It started out in bizarro world: Ian skipped this one, and Tony worked
on Atari, Commodore, and Tandy gear (no Apple II!). :)....
Jeff S. tested some of our Tandy hardware.
Anthony and Jason worked on getting a Counterpoint system up. Refresher:
Counterpoint built a few hundred Unix workstations on contract to AT&T
in 1986, AT&T canceled the project, and so these were never released.
The ones we have may be the last ones around. It took some brainstorming
(and some trial-and-error), but this morning one of the workstations
came to life!
Drom stopped by, unexpected, and worked on the Univac.
There was a Don Casselli sighting, but I didn't have a chance to talk to
him (was busy withe museum visitors).
I worked on the museum info kiosks. Big accomplishment: I installed
Apache as our intranet server. Never installed that before, so I learned
something new. Jason provided tech support for a few of my questions.
Jameel donated two micro-form-factor PCs for powering the kiosks. I
wiped them (they had Windows 10) and put on Linux, of course. :) I
installed OpenKiosk on them.
Tony's projects were for the VCF East Software Store.
Jeff S. worked on his MOBIDIC replica which will someday power our
I'm not sure what Dean did.
Jeff B. helped out with a little of everything.
