Here’s my IBM 360, running Cayenne-
It makes an excellent remote control,
as well as a whole-home heating system!
It needs a few peripherial devices, namely,
a streaming tape drive and a punch card reader,
and the electric bill is a tad bit high,
what with the air conditioning required,
and the general power requirements…
but it works like a champ!
After loading Cayenne via paper tape,
and booting the system using the streaming tape drive,
to turn the light on-
just press the button
24th column, 32 row…
To turn the light off,
just push the button
on the 64th column, 17th row.
Here’s the programming code-
Here is the Arithmetic Logic Unit-
to decode the Cayenne commands-
simply push a button to control a light!
It always amazes me how tiny a System 36 is-
“Nobody EVER got fired for buying an IBM!”
