Probably relevant to @Karl Auerbach at least.

@smellsofbikes@pluspora.com - Is there still a running one, perhaps at the converted MacDonalds at NASA Ames? (You know about the converted Micky-D where they collect old gear and try to recover lost data?) Anyway, I had the good fortune to work with one of the people who used that computer in real life.

The team Ken Shirriff works with restored one that never flew. Below is a link to his write up of getting a Bitcoin mining hash algorithm working on it just to say they did. They have several virtual ones so people can experiment with it on their own without an actual physical article. It's pretty impressive amount of computer archeology and restoration. http://www.righto.com/2019/07/bitcoin-mining-on-apollo-guidance.html
