We only had nine visitors to the computer museum today, but they were
all good visitors -- adults who were genuinely interested, stayed for a
while, and asked good questions.
One person visited a couple of weeks ago and came back today to ask
questions about his recently purchased ZX-81. I pointed him to our list
After closing, Steve and I drove to the Princeton area to visit a
friend-of-MARCH, Rebecca Mercuri. She gave us two modern electronic
voting machines and a Lowry Genius G160 electronic organ. Why? Because
these products all use Z-80 chips! Our plan is to keep one of the
voting machines (for our future exhibit on modern use of vintage
computing technology), give the other to FUBAR Labs (NJ hackerspace,
a.k.a. "Fair Use Building And Research"), and decide later what to do
with the organ. Amazingly, this all fit into Steve's minivan.
