Even in my area in west Cobb, the forecast does not indicate it will stop snowing until 6am tomorrow morning. I’m sure there are those of you who live in areas with much higher impact from what most Northerners would call a ‘light dusting’ that will have a worse situation than I tomorrow morning. Remember it’s not the people who know how to drive on wet/icy roads, it’s those who do not. Better safe than sorry so let’s cancel the December meeting tomorrow.
Be safe, drive save, watch out for those who don’t, and have a fantastic Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year, or vintage computing anniversary you are nerdy enough to know! And remember, Baby Jesus’ first computer was definitely a Tandy.
Our domain host migration is complete, however there are still some features of the old site that are not yet working – such as Google+ and Facebook comments. We are working toward resolving those by next weekend. Stay tuned for updates.
Also our monthly Meeting for December is at the normally scheduled time of Saturday Dec 9th from 1pm to 5pm. It is our Holiday meeting which means two things, bring a pot-luck dish and your favorite retro-gaming systems for all to play. There will also be an orientation session on the new web-site and an active attempt at recruitment to get more club members sharing vintage computing content here. See you there!
During this week, the Atlanta Historical Computing Society web site (atlhcs.org) will be moving web-hosts from a hosted account on WordPress.com to a independent server. The site address will not change. However some legacy features may break both temporarily and permanently. If you are subscribed to email updates for blog posts, you should consider joining our Yahoo Groups mailing list temporarily as this feature will not be migrated. WordPress.com does not provide your email addresses to us due to privacy concerns. We will re-introduce this blog update feature soon, but subscribers will need to re-opt-in for blog updates. Keep watching the site for details.
Some feature migrations will be delayed for about two weeks. Users will be able to login to our new WordPress site to post comments using Facebook and Google+ accounts. However our current ETA to reintroduce this feature is Nov 18.
Don’t forget our November monthly meeting is at the Computer Museum of America at the new location.
