Mukden Carbine - Sold pending funds

Since it appears that the old posts are not going to be carried over to this new board, I have lost the contact info for the members i had been talking with about possibly purchasing this carbine from me. I will repost the pics and if you had shown interest, please send me a PM. Thanks

I sent you an email Chris. Had lots of trouble getting logged in and other issues. (The site now says I am under 13 and need parental permission. I guess they tapped into my maturity level! I guess I had 3 kids awful early then)

Me too. I just put my own email address in and it seemed to like that.

And after finally getting in a few minutes ago, I see that my last visit was 12-31-1969. Wondered what all those cobwebs were doing on my monitor.

The only computers that didn't take up a large room back then were flying to the moon!
Just think of the deals we could have got back then. :rolleyes:

Fred, mine has the same date. The question is just what were you doing at 11:00 pm back then?

Ray, if I remember correctly, we were running an IBM 360, and I was punching out cards to run some pretty elementary structures programs. NASTRAN, ANSYS, etc., were light years away. As a matter of fact I was still hung up on Space Odyssey 2001, one of the best movies of all times. T14, on that New Years Eve at that time of my life it aint gonna take no rocket scientist to figure out what I was doin.

Fred, I'm with you on 2001, I still find my self thinking about that one. Didn't IBM and Burroughs have the computer market sewed up back then? My computer class in high school taught us how to punch a card and read a flow chart.

1969

In December 1969, I was opening my "batman" costume and new red tricycle and watching Captain Kangaroo every morning before Kindergarten.

Yep, Raym, IBM had the whole market, and the 360 seems to have had the whole floor in our building. We had a couple Burroughs mechanical adding machines (monsters). I was the local wise guy. Forever inputting a number, dividing by "0" and walking off, listening to that sucker grind away. Then we stepped up to Wang desk calculators. I immediately figured out how to lock it up. "69 factoral" would keep the Wang running and grinding for a whole weekend til it figured out it couldn't do the number and shut down with flashing lights. And what was the hot project? F100 engines for the F15 and later F16. Hot stuff for 1969. All these replies make me feel old.

Thats funny Fred, We had those Wang calculators on the desks in my astronomy class in college and they were always locked up on some process! Never could get them to do anything you wanted to do.

This is just a picture to see how big a picture can get. Rear nacelle from a zeppelin.
