    Cool! Right around the corner from Long Island, NY! Barring work related travel I will be there.

    Same here...and I'm planning on taking the train down, so I shouldn't get disrupted by travel problems this time!

    @Evan: Also, my desktop is down, so any MARCH e-mails haven't been getting read. I think it's a power supply issue, but I've been traveling a lot for work and haven't had time to fix it. Why is it the vintage computers never seem to go down?!

    I will likely be attending this year. I will try and convince my ex-boss to drive up from NC with his S-100 machine collection. He founded a company that built and sold S100 systems and peripherals and was an active member of ACGNJ for many years.

    I so want to do a Unix booth or something at VCF. Just setup a nice and complete set of networked Sun, SGI, NeXT, DEC, and IBM systems all running their flavors of Unix and build the booth around that.
    Dammit, why are these always so far away?

    The drive to NJ is beautiful though!

    It would be great fun to have a 486 LAN Party whilst there. I love those old games!

    Please tell me you are joking.

    At the Vintage Computer Festival events, you won't find anything newer than a 186 (at least not on the microcomputer side -- perhaps some slightly newer minis or mobiles.)

    Hmm...If only these events were about 14,000km closer.

    You need think outside the metaphorical box. It's only 14,000km if you travel via the planet's perimeter. Tunnel though a chord instead. Much shorter that way!
