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 
life-size replica.

I'm not sure what Dean did.

Jeff B. helped out with a little of everything.
