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!

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

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.
