Submission + - University holds jazz funeral for its mainframe

BDPrime writes: "Server Specs has a story about The University of Manitoba holding a New Orleans-style jazz funeral for its mainframe. The funeral included a full procession route on campus, "Amazing Grace" being played on the trumpet, and employees smashing a pinata made to look like a cartoon-y mainframe. Is the mainframe dead? Maybe not everywhere, but at The University of Manitoba it certainly is."
