I had two families of three come through, a father with his son and daughter and a mother with her two sons. The first family the father was the truly interested party (the son less so, the daughter too young to know what she was seeing)

The second family they were all interested but the one son didn't want to leave.  Played with every machine we had running, asked lots of questions, was a bit over anxious but very polite when asked to not try to reconfigure some machines! He was also very appreciative of the fact that we had so many vintage machines running.

He truly would have stayed the rest of the day. He also happens to have excellent taste!  His mother told me his room is filled with Classic Macs ;-)

Bill got some serious work done on the Univac and I got to help lift heavy things (pulled one unit out so he could work on a fan.....I pick things up and I put them back down!) and I got to help run a memory test and watch it PASS!! Very excited to see this machine coming along, just too cool!

I had enough time to get the Bell & Howell apple II plus running. Ended up being two bad 4116 ram chips that were the issue. I replaced them with known good ones and the machine passed a good 30 minute continuous memory test cycle. It is tagged and back in the warehouse.

Quiet day for visitors but great day of company and working with the Univac!
