I have a cool plotter i will bring and have it doing SGI and Apple logos just for entertainment value. It won't be connected to the UNIX systems since it's USB... unless I can find an old plotter and UNIX software to drive it.

We can write a little logbook in bash for people to play with--- or also maybe a version of Eliza they can talk to.
