I worked at EDP in Sheffield and then Milton Keynes from about 1986 to 1989. I worked for Alan Lees who is mentioned in another post. I repaired all the various ADDS systems supplied and eventually supervised the repair center eventually...
I loved programming in PICK. Nothing else like it. Taught me about data structures and objects long before that was even a thing, it just made sense.

I was the Technical Director of the Spain reseller for ADDS Computers since 1985 to 1992. In summer of 1986 I meet with an Engineer from EDP U.K called Alan Lees at Lisboa (Portugal) for the M2500 training course.This M2500 system was an excellent computer, very noble and powerful. I can say that M2500 was the best system for Pick O.S. in 80´s decade at Spain. Around 1990 were substituted by NCR/AT$T Tower 200,400 y 600 series with the name Mentor 6000 series. Same hardware but different O.S. Unix for Tower an Pick for mentor.
M2500 brings back good memories, unfortunately disappeared, however I keep an old M6000 that I´m sure that will startup. Regards.

ADDS Mentor was a joy to work with $ Pick OS was revised and was fast. The late, great Eugene Nathan Johnson was a fan. Prime took the fun away too soon thereafter, but the Mentor was always the sweet one. Standing next to the "fridge" with terminal on top was a happy working height. I remember this was a good looking box in black matte. I''d love to have one to play with again.

In 1980, I was the principle software engineer at ADDS responsible for the porting project that became MENTOR - the prototypes were called Epsilon, I have 1 of 6 that were made with all the original engineering documents and source code (hasn''t seen power for about 20 years) - the Mentor was soon numbered the 4000 as smaller and larger configurations were offered (3000, 5000, 6000). I had left for Altos before they did the later Mentors. Sorry to hear Neil''s has died (and what a way to go).

Just found this site again, forgot I had sent these pictures in a while ago!
Well the M2000 has finally gone to heaven. About a year ago there was a significant fire in the garage where it lived (it didnt cause it though!) and everything including the garage was gutted.
It had stopped working a while beforehand, but I couldnt permit myself to throw it out because it couldnt have been fixed.
Glad to see its still alive on here though.
Thanks, and keep up the good work!
