Modest amount of visitors today -- it was too nice outside to visit a 

A group of 20-somethings came in for a tour. They were smart, polite, 
and asked good questions. They seemed amazed by computer life before 
Windows and about the myth vs. reality of how Apple formed.

Jimmy from the model trains group is a programmer in the day job and 
helped me debug the information kiosk. It wasn't always returning to the 
homepage after the set amount of time. Hard to fix that without seeing 
the kiosk program code, so he showed me how to put some Javascript into 
the my content pages that accomplishes the same thing. This way is 
better because I can customize the events that trigger idle states, the 
amount of idle time for each page, etc.

I did some warehouse work too. Organized more of the robotics and 
educational/trainer kits, and disposed of a growing pile of unloved 
books/software (certain things that nobody took from the 'free' pile at 
VCF East.)

Doug is docent tomorrow.
