    Default At minimum: 10 Apple 1 computers at VCF West!

    Today I can announce that 10 original Apple 1 computers will be displayed at VCF West, and we're working on getting more. Several of these will be up-and-running. Original and current owners will join early Apple employees in a panel to discuss the computers, why they were purchased, how they were used, and what the owners plan to do in the future. So, buy your tickets online now. http://vcfed.org/wp/festivals/vintag...festival-west/

    I don't fully know how VCF: East went down, but are people calling for security again?

    There has NEVER been a security problem at a VCFed event.

    But, all kidding aside, we are hiring an armed guard for this special attraction.

    10 Apple I's with a value of $30K+ each and are small enough to stick in a bag need probably more then 1 security guard (he will need to use the restroom and take breaks).
    What I collect: 68K/Early PPC Mac, DOS/Win 3.1 era machines, Amiga/ST, C64/128
    Nubus/ISA/VLB/MCA/EISA cards of all types
    Boxed apps and games for the above systems
    Analog video capture cards/software and complete systems

    All I can say without starting an argument is: That is amazing.
    I can't wait to see what is at this show.

    We agree!

    For everyone else: there's no need to argue. The computers will never be left alone during the show. Many of their owners and our staff will be around the whole time. That plus the armed guard will keep everything safe.

    We invited him. His schedule ia perpetually busy. We hope he decides to go, and we'll certainly make an announcement if he tells us with enough notice.

    According to the top of vcfed.org web page, it hasn't happened yet
    I'm still being told not to miss it!
