In reply to dgs:

No, only in South Australia the biggest grain exporting state in Australia. The porta are Thevanard and Port Lincoln on Eyre Peninsula and Port Pirie, Wallaroo, Ardrossan and Port Adelaide the main ones. So more than 4! The chat was that only SA had a really reliable operation when first computerised as the networked Acorns would pick each other up if any one went down, so the grain loading would continue un-interupted so I was told. In the eastern states if the computer went down it all came to a shuddering halt!

I am only getting the hang of this messaging on drobe. My apologies as the urls in my message above were dead. I repeat them here in the hope thay will come alive! (Is there anywhere on Drobe where this is explicitly explained?

See [link] (old site but still interesting) though seemingly untouched since I left in 2001, I know they are still actively using about 3 RiscPCs and 1 A7000 in classrooms.
