As of a couple weeks ago it's MIA. Must have been some millennial hipster who doesn't understand (stereotypes do permeate international borders sometimes) who grabbed it for the break room. Who knows. They could have at least entertained us with a shot of the hands reaching to remove the machine.

TRCM R.I.P.?

Well... I guess this is why.

Since the summer of 2016, the coffee maker is on permanent loan to the Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum (de) in Paderborn. (Crappypedia) http://www.hnf.de/en/permanent-exhibition/exhibition-areas/everything-goes-digital/the-world-at-your-fingertips-history-of-the-internet.html

Oh but wait... what's this then?

The 30-year old coffee machine that just won't die. I wish my Mr. Coffee was like that.

That old stuff is often hard to kill! At least we don't need a dedicate X application to see if they have coffee, nowadays :)

I wonder if xcoffee would compile and run on a modern Linux with X11R6. Obviously it wouldn't have anything to retrieve unless you managed to hack it to retrieve from a different camera.

I'm sure you could come up with a spoofed source to feed it :)
