I'm a computer history enthusiast. My collection is about 20 machines, a mix of microcomputers and a few minicomputers.

Drop me a note if you're in the area and have similar interests!

Live in Mableton/work in John's Creek. Enthusiast but not quite a hobbyist - yet.

Hi everyone,

I live in Johns Creek and I have started a users group for the greater Atlanta area! I hope you all will consider being a part. http://www.classiccomputing.com/CC/Meetings.html

Hey David, this is partly the reason I don't frequent another message board - there's already one right here!

Anyway, my original post was from almost seven years ago! Erik Klein appears to have merged the "Vintage - South" forum into this one, which seems to have been found by Mr. MindParadox.

Enough with the flabber here, we need to get this group together and talk about systems and current projects.

Hey there,

I just happened to stumble on this thread late last week, while prepping for my podcast (recorded this past Saturday - editing now).

I hope you and the others local to the greater Atlanta area will please sign up for the email discussion list and be a part of the physical get-togethers too! I hope to see the group really begin to start growing and prospering too. It's name is open for change to reflect the locale of the group, plus I don't care if I'm in charge or not, I just want to be a part. My intent is that the group evolve into a stand-alone, self-governing, non-profit, and educational organization.

The next planned meeting is on Saturday, April 2nd at 2pm. Location is still open, but my garage / workshop is available as a backup.

Best,

David Greelish, Computer Historian

I'm up for a get together, but I'd rather not sign up for Yahoo groups.

OK, no problem, you don't have to sign-up, you can just view the messages there - http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/HistoricalComputerSociety/

The group needs some sort of central messaging system though, so I had to go with something! MARCH also uses Yahoo, so I went with that.

Feel free to also email me directly if you ever needed to - david at classiccomputing.com

Hey everyone!

In late June I will be flying from Los Angeles to Atlanta, Georgia to produce and direct a short film, titled "Base Code", which centers around a computer that can change the world around it. I am in need of a functioning vintage computer as a principal prop. I was thinking either an Apple II or a Commodore PET (or superPET) - something with a green phosphor display.

If anyone is willing to help me out or point me in the right direction, I'd love to hear from you!

Additionally, if you have an interest in film making, you're more than welcome to come visit the set.


The official email for the film is BaseCode.film@gmail.com, or you can contact me via my personal email at rixonk@gmail.com.
