- Apr 3, 2011Got home and I'm exhausted. Long weekend! However it's always a fun
and productive event for us, and this year was no different.
In addition to Bill Deg. and Justin's flea market booth yesterday, MARCH
had an indoor booth both days. We had two tables, displaying our Altair
and Pong, along with Andy's Apple //e and Bill's Grid laptop. Yesterday
was very busy from morning until the mid-afternoon. Later yesterday
afternoon and most of today were slower, but still good.
Lots of people expressed interest about the VCF East and many promised
to attend. As usual, a few people offered us hardware. One person
brought us another //e today, and another guy is giving us an Apple
III. Some other systems were also promised, and we'll see if people
come through ...... nothing especially wonderful, but still plenty
good. :) We also saw many friends-of-MARCH as usual .... Herb, Rebecca
M., all the ACGNJ / TCF people, some folks who've been to InfoAge and/or
My lecture today was well-attended. About 15 people were there.
Andy and I went to the TCF dinner last night, at which Andy received his
Hobbyist of the Year award. TCF management had asked me ahead of time
to say a few words on his behalf, so I did, and people seemed pleased
with that. Or maybe they just liked the dessert ... delicious chocolate
Oh, and yesterday morning there was a vendor suffering from road rage.
He wielded a chainsaw upon a closed gate that blocked his vehicle's
path. Two campus policemen ordered him to, shall we say, put down his
tool. He resisted and they drew their guns. * THAT * was interesting.
Today, someone tripped over a cable and allegedly broke an arm. Note to
self: make sure MARCH pays its upcoming insurance bill!
