems/Request-A-Login.aspx
Note that you may need to disable your ad blocker to be able to submit this form.

Once you have a login, you may connect to the host using:

ssh host@tty.livingcomputers.org

Where host is the name of the host you wish to connect to (refer to the list below). This will connect you across a telnet bridge to the host. You will then be prompted to log in with the account you have been granted.

Alternatively you can also connect to our menu system to springboard to all public hosts using:

CDC

Model: 6500
OS: NOS 1.3
Host: cdc6500

The Living Computer Museum is home to the world's only operating CDC 65001). Originally built in 1967 then retired to storage in 1989, restoration on the LCM's CDC 6500 began in 20132). Principle engineer Bruce Sherry continues the ongoing work of restoration along with others, managing the vast array of unique hardware and software required to bring the CDC 6500 experience to a whole new generation.

Using the CDC 6500 is, for many, a new and daunting experience. A survival guide has been created that covers the basics of the operating system, editors, and programming environments available on the LCM's CDC 6500.
