I am looking for former personnel of
Bermuda Business Machines Ltd., Agents of NCR.

I used to work there from 1976 to 1980. I lived in Bermuda until 1987.
I was trained on all 605-systems. I worked first as field-engineer and later I developed software in NCR-IMOS-Cobol (NCR 8250) for supermarkets in conjunction with 726/255 systems.

I am also looking for former  colleagues who stayed at C-TEC Dayton in the summer of 1974 (May - August) for NCR 399 peripherals-training. I had my 399 training in 1973 at ITEC Giessen/Germany, where I also had my NCR 446 training in 1971 (July - August). It would be nice to hear from somebody from the good old times. Smiley Smiley

Regards to all, and especially to Aleksandrs for building and maintaining this site.

Hello Wally (I hope you are still active on these forums),

I worked at BBM from 1984 to the end of 1986, primarily on the Criterion Mainframes.  There is a group on Facebook called "I used to work in Bermuda" and you can catch up with a couple of ex-BBMers there as well.

Regards,
"Big" Ed.

Hi "Big" Ed,
I know the group "I worked in Bermuda". But I have stopped my activities in Facebook about 2 years ago.
BTW there is another group in Facebook, it's called "BBM - NCR Bermuda" and was started by Jim Ferguson. It is a closed group.
https://www.facebook.com/groups/122732011269639/

A further group is "Bermuda Friends from the 70's", which is a public group.
https://www.facebook.com/groups/59822659496/

And the group "Old Bermuda: Our Island, Our History", a closed group, might be of interest too.

After working for BBM I was in charge for EDP at "The MarketPlace" in Bermuda.
At the time you worked for BBM, I was part-owner of "Advanced Software", in those days located in the Armoury Building on Reid Street.

Some of the people, I knew at BBM and in Bermuda in general, have passed away (RIP).

Regards Wally.

Thanx for the links.  Other than Paul Wood, I don't recall any of the others in the links.

Having tuned 63 this year, my memories are fading fast as it has been 30+ years.

I truly enjoyed my time in BDA and have no regrets.

All the best for the coming Christmas season!

Cheers,
Ed

My brain is almost 10 years older and there are a few gaps too.
Once in a while I'm in contact with Paul by e-mail.
Season's greetings and best wishes for the New Year for you too! Smiley Smiley
Cheers, Wally.
