Saturday museum wrap-up
- Long day, very productive!
Mark, Bill Drom., and myself -- with help of InfoAge's two laborers and a new InfoAge volunteer named Lou -- started around 11-ish and moved six desks into room #3 for the "consumer micro" exhibit. Then we moved five 42-inch-wide gray cubicle dividers for the Camp Evans poster exhibit.
After that Jeff F. arrived; "Lou and the Laborers" went to do other InfoAge tasks so it was just we four MARCHins. Important task: we ate lunch. Good sandwiches from the local Italian deli.
After lunch, Bill Drom. and Jeff moved the original micro exhibit, minus the Altair and Osborne, into room 3 -- so each computer now has its own desk and each will soon have a full complement of peripherals, books, etc. -- best of all this room has lots of open space.
Meanwhile, Mark and I went to Home Depot to get some supplies for the Camp Evans exhibit. BD and Jeff were done when we got back; all six micros were plugged in and working again.
Mark had to leave for his 3-hour ride home. So BD, Jeff, and I began assembling the cubicle dividers. We ran into some technical glitches and a problem with a door lock. But by that time it was almost 6pm and time for the InfoAge volunteer party.
Steve G. began fixing the room #1 door lock after the party; he's going to finish tomorrow. Also tomorrow Jeff is coming back around noon-ish. Our museum will be closed as we try to finish the Camp Evans poster exhibit. Then we'll clean up some things and dive into room #2 (which we skipped in the past for a variety of InfoAge reasons). This will be our Homebrew-era exhibit.
Overall, a great day! Six or seven hours of real work and we got a lot done.
BIG THANKS to Mark, Bill Drom., and Jeff F. And of course our best-friend-of-MARCH, Steve G.
I'm looking forward to continuing the work tomorrow.
During the week I will make posters for the new micro exhibit, etc.
- I would take it, but I'm not going to go all the way to long island for it.----- Original Message -----From: Christian LiendoSent: Wednesday, July 15, 2009 1:39 PMSubject: [midatlanticretro] C64 $1
