    I had a great time at Dave McGuire's Large Scale Systems Museum (LSSM) 
on Saturday.  Lots of interested folks touring the museum.  Several 
Federation members in attendance, including (obviously) Dave McGuire, Matt 
Patoray, Connor Krukosky, Sridhar Ayengar and wife Roopa, Ian Primus, Jeff 
Jonas and Dan Roganti.  Corey Little was just down the street with his 
pop-up CP/Museum.

    We managed to sneak in a little work on one of Dave's newly acquired 
systems, an HP 2117F mini.  The power supply checked out (and no foam!), 
but entering a program from the front panel indicated some sort of memory 
issues.  The system came with a 2102E High Speed memory controller, four 
64KW HS memory boards, M.E.M. board, Memory Protect and D.C.P.C. board. 
The I/O cage had the Time Base Generator, Firmware Expansion Module (FEM), 
BACI, Terminal interface and 13037C disc controller interface.  All it 
needs is an HP-IB interface (12821) and possibly some additional ROMs, and 
it can run RTE-6/VM.
