The UCC has gone through a lot of machines in its 30+ years of operation. We have tried to keep a record of most of the machines that have passed through our club. That way, whenever older members reminisce, with a tear in their eye, the freshers have some hope of knowing what they're talking about.

As things have become more and more prone to virtualisation, some of the newer entries on this list never took a physical form.
