Hi,

If you live in the area: Vintagebytes.CH has a special event on November 11 demonstrating a PDP-8, see link below:

This time we have a new location in Zurich instead of the usual Luzern. Everyone welcome. For more information: Veranstaltungen@VintageBytes.CH

Hello Oscar,

Not sure if I make it Tuesday but would be interesting.. is there a way to get regular updates about Swiss events?

Great! Hope you'll make it.

There's been a monthly meeting for the last year under the name of Vintagebytes.CH. Up to now, it always was once a month in Luzern, but we'll probably start to alternate between Zurich and Luzern a bit to cater for various geographic preferences... The upcoming events are always posted on the vintagebytes.ch (http://vintagebytes.ch) blog site. The agenda for the coming months is here (http://vintagebytes.ch/2014/09/06/ankuendigung-der-naechsten-termine-bis-ende-2014-sowie-ausblick-auf-2015/). But note the date for the PDP-8 event is now finalised as Nov. 11.

Regards,

Oscar.

Wish I had known sooner. Would have been good to spend a night in Zurich or Lucern or even if its still open at the Gasthof Cruz (I am sure that's wrongly spelt) in Megan...
... it would have been useful as I know have an SBC6210 albeit without a front panel.

Both locations are not bad for me I'm more or less in the middle. I registered for the vintagebytes forum. :)

Gasthof zum Kreuz in Meggen - close enough. Yes, run by the same family for six generations... not every industry turns around as radically as computing :)

Two days in advance is not giving too much time. Beg your pardon 8).
