When Betelgeuse, the University of Manitoba's 47-year-old mainframe computer, breathed its last recently, the computer science department turned out in full to pay their last respects. There's a corking video of the university's director of Administrative Systems, Marvin Kocay, eulogizing over the mainframe's demise, after the jump.
