The Retro-Computing Society
of Rhode Island, Inc.

The Retro-Computing Society of Rhode Island, Inc. exists to further the preservation of historic computers and to increase the awareness of the history of computers and their development. One of our primary goals is to restore historical systems to operational condition. We currently function as a users' group for those with an interest in vintage computer hardware systems and software.



Mike posts about our efforts to restore the Cray on his blog.


Received a donation of a Cray J90 supercomputer from Brown University.

Open House

We hold an open house on the third Saturday of every month.

The next open house will be on August 16th . We will be working on the RS/6000 NSFnet router.


We powered up the Cray J90 and continued to work on running diags from the IOS.


Worked on the VAX cluster.
