Thanks Museum Volunteers
The collection looks great, and all of the new stuff was moved and stored
in the H building very nicely. There are even some labels. I
took pictures and will post asap. Nice rows, clean, not too much
junk. Lots of D|G|I|T|A|L stuff, wow. The pdp 8/e looks great
and there are both RK05 drives and a papertape reader that can be used
for I/O. (assuming there is a matching controller).
We all owe a debt of thanks to the guys who have been coming to
InfoAge to clean up and re-organize the collection, A huge
I could really see the difference from last year. So much more
organized and most of the items are located in a relatively clean
space. It's great too that we can access almost anything in our
collection without having to move a bunch of stuff to get at it. I
think the only thing left is the front basement storage room.
I understand we're looking for pallets. I have a few pallets at my
office if anyone wants to grab them next time you're in the Wilmington
I wish I could get up there more often.
I found and removed the loose screw in the Altair, and tested memory,
etc. It's a CUTTER system. If you hook up to a terminal
call me, I have notes on how to set the terminal switches.
The SWTPC 6800 with terminal and tape controller is was tested - OK.
IBM PC - OK
Built a Mark 8 computer from parts I found lying around, what luck.
I had to cut out early from the InfoAge meeting, around 7:30.
