Carnegie Mellon University Computer Club

The computer club at CMU offers the opportunity for interested students to tinker with unique hardware, promote open source development and advocacy, and hack on interesting programming projects, while offering a variety of useful services to the campus community.

The club also maintains a large active retrocomputing collection, including a number of classic DEC servers connected to the internet and a huge array of early home computers used to show graphics demos and host retro graming events.
