The Update Computer Club was founded in 1983 as a student club at Uppsala University. It aims at connecting people who are interested in all kinds of computer related topics such as hardware, software, running modern or historic computers, computer architechtures, operating systems, or programming. Over the years the club has collected a large amount of historic hardware that documents the history of computing in Sweden. The collection includes a DECSYSTEM-2060, a Cray Y-MP EL, a Symbolics 3650, and a (mostly) working PDP-12. With the upcoming move of the Uppsala University IT department to a new building Update is at risk of losing its rooms, and therefore its collection. We need your help to preserve this bit of computing history!
