Apple Lisa demo

I’m looking for an unattended demo that we can leave running on our Apple Lisa at the VCF Museum. Does anyone have/know if something exists?

We are about to start a big push to have everything up and running in the museum for days we are open (Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday)

Thanks,
Corey

Lisa

I would reach out to  John Woodall. He helped me get my Lisa up and running again and has LOTS of Lisa stuff.

Let us know what you end up

Let us know what you end up doing for a self running demo. I would also like to have something like that.

I'm going to need to figure

I'm going to need to figure out something soon.  I haven't had time to contact John W.   We had over 50 visitors on Wednesday and their kids kept turning on the lisa and trying to use it everytime I turned my back.  Normally I don't mind since most of the machines had something "demo'ish" or a game running, but the lisa didn't and you can "mess" things up if you are just poking and typing around.    They even got the lisa into a state where it wouldn't shutdown.  I had to actually pull the plug.   Granted this was an exception to have so many people at once, but we will be hosting a bunch of school visits in the next few weeks so having a self running demo will be nice.

 

Cheers,

Corey
