David, when I’ve been at the museum I have not run it as I am unfamiliar with it. Perhaps if you’re at one of the upcoming workshops you could give me a crash course (pun intended) so I could run a demo for visitors.

When Bill Dromgoole was there he both wrote down and walked me through the diagnostic we use to show the machine running. It’s not sexy but for 99% of the people it’s enough blinking lights and whirring to get the “wow it actually works!” Response from them. I also have a video of Bill running the program that I can refer back to.

I would never attempt to mess with a machine I am not familiar with, but I should have asked a long time ago for you to show me the basics. I’d love to have yet another machine to demo for visitors.
