I'm half way through - I needed to pause for breath!
(It's on YouTube too.)
The AGC is a remarkable machine, with some interesting quirks.

It certainly was an amazing machine. =D>

Haven't watched the talk, but have a couple of books on the topic that I browse every now and then.

There's some interesting talk, and more, on the "Apollo AGC DSKY Display Project, Pt.1" on Fran Blanche's blog. This one "University Laboratory Mega Haul!" is also interesting, if you're a collector (well, that's me included!). There's also lots of other Apollo related articles . . .
