Hey Captain Tony,

   Can’t wait for you to free up in November, as Pinhead said in Hellraiser, “we have such sights to show you...”

Cheers,

>> I also put my youngest son to work scraping our "sign" at the entrance to Infoage because it was peeling very badly. We painted it white with correct outdoor latex paint (I think it was spray painted before with white automobile primer or something). Later in the week we will add reflective lettering that says "Computer Museum". A bit captain obvious, but we are dealing with the public, LOL...
>> 
>> We hope to finish this and a few other projects in the next two weeks as we have some parts on order.
