13464Re: [midatlanticretro] MARCH makin' money
- Jul 16, 2009Thanks, Bill.
What's nice is, this plan doesn't require us to spend any money or stock
any inventory! We're making the posters anyhow. A lot of times our
visitors gravitate to whatever specific machine they used 20, 30, 40
years ago. We can let them go home with the memories and the poster.
Not even any copyright issues -- we just need to take some good pictures
of our own artifacts (except where we can get decent pictures from
Wikimedia Commons, etc.)
Speaking of which, I am the world's * worst * photographer. Anyone here
have a GOOD digital camera and really knows how to use it?
