Sounds awesome. Find out if we can scavenge for abandoned vintage gear in their sub-sub basement. We will haul old Unix severs out for free. 😐

There is a freight elevator and we don't have to deal with any stairs. They are looking into 220V in case we need that.

BL will be setting up their own exhibit in the same room. There will also be speeches by BL alums (presumably including Ken, Brian, etc.) and there will be lab tours (we're welcome to take part; I've already had the tour a couple of times over the years.)

Yes I know it's not in the spirit of Unix greybeards :) but everyone should wear khakis (or better) and a collared shirt (ideally a VCFed polo; not MARCH; Jeff B. can speak to our remaining inventory of VCFed shirts). We are guests of Bell Labs and we should look professional.
