We * could * do this, and yes, I (and Sellam on the west coast) have thought of this before. But I'm not sure if the idea is practical because of time (to do anything useful) vs effort vs liability.
Fred wouldn't object at all. Just not for the cottage (LOL are you crazy?); this is a telecom building kind of thing.
Instead, I'd rather see someone like BIll / Dan / Bob G. etc. give a talk on "Vintage computer analysis and repair for beginners" ... Or, "Mr Bill's Advice for Evaluating Your Vintage Computer: Step 1, Touch the Red Wire and Hope You Don't Fry."
Seriously, the talk could be general tips, maybe a few things specific to computers that would be common for newb collectors, ultra-basics of S-100, how to buy your first minicomputer, etc.
Bill is already busy with his exhibit and the music thing, so I doubt he wants more work.
