Hi I am testing and taking photos of my LOMAC David system.
This minicomputer worked in a City Hall in the 80s.
LOMAC (Logical Machines Corp) launched this model in 1980, I have all the documentation and programs, probably is needed clean the disk unit (8 inches)
This machine works in natural language.
I have the original printer too, but is needed clean all its parts.
I will write all progress and photos.

This is interesting; I've never heard of it before, and Google isn't telling me anything. What did its "natural language" software look like? Did it run any kind of operating system underneath, or was the "natural language" thing the whole system?

This system maintained a dialog between the machine and the operator with predetermined words at high level (English, Spanish, etc.) is not necessary use basic or cobol or any other language. Tomorrow Ill to scanning information about what is the form to comunicate with it. You can find information about brother systems like ADAM, TINA and ABEL.
