It looks like the link didn't copy/paste correctly.

Also, there was an article posted last Friday ... at-and-ac/

The Commodore Amiga was new to GRPS (Grand Rapids Michigan Public Schools) in the early 1980s and it has been working tirelessly ever since. GRPS Maintenance Supervisor Tim Hopkins said that the computer was purchased with money from an energy bond in the 1980s. It replaced a computer that was “about the size of a refrigerator.”

The computer is responsible for turning the heat and the air conditioners on and off for 19 school buildings.

A new, more current system would cost between $1.5 and 2 million. If voters pass a $175 million bond proposal in November, the computer is on the list of things to be replaced.
