Tom, Mike, and Gavin all have versions of MTS running on two different S/370 emulators on a PC or under Mac OSX.  We are working to see if we can get MTS made available to anyone who is interested under some sort of free license.  Only time will tell, but I am cautiously optimistic.

One of the things we hope to do is get permission to include object module only versions of at least some of the proprietary program products that were available on MTS, but that weren't part of the official distributions. They would be MTS only versions for what are now quite obsolete programs, so we (Gav, Mike, Tom, and I) are hoping that folks will be willing to give permission.

As far as Pascal/JB goes I have no problem with it being used on any of the MTS simulators.  I do not have a copy of it anymore.  Well, I've got some 20 year old MTS tapes that are probably not readable.  I would like the following license fee:  one beer served in an MTS Workshop mug the next time we are in Ann Arbor.

I can happily agree to pay the license fee for Pascal/JB.  It will need to be a group effort, however, because I don't have any mugs.  But I'm fairly sure that one of Gavin, SteveB, or Mike will have some and can probably be talked into letting us use them.  If not, then I know for a fact that George has some in Bristol (the photo in the MTS Wikipedia article are of George's mugs), but you'd need to accept payment in the UK.

Mugs 'R Us !!  I've got Ann Arbor '79, and the UBC one that declares itself to be a "Beer Mug" .. at least.

I'll have to check to see if I still have one lone mug stashed in my work office -- in a fit of "Are you ever going to use these things?" not too long ago, the ones in our kitchen cabinets were displaced.  There's a very slight possibility that one of them made it up to the Ontario cabin

And I do, one from the 1986 RPI workshop.  So I think we've got you covered, Jim.

I think that I might have an MTS mug or two so maybe I'll have to bring my own.


As of January 2012 this debt had not been paid. -Jeff
