- Jeff B. and I arrived at InfoAge at 10am today. We sorted about 1/3 of
the large collection that Bryan P. donated last week. Did that until
about 3pm, while Nick staffed the museum. Jeff and Nick both had to
leave, so I took museum duty for a couple of hours. Met a visitor (Ken)
who works for IBM Pughkeepsie -- no, he didn't know Sridhar. But he
might join our group.
Around 5pm Jeff J. was done helping IXR, so he and I continued sorting
Bryan's stuff. Did that until about 7, and then we went for dinner with
Dan W. ... came back and helped Dan with IXR stuff for another hour, and
then called it a day.
In total we got through more than half of Bryan's donation. Bryan is
mostly a Commodore guy, and as expected we found a HUGE assortment of
hardware, software, and books/manuals. No exaggeration: I lost track of
the C-64s around the 20 mark. Bryan also had an impressive collection of
obscure videogame consoles (but the only duplicates are common Atari 2600s.)
We also found a Commodore-controlled robotics kit, so we gave that to
IXR, and we'll give them a requisite C-64 too.
When we're done sorting all of this (probably in a few weeks) then we'll
have many things to sell.
Everyone should thank Bryan for this incredible donation!!
- Quiet at the museum today -- it's a holiday weekend and nice weather to be outdoors. We had about a half-dozen visitors with mild interest. They asked good questions. Probably closing early today.
