I had a great time at System Source's Repair Workshop this past weekend.
Bob Roswell was a very generous and gracious host.
I left at 7:30PM on Friday night because the snow was piling up in NJ. I
live near InfoAge so the whole area got 12 inches of snow. But west and
southwest of my home, got little to none. So the drive to System Source was
a breeze with mostly highway. It took about 3 hours. Stayed at a hotel
Friday and Saturday night and got a good sleep.

When I got there Saturday things were in full swing with the usual suspects
from InfoAge repair workshops, plus the usual System Source suspects. So a
very good turnout of about 25 or so people.

Lots of stuff fixed as I saw.

I made some pickups of repaired VCF artifacts and drop-offs to be repaired

I loved looking at what was new and looking in more detail at the
exhibits in the museum. I also got to catch up on all my friends there and
talk about vintage computer stuff it was great!

I also got a chance to play with the Xerox Alto for a few hours and see
what worked and what didn't. Very cool and rare opportunity for a rare
machine that works! This was my favorite part of the weekend.

Maybe others want to chime in on what they were working on.
