Re: [midatlanticretro] Another zany night at the museum ...
- That's good to hear!
I contacted my car insurance agency and they will be giving me a call back soon.
Evan was nice enough to offer me a ride even though it was far out of his way. Thanks!
Other than those notions, I think it was a fairly good night at InfoAge.

Wild night? I didn't see any hard liquor or prostitutes!On Fri, Jul 31, 2009 at 1:13 AM, Evan Koblentz <evan@...> wrote:So, today I was again at InfoAge, because there was an initial planningfrom Sept. 1979: http://www.classicc mp.org/dunfield/ crom/z2h. jpg
meeting at 7pm for the Halloween event.
I got there an hour early to make more posters, clean up our rooms, etc.
..... I was hardly there for 10 minutes when Jeff F. showed up. LOL,
apparently he thought the NJ Hackers visit was tonight! Pure
coincidence that I happened to be there tonight.
Since I had a "free" helper, we did some more work on the minicomputers
exhibit. We put up some cubicle walls to cut the big room in half. We
designed the walls so that two middle panels can be hinged, allowing
"stealth" access into the other half of the room. I'll install the
hinges this weekend.
Then, just as the Halloween meeting was about to start at 7, Joe G.
called -- "Evan, any chance you're at the museum?" Ummmm yes I was.
Joe said he had a truckload of stuff for us -- "And it's not just more
Commodore 64s. Cromemco, blah blah blah" .... I stopped listening after
he said "Cromemco" .... SCORE !!!!! So I agreed to stay there until 9pm
when he planned to arrive, even if the Halloween meeting ended..
Bottom line: Joe scored us a Cromemco Z-2H, which is the third version
(1979) with an 11MB hard disk. Here's a Byte magazine advertisement
Joe also brought us an unidentifiable (at least to me) S-100 homebrewed
computer. I'll contact the person he got it from and try to get more
In addition, Joe says the guy also had a Heathkit H-8 and an IMSAI, both
of which he wants to sell. Again, I'll try to get more data, and
convince him to offer the computers to MARCHins before he posts on ebay
Lastly, Joe picked up a late-model Commodore PET for himself.
I would've posted this message two hours ago. Instead I got home very
late because I had to drive Jeff home. Apparently his compact car tried
to mate with Joe's SUV, which had stopped short when an animal crossed
the road. Big noise, some bent sheet metal and broken plastic, no
injuries other than to Jeff's ego. :-)
Just another wild "night at the museum"!!!
See you space cowboy...
