Jeff J. and I drove down together. Rich C. visited and brought us a dual 8" iCom drive system for the IMSAI display along with some magazines and software (he'll send a separate email about his visit soon.) We put the drive system immediately on display.
Soon after Rich left, Ian arrived to pick up some things and to help around the warehouse -- but first we took a lunch break.
After lunch, we had a surprise visit from Mouse! Then we all moved some things around to create a little more space.
Ian and Mouse left; Jeff B. finished up some sorting/organizing; and Jeff J. and I went to pick up a few boxes of books etc. from a woman who visited recently.
As I write this, Jeff J. and I are heading back to the museum with the small rescue. We'll be there for another 30-60 minutes and then we will call it a day.

>> Today first thing I did was, I vacuumed all the museum rooms and as a courtesy the hallway carpet in front of all the MARCH rooms.Thanks. It badly needed that.
>> Next *another* unscheduled cub scout troop came with 30 to 40 people including parents. They and the last group from a few weeks ago seem to be fulfilling a science history requirement for the cub scouts. I guess this will be a common thing at the museum for groups of cub scouts. I did my best to give a tour, but they were looking for the speed tour and I had to stop many times to remind the kids not to touch anythingHopefully we reached a few of them.
>> I didn't have time to clean the Bendix.I will work on it next time.
>> The Commodore PET doesn't seem to be working again.The screen usually works but sometimes it is flaky.
>> The Apple // monitor make high pitched noiseWe have several of those monitors, so we can just swap one out.
>> I wonder if anyone can fix the Wang computer?I think it just has a loose card or two. Might take a stab at that myself during the next workshop.
