Re: [midatlanticretro] Re: Good day at the museum
- And if you want some real fun, add a small Western Electric #5 crossbar or Step By Step telephone switching system. It would be midatlantic related as it was developed at Bell Labs, well the #5 XB was anyway.

You're welcome any time, if you want to step into one of my mainframes.
- We got quite a lot accomplished today. Me, Matt, and Jeff B. all
arrived around 12:30. We began to palletize everything that's not on
wheels from our "storage corner" of building 9010-B (one of the famous
"H-buildings") .... any MARCHin who's seen that corner knows how densely
packed it was with big iron! We got about 90% of it done today, and we
moved all of that into our new museum section. We ran out of pallets,
but Chris and Brian arrived later (bringing with them an unassembled
Morrow S-100 kit for the club!), and then went out to hunt for more.
We'll get still more pallets by Tuesday, courtesy of Ft. Monmouth, and
then Matt and I will finish the job Wednesday. Thus, after Wednesday,
we'll have vacated that storage corner. Everything is now neatly
arranged with lots of space to walk and move pallets.
We didn't take pictures, but it struck as as AMAZING that all this stuff
had fit in that little corner! Spread out, it nearly takes up 2,000
Big thanks to all who helped today.
We'll probably take next weekend off for Labor Day.
