Retro Computer Event CHCH Monday 17 Oct 6:30pm

I've just received confirmation that "Retro Computer" special topic meeting of the CHCH Robotics Group will take place 6:30pm Monday 17 Oct at the NZART Branch 05 Clubrooms, 5 Idris Road...

##

Hello everyone,

By popular demand, the upcoming Robotics Group meeting will be dedicated
to an evening of vintage computing.

Time to dust down that old ISA PC, BBC micro, Sinclair crash-o-matic,
PDP11-03, SC/MP, 6800, 5602, TI990 etc. and bring them out for their
admiring public.

If we are lucky, Richard may be able to spare some time to talk to us
about his experience designing one of the sub-systems for Acorn.

Same time (6:30pm), same channel (NZART Branch 05 club rooms, 5 Idris
Road, Fendalton), with plenty of off street parking.

##

Members of the VIntage Computer Forums are welcome to come along. Bring anyone else who's interested!

I'm pretty sure there'll be some tables set up for people who have surplus equipment they want to move on.

Any questions, just PM me.

Much fun...and the release of the magic smoke from the IBM XT was one of the highlights.

Unfortunately my phone was full, so couldn't take any photos.
