Good afternoon! I had recently joined this list and was interested in making some contribution to the exhibits at the upcoming VCF-East event. I had a few ideas, and was hoping to get some feedback before applying.
One thought was that I could contribute to the group Unix exhibit. It looks like there are a large variety of systems already on the list, but I could contribute my Tandy 12/6000 running Xenix and an SGI O2 running Irix. I could also contribute a Wyse 60 and VT-220 terminal, some software, and publications (I have some of those giant SCO boxes full of books and stuff).
Another idea was a separate display highlighting some games running on business machines. Imagine 2 or 3 terminals (maybe even a Decwriter) connected to VAX, PDP11, Xenix, etc running some text adventures and such.
Finally, I was thinking about a display centered around the 68000 CPU (40 years since introduction). It would include many classic systems, and I have a whole library of 68000 family data books and developer materials.
Suggestions welcome, and if none of these ideas sound good I'm ok with that too :-)
