Still catching up after my Workshop appearance and work Sunday. Good to 
see my friends again and all-that-hardware. A mountain of 1960's 
transistor modules! Macs of various flavors. An early early Lear-Siegler 
terminal. Car repairs or avoidance thereof. And of course the VCF Museum.

I've not captioned the photos much on my Web page - send me ID's and 
details so I can update the Web page.

My fun was to take a S-100 system obtained Saturday, and getting it to 
power on Sunday. That is, after cleaning out the dust and subjecting to 
the Mach 1 power-vacuum at Infoage.

Very careful powering process - Variac to bring up the S-100 power caps, 
keep the voltage down when running the box. Ohmic checks on the S-100 
cards to look for shorted caps. Then adding cards to the chassis to 
check the regulators at work. No problems, no explosions. I'll have a 
Web page on restoring that Problem Solver System box and cards, soon. 
Had some interesting ownership.
