I have created a Discord server for anyone interested:

https://discord.gg/tCUPCTw <https://discord.gg/tCUPCTw>

Use that link to join. Discord can be used like Slack - with just a web browser or client for PC/OSX iOS/Android. It will require an email address to register. It's very useful for real-time or time-delayed questions, discussions and even voice chats. Please join if you can. There is a channel where we can discuss VCFE'19 and firm up plans for things as it approaches. 

I'm also interested in late 80's m68 SGI but the are so incredible rare, i may have to settle for Sun m68k.

See you all around, and hopefully there will be a 1990 UNIX exhibit sometime in 2019!
