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.
Join us for a public celebration of computer history and nostalgia on April 21 and 22 in Roswell, GA!

Due to on-going construction at the Computer Museum of America, we are returning to our old meeting location for the months of February through at least April. It will be at Christ the Lord Lutheran Church in Lawrenceville, GA. More information can be found on our events calendar. The address is : 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.
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.
