Title: Bermuda Business Machines Ltd., Agents of NCR. Former personnel.
Post by: wally on July 29, 2009, 10:52:01 am
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. :) :)

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

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/ (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/ (https://www.facebook.com/groups/59822659496/)

And the group "Old Bermuda: Our Island, Our History", a closed group, might be of interest too.
https://www.facebook.com/groups/OldBermuda/ (https://www.facebook.com/groups/OldBermuda/)

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! :) :)
Cheers, Wally.
