The computer at Lawerence Livermore Lab museum was the first computer I 
ever used.  Went there on a school field trip. Had to be '78. They had 
Teletype 43's setup in the museum you could play football on. There was 
a long line to play. Got to run about ten plays before you were kicked 
off and had to go get back in line to play again. All that paper wasted 
seems crazy now. They must have gone through a box an hour.

Part of the tour was seeing the machines behind glass in the basement.  
I can't remember anything now. Anyone know what they were and what that 
football game was ?
