The seventh iteration of the Vintage Computer Festival Southeast, commonly known as VCFSE 7.0, will be here on April 27-28, 2019. All members of The Atlanta Historical Computing Society are encouraged to spread the word far and wide, on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Nextdoor.com, everywhere. Tell your friends, neighbors, family, schools, fellow students, co-workers, everyone. The graphic above, from the Computer Museum of America’s Facebook page, is shareable across many platforms, so please feel free to use it to get the word out; just include the following URL in your promotions:
Also, please don’t forget that we still need volunteers to cover the concessions and consignments areas.
We want this festival to be the best VCFSE ever!
Because the Atlanta Historical Computing Society will not have access to the usual venue on the usual second-Saturday-of-the-month meeting day, the April meeting has been moved ahead one week to Saturday, April 6, 2019. The time (1pm-5pm) and meeting place (Christ the Lord Lutheran Church in Lawrenceville, GA) of the April meeting will otherwise remain the same. This earlier date will also allow the club to address any last minute VCFSE 7.0 concerns or issues in a timely fashion. Please make a note of the earlier date.
All current and prospective Atlanta Historical Computing Society members are encouraged to attend this final meeting before the big Vintage Computer Festival SouthEast 7.0 show on April 27-28.
This Saturday, January 12, The Atlanta Historical Computing Society will hold it’s regular monthly meeting from 1pm-5pm; this will be the first club meeting of 2019. Any and all members, along with anyone who holds a keen interest in historical computing, are encouraged to attend. And if you have any computers, consoles, etc. that you need help fixing, or if you have anything you’d like to show off to the club, bring them along, too.
Among the topics to be discussed in this meeting will be fleshing out further details about Vintage Computer Festival SouthEast 7.0, which is scheduled for April 27-28, 2019. Please don’t miss this meeting, which will be held at our normal meeting place: Christ the Lord Lutheran Church, 1001 Duluth Highway, Lawrenceville, GA 30043.
It’s that time of year again… gobble, gobble! While there will be no free Punch n’ Pie at this November meeting – I know, more people will come if you say there will be free Punch n’ Pie – there will be plenty at the December Holiday Party next month. But never fear… there will be plenty of festivities at this Saturday’s meeting on November 10th. Check out the calendar links for information about the meeting location and times and the North Atlanta HamJam 2018 happening in the morning.
I’m sure there will be many treasures hauled in from both the morning’s HamJam and last weekend’s Stone Mountain HamFest. I (Alan) will be giving an overview presentation on this website’s Word Press system and how to use it. Hopefully we can get more folks contributing content to the site. And there will be the usual free pile, socializing, and David’s insane project of the month.
Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
Happy Halloween all! So – you have the vintage computer equipment, which seems to stretch as far forward as a circa 2003 PC. What can you do with that equipment? Several things, a few of which are listed below:
A new game recently ported to the Kaypro! Gets a whole 3 FPS!
April’s meeting will be at Christ the Lord Lutheran Church in Lawrenceville, GA. More information can be found on our events calendar.
The address 1001 Duluth Hwy, Lawrenceville, GA 30043. We meet in the side building, to the left of the main entrance, if you’re facing the front.
Kyle and I just returned from the Vintage Computing Festival – Pacific Northwest after also spending the better part of a week hanging out with a gaggle of PDP-8 and general DEC enthusiasts in the Portland area. It was a great time and a fabulous show. I look forward to returning next year. Here are some photos of the event, the Living Computer Museum where it was hosted (including some behind the scenes) and some travel pics of the Seattle area.
