CSIRO is fairly big:-)

The bloke I met then worked for Facom, about '82, Fujitsu's Australian 

I didn't work _for_ Facom, but I used their office and facilities, 
including their access to the CSIRO M190. There was an awful ruckus on 
one occasion. We (Facom+) booked some time overnight for dedicated 
access. My babysitters got bored and went home, left me to it. I was 
still there in the morning, at the master console, when CSIRO arrived.

Words were said, mostly not at me tho;-)

Until I saw it, it was one of those mythological monsters. As I recall, 
it was right next to Gandalf.
