But this is Evan's show. Alex should to talk to Evan about what Alex brings. If Alex's H8 is not working - I don't care to argue further with Evan in public about a "working only" rule, again it's Evan's exhibit. My apologies to Alex for mis-directing him, and to my colleagues for being annoyed about the terms of Evan's exhibit. But this is not about an old man being rude, it's about a philosophical difference about vintage computing and exhibition - which is not the the adjenda at TCF this weekend.
- OH MAN, I'd have to explain a back story but I would have LOVED to see that thing! You didn't bring it did you?

But they use 12-inch wide (that's twelve inches) perforated "computer" paper. I don't have time to spend $50 to and wait three days to get paper. Does anyone planning to attend TCF have some paper to bring? I'd like a ribbon too but hard to believe anyone attending has a good model 43 ribbon, I may have to ink up a dry ribbon.
