I want to thank Evan for the opportunity to help out a little in the warehouse. The amount of resources we have is amazing, but more work is needed.
I was fortunate enough to have some extra vacation days to burn and be able to help.

Kelly and I spent about 5 hours working in the warehouse again today.
We finished sorting/organizing the Tandy section (reduced from four
overflowing shelving units to less than 3) and also the TI section
(reduced from 1 overflowing unit to less than 1. We also moved all the
surplus items including lots of Tandy/TI/Epson from a pallet onto a
shelving unit, so that it's easier to move around between now and
Festivus-time. (Another benefit is shelving units use less floor space
than pallets, which means more room for THE BIG COMPUTER arriving next
Here's a picture of the surplus unit: https://tinyurl.com/ybjmalfp.
What's for sale at Festivus:
- Six Tandy Color Computers (various models)
- Thirteen TI-99/4A computers (some white, some black/silver)
- Two TI Peripheral Expansion Boxes
- Nine Epson QX-10/QX-16 (I forget the exact breakdown)
- Four Epson monitors and possible one more
- One lonely Mac SE
None of these are tested. NO TESTING OR TAKING APART WILL BE ALLOWED AT
FESTIVUS -- we don't want people tearing into stuff at a social event.
Donation amounts for this surplus hardware will be very low, but it's a
gamble how they look/work on the inside. Honor system: please don't buy
these just to flip them.
Kelly not included...
