The Anonymous Widower

The Price of an Artemis 1000 System in 1984

In going through my papers for possibly the last time, I found this invoice for an Artemis system. Or at least for the hardware required.

A Metier Invoice for an Artemis System

Effectively, my recollection is that this was about the time we sold the company to Lockheed and it was for old-times sake more than anything.  I have a feeling I actually bought my old development mchine from the attic.  It’s still in my shed now and I suspect it is the only one left!

  1. Well if it is in your shed and probably the only one left, give it to a museum, dont get rid of it

  2. The first accounting machine I ever sold is in the Birmingham Museum of technology. I was enraged to see it there, it should be out and working. The same goes for you James

  3. Are you still in New Zealand. There was a rumour that you’re coming back. I’m going back to central London, as you can see from this blog.
