2677Re: [midatlanticretro] This Sunday @ InfoAge
- Mar 2, 2006Evan,
I can't come this Sunday, but I will be there on the 1st, and I can get
there early to help set up. I had planned to bring a "join the Regular US
Army / ENIAC ad for the exhibit, very cool. Contact me off list about
logistics if you need to coordinate. I should have the posters ready by
then too, for sale.
