Re: [midatlanticretro] museum today
- They all run BASIC natively, except the MAC. Most are the same exact version of MS BASIC, or at least they all contain the same subset of core commands.

- Me, Jeff B., and Jeff J. worked on more inventorying today. After a
while we took a break from that and started re-organizing our fifth
museum exhibit room. We put aside some items to move into the
H-building. Next week, we'll do still more inventorying, and more
clearing in that exhibit room. We want to put an actual exhibit in
there (not just storage) in time for VCF. It will probably be the
"Computing in New Jersey" exhibit similar to what we had in there a
couple of years ago. We dismantled that exhibit post-VCF last time
because we had run out of storage space in the H-building. Now, we have
zounds more space at our disposal, so that's not a problem.
- In addition to testing the DECmate IIs, we had around 20 visitors today!
Adults, kids, and all very interested. New MARCHin Corey C. also
visited, and he joined IXR too. Jeff(s) B./J. also sorted more books.
So it was a very busy day. The best kind!
One of these months/years, we'll have this many visitors every weekend.
- Good to hear.
