Come one, come all, to the Seattle Retro-Computing Society's monthly
meeting, on Saturday, September 17th, 2011!

Do you do any of the following with old computers near Seattle?

+ Use, collect, and/or restore them
+ Play games on them
+ Write programs for them
+ Develop new hardware for them
+ Help other people do any of the above

If your answer was "yes," as I expect it will be if you're reading this
near Seattle, then the SRCS is for you! We exist so you can show off
your awesome stuff, bounce ideas off of fellow enthusiasts, and be
inspired by one another's achievements, plans and aspirations.

No idea is too big or too small, and we're not picky about what flavor
of vintage machine you prefer! Come on down and tell us about it!

The meetings are graciously hosted by the Living Computer Museum, a
relatively new organization which is building a computer museum in
Seattle's SODO neighborhood. There will be refreshments, a Buy-Sell-
Free-Trade table, and enough table space & power to set up anything you
may want to show off!

For further details, please see our newly improved web page at
http://www.seattleretrocomputing.com/ and our mailing list at
http://groups.google.com/group/seattle-retrocomp . Hope to see you
there!

(Please note, we usually meet on the fourth Saturday of each month; we
had to move it up a week this month because of schedule conflicts with
retrocomputing events in other cities.)

I strongly recommend anyone in the area to visit. The tour is worth it on its own and you are just down the street from a nice used computer shop which actually does have everything and anything.

It's happening again this saturday. (October 22nd)

I will be there and I'll be draging my Silicon Graphics Personal IRIS 4D/20 workstation, complete with VT-100 serial terminal along.

I'll be there too (October 22nd). I'm glad to see someone has posted about it here. I'm bringing a 3 node VAXcluster (well, microVAXen) with a DTC01 (original DECtalk, 1983?), DECserver 200/MC terminal server and a VT100. Why? Because I like carrying lots of heavy things and trying to hook them back up again.

The museum is full of fully restored DEC computers, all powered up and running.

Wow, two VT-100's in one meeting. There might be a critical mass or something! I'm sure yours is in better shape than mine, though.
