There are many retro computing enthusiast groups around (depending where you live - none here around Dublin, it seems) but I'm yet to see one dedicated to midrange or mainframe systems.

It is a shame. Many challenges we find today happen to have been solved in the 60s. Then in the 70s, then in the 80s...

Exactly – everyone does know their retro consoles and home computers, I can't find anyone who would have some interest in the systems you mentioned. Bummers.

Worst - even platforms that are still in use, such as IBM zSeries and iSeries are very poorly represented in tutorial space.

I'd love me some IBM i hands on day.

Is there a Hercules for iSeries?
