    I really don't understand why they don't upgrade their IT infrastructure, Look at this!

    I was thinking two tin cans and a string would be an upgrade at this point.

    This looks like the IT department (before it was ever called "IT" and was just the "computer center") at my undergraduate university. They had an IBM 7294 with punch card readers. The real powerhouse computer (an IBM 360) was located down the road outside Washington, D.C. We communicated with that computer with the help of a teletype machine.:rolleyes:
