That's alot of junior bacon cheeseburgers. :-)
Did that other movie thing pan out, or is this the same one?
- Other movie thing never transpired, this is a new thing.

Well, not quite famous. I was contacted yesterday by an independent TV
production company. They're doing a commercial for the Bank of New York and
they wanted to rent some old computers from us as props.
I and Fred met the set designer at InfoAge today and she looked through our
collections. She called me back just now and they decided to use our
HP-2623A (see attachment) which is an engineering workstation but I guess
they decided it's got a certain Jetsons look-and-feel that they like. They
will also use some punch cards.
They're paying us $300. That's the equivalent of gaining 15 club
memberships or about 68% of our insurance quote. Not bad! And hopefully
this can lead to some more work in the future. It's also a good idea that
InfoAge overall can advertise the individual clubs or even the campus as
being available to rent for film purposes. So if someone is making a movie
with an old Army base scene, then there's the campus and the antique
military vehicle club, plus InfoAge has got the diving museum folks, the
radio club, etc. ... why not monetize it all, right?
They will pick it up Monday afternoon. I or Fred will supervise the
I'll try to find out exactly when the commercial will air.
