[vcf-midatlantic] DC Area Head Count

I'm in the DC area  ( Currently in Hagerstown MD ).

My interest in retro systems has jumped around over the years. But I 
have a small collection of Macs, a couple C64's & 128's, a growing 
collection of calculators, a bigger Atari 2600 collection and a few misc 

Mainly these days, I seem to like doing retro-ish things on modern 
computers ( The wonderful Raspberry Pi makes this pretty easy ).

On rather amusing example is I got this Weird UNIX for Macs Called 
MachTen running in Real Memory mode on Minivmac.  Some day, I'm going to 
go a big step further and fully restore my Mac Plus, and make it a UNIX 
workstation for no other reason than, "I can."

I do have one question however ... how does one acquire a Cray J90 
anything? or any Cray for that matter?  An EL-92 or 94 ( so I can 
actually power it in a house ) has been on my wish list for decades.
