I just finished building a frame for some resurrected LED panels from a decommissioned super computer.  The computer was a CM-5 by Thinking Machines.  It has been used at the College of Oceanography and Atmospheric Science at Oregon State for a fairly long while.  A few weeks ago, its time came, and we surplussed it.  I was able to get the light panels and built a frame for them at my house.  This post describes a little about the process and includes some trivia about the CM-5 and the panels themselves.The CM-5 in name alone probably doesn’t resonate with many people, but hopefully you can recognize it in the background of this photo from Jurassic Park…
