Mecipt - backview

a very kind gentleman alowed me to get a sense of proportion near the machine frame - the connections are very interesting and corodated
a precursor of computers - back when something like that occurred in Romania.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

MECIPT stands for "Machine for Electronics Computing Timisoara Polytechnic Institute, a research center at the Polytechnic Institute of Timisoara, which set up in 1961, MECIPT-1, the first electronic computer built in a university in Romania and CIFA- the second in country after the Institute of Atomic Physics Bucharest-Magurele.

Its design started in 1956 by a team led by Joseph Kaufmann, William and Basil Loewenfeld Baltac (and I. Munteanu, Herbert Hartmann, Dan Farcas, M. Fildan) and was completed in 1961.

the Art Museum in Timisoara is situated in a nice palace in Piata Unirii (that requested some 25 years to get all the repairs done).

There are a few permanent art collections and of course temporary ones.

Now  I was interested by the Juliul Podlipny exhibition and one reagrding  the evolution of communication (De la primele scrieri la multimedia).  While the communication I could photograph, the Podlipny and the  European art collection were off limits in spite of the payed fee for  taking pictures (and the unpleasant discussions regarding with some  floor curators who bothered me while taking the pictures - this time was  the second time, some years ago while I was using 350D plus 18-55  rectilinear, I tryed to take pictures but out of the 38 pics I had to  take due to the curator-nagging I missed some, so from the 11 rooms I  did shot nothing was usable :( )

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
