AHCS Virtual Social This Saturday at 2:00pm!

Stop by our AHCS Virtual Social this Saturday at 2:00 PM EST!

Show off your latest vintage projects and acquisitions every Saturday through July 4 at 2:00pm at our weekly AHCS Virtual Social.  Share your “back in the day” stories. Or, if you are particularly passionate about a certain machine or piece of software, ask an AHCS member about presenting a 15-minute presentation at a future Social to talk about it.  Everyone who attends the Social is also encouraged to ask anyone online for help with their current or future projects.

The official and verbose Zoom invite will be posted every week on our groups.io page here; just keep checking Eric Lyons’ messages on that page to see the invite code and passcode that will allow you to log into the next Social. And if you’re not already following the AHCS groups.io page, sign up (it’s free!) to make sure that you never miss any news about the Atlanta Historical Computing Society or about our weekly Virtual Socials!

AHCS Meeting is This Saturday at 1pm

The next meeting of The Atlanta Historical Computing Society will be held this Saturday, March 14, 2020. We will meet at the usual time (1pm-5pm) and meeting place (Christ the Lord Lutheran Church in Lawrenceville, GA). All current and prospective Atlanta Historical Computing Society members are encouraged to attend.

The main topic of this month’s meeting will be to discuss and finalize details for this year’s Vintage Computer Festival SouthEast 8.0, to be held in partnership with the Southern Fried Gaming Expo in July.

In addition, club member Mauricio Vives will host a presentation: “Operating Vintage Arcade Circuit Boards,” in which he will draw from his experience collecting these boards., many of which will be showcased at the meeting. All attendees are encouraged to stick around after the business of the meeting has concluded (usually we’re done with business around 3pm) to enjoy Mauricio’s presentation.

See you this Saturday!

We Need A Presenter for AHCS Meeting on March 14, 2020

The next meeting of The Atlanta Historical Computing Society will be held on Saturday, March 14, 2020. We will meet at the usual time (1pm-5pm) and meeting place (Christ the Lord Lutheran Church in Lawrenceville, GA). All current and prospective Atlanta Historical Computing Society members are encouraged to attend.

The main topic of this month’s meeting will be to finalize the venue for this year’s Vintage Computer Festival SouthEast 8.0.

In addition, it is important that our club get back into having formalized presentations by its members during each monthly meeting. The presentation can be about any topic that is vintage computer-related; perhaps a history of one particular brand or type of computer (macro, mini, or micro); or perhaps a review of a certain type of vintage software (early productivity software, your favorite version of BASIC, etc.); or even maybe an in-depth look at a groundbreaking chip (6502, Z80, 68000, etc.). It can be about just about anything, as long as it relates to the club’s focus, historical computing. Obviously, visual aids such as examples of the item(s) being discussed, as well as any supplemental documents, would enhance the presentation and make it more engaging. Audio/visual equipment may also be available for those wanting to provide a projected Powerpoint presentation; just ask any club officer. The length of the presentation should run between 10 and 20 minutes. If you have a topic that would ideal for a presentation at one of the meetings, please contact Earl Baugh (President), Jon Guidry (Vice President), or Mark Little (Secretary), or reply to the posting at the AHCS groups.io page to schedule it for either this or a future meeting. Thanks.

See you March 14!
