through almost 15,000 messages to find the list of potential exhibits.
Currently, we have five rooms. (Actually four, but one is double-sized
and we divided it in two.)
Four of the rooms are already in use: Computing at Camp Evans;
Minicomputers; Homebrew-era computers; Microcomputers.
The fifth room is currently storage. We'll move its contents into one
of the large "H-buildings" after the Halloween event is cleared out.
Plan for the fifth room is three small exhibits. 1., Artifact(s) of the
month; 2., Dimitri Grabbe shrine (he was a major benefactor for us); 3.,
Members' exhibit. So two of these three small exhibits will change on a
In another year (or two), we'll move the whole museum into one of the
H-buildings. When that happens we'll have MASSIVE space. We'll be able
to build, for example, a dozen exhibits. Lots of ideas -- storage, I/O,
networking, business software, computer gaming, graphics, programming
languages, analog computing, etc., etc. -- but for the next year-ish we
