24509Museum report -- good stuff
- Feb 26, 2012Today was busy and productive, just like last week. We had several groups of visitors spread out during the day, including 10 Cub Scouts, several families, and a few serious engineers.
We also were given several more boxes of books today -- nice ones, including some Macintosh manuals and books that we put on display by our original system. Also, we got a boxed copy of AppleWorks.
Jeff J. went to Home Depot for us and bought lights that we hung from the ceiling of our H-building storage area. We got 100 feet of lights that use 10 bulbs at 100W each. It just plugs in to the wall. This setup wasn't cheap -- it set MARCH back around $160 -- shhh, don't tell Justin the club treasurer. ;) (Hi Justin!) But the lights make it much easier, more pleasant, and safer to work in our storage area. We zip-tied the light string to the rafters so we can take it with us to other areas in the future.
Neil C. brought us some small VAXen -- 3200, 2000, etc., plus some Apple //c gear and a couple of small Sun boxes.
The Jeff(s) and I organized a few more random boxes/pallets. Also we finally found the elusive second box of our Morrow S-100 kit! We made some space in the homebrew computing exhibit and laid out the major components for display (see attached pictures, including one of the manual showing a layout, which we generally duplicated.) I'll make a new poster for it, and we'll rope it off so people do not pick up the parts (some of them have sharp edges that can extract blood ... guess I how found out ... ouch!)
That's all for now.
