Lots of Apple II topics @ Vintage Computer Festival East - April 4-6

AppleFritter'rs: there will be lots of delicious Apples at the VCF East this spring! A real Apple 1, an homebrew Apple II sound card, a lecture by Franklin president Joel Shusterman, and several examples of rare Franklin prototypes are all on the agenda. Read on for more info....

-------------------

The Vintage Computer Festival East returns on April 4-6, at the InfoAge Science Center, in Wall, New Jersey. It is hosted by MARCH: Mid-Atlantic Retro Computing Hobbyists.

Friday: VCF East University -- solely devoted to technical classes -- plus you get free pizza, and Tektronix will give away an oscilloscope!

Saturday: The main show -- lectures in the morning, exhibit hall in the afternoon, along with a consignment/vendors room and tours of the MARCH computer museum open all day long.

Lecturers will cover topics as diverse as IBM punched cards, the IEEE 802 LAN/MAN committee, Amiga, Franklin, the Internet Archive, security, and more.

The exhibit hall will feature 36 booths covering everything from mainframes to minicomputers to DIY hobby systems to eight-bitters. You'll see everything from a real Apple 1 to a UNIVAC mainframe!

And don't miss our hands-on workshops -- build amazing replicas of famous systems (with show discount prices!); learn to fix your own vintage computers; check out the latest products from five professional vendors; and so much more we couldn't possibly list it all here.

Details, ticket prices, directions, and more at at http://www.vintage.org/2014/east/ ... or be social with us at http://www.facebook.com/vcfeast.

Almost always working weekends and it is right in my own backyard!

Gotta try and come this time, at least for one day. Hope to see you there (might take me a whole 15 minutes to drive there from work....if I can get off of work!!!!)

Zan: even if you can't make it (though you'd be nuts not to!), you should still join our "MARCH" user group, and come see our museum (also at the Wall Township facility) sometime. Among other highlights is a Mimeo that Corey C. built for us: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/midatlanticretro
