All of GRPS’ Heating and AC is Controlled by a 30-Year-Old Computer
The Grand Rapids Public School system is getting national attention from Reddit today, after a user found video of June 2015 WOOD-TV report.
The story, which is not new to those of us around Grand Rapids, tells about the 30-year-old Commodore PC that is controlling the heat and air conditioning for the entire school district.
Hey if it works, why fix it? Right?
At some point this blew up on Reddit, gathering a TON of pretty funny comments.
Here’s what Reddit is saying:
“That reporter is really taking a bite out of this story. I’m surprised there isn’t a black and white slo mo shot of that guy looking shady out of context.”
“Replace it with a new HP tomorrow and it’ll crash in a week.”
“They need to upgrade to something newer. Like an Amiga 500.”
Hey GR, we’re internet famous!
