Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Andy in New Jersey.
I don't consider myself an active "collector".
I just have a hard time throwing something away if it still works.
I suppose that makes me an "accumulator". :)
I'm hoping to bring one or two CP/M machines, specifically
a Sony SMC-70, and an Altos 580 with Televideo 955 terminal.
(As much as I'd love to bring my Teletype DMD-5620 "BLit" terminal,
it weighs a ton and I no longer have anything that will run "layers"
to be able to give a proper demo)
As for stuff to swap, I'll have to dig around.
Off the top of my head, I have available:
a Poqet PC handheld (PC-XT clamshell about the size of a VHS tape),
perhaps a Motorola Envoy and
a Sony PIC-1000 "Magic Link" with a number of accessories.
I've also got an Apple Mac SE/30 in a strange state of repair.
I'd like to find a working motherboard and bring it back to life.
In 84, my father moved to the promised land, aka Silicon Valley, and
while he did the executive thing with various hardware and software
companies, I got heavily involved in the BBS scene (QuickBBS, shortly,
and Remote Access for several years, also very active in FidoNet) andFidoNet! :) My first real email experience, I loved it. I remember getting a 'point' address of my fav BBS based in the UK, the Red Rose BBS (Lancashire).<snip>
all my advanced students learn vi (I'm a vi bigot and I do realize this
makes me a Bad Person). They all learn command line C followed byNot at all, I use vi daily. Personal preference. Nothing wrong with emacs either, although I prefer vi.<snip>
So, long story short, I'm thrilled to be here and thanks for putting up
A great story, thanks for sharing.Welcome aboard!- Steve--Steven Toth - Kernel Labs
