FYI - the small museum fell through, at least as far as the IBM PCs go.
These were all MARCH-supplied units.

If anyone is in the south western Phila region I plan to go to the movie
tonight. There is a 3d showing at the Regal Brandywine TownCenter @ 7PM.
I'd love to meet anyone who's interested in seeing the movie tonight.  It
should be a good movie.

I was on set for a couple of days, I saw everything...I was Magneto's
circular control room, the Cerebrum, the mansion, the Egyptian pyramid,
everything.  I ate lunch with the crew.  Other than US customs attempting
to return with it was a lot of fun.  I have not been allowed to say
anything until the movie came out..Hard to keep this all a secret.  whew
glad I can spill the beans now.

Mid-Atlantic Retro Computing Hobbyists should be in the credits at the end,
watch for it.
