Frequently Asked Questions

Who are we?

The Atlanta Historical Computing Society is a user’s group for vintage computing / computer history / computer collecting enthusiasts.  We attempt to preserve computing history while providing educational outreach to the community.

Where do we meet?

In-person meetings are held once a month.  We’ve now moved to the Computer Museum of America.    We currently meet every 2nd Saturday from 1 to 5 pm.

The get-togethers are first about fun and social interaction, plus showing and playing with vintage systems,  open discussions, and more.  We try to have presentations by members as often as possible.

We intend that the group evolve into a stand-alone, self-governing, non-profit, and educational organization.

What are the rules concerning club governance?

Our club is governed in accordance with our Club By-Laws.

  1. Hi I have a Compaq Plus that I would like to sell and I am hoping that your group can help me appraise it and even find a buyer for it. It still turns on( the fan is running) but nothing comes up on the screen (maybe the os is gone or the hdd has failed) and I have some 5.5 floppies for it (it has a 5.5 fdd). I have pictures if you would like to see them. Thanks Tiia (tiiabird1@yahoo.com )

  2. Hello AHCS,

    I wanted to send you all a quick note to let you know how much I enjoyed myself at “The Vintage Computer Festival”. It was really fun I especially, enjoyed the soldering workshop, and look forward to further instructions on how to embellish the display!

    Also thanks to Sam, Ed Fair (I think was the gentleman’s name) and Bens family for helping me in my efforts to recover some ancient animation files on my iomega zip. I want to pursue this so, if you have any ideas I think we can make a deal, but just so you know I am but a poor artist. That said your group kindness and wisdom has made me richer!

    Thanks again,
    V. Cayse Cheatham aboutcayse@yahoo.com
