The program running the heating and air conditioning systems was written by a Kentwood High School student who still makes programming adjustments whenever there is a problem.
GPRS’ Commodore Amiga is, however, finally beginning to show its age. Unfortunately, upgrading to a more modernized system is projected to cost between $1.5 and 2 million.

What the hell ?
Just give the students some Raspberry PIs and let them write a new version of the software.
