It took me a very long time to get thru the 3,360,000 results currently shown by Google for "Amstrad CPC"  :o

Meanwhile in the real world....................I include a second search term to narrow down the response - Amstrad CPC + laboratory, Amstrad CPC + pdf, Amstrad CPC + mapping etc. Sometimes I also apply a specific time frame.

Cheers,

Peter

Onto strange uses for amstrad cpcs.  Being in Australia we used yo have a cool tv show in the 90s called beyond 2000. One of the episodes was about France and their large number of nuclear reactors which had dedicates trains that would go to and fro between some of them and the computer systems that controled parts of the system...  Which were Amstrad CPC 6128s.  I wonder if that episode is available online anywhere?

There may have been more than cpc 6128. In fact they didnt even mention cpcs. They are in plain sight in the video. They could be setup as terminals.
