I practically gave away two operational NeXTStations w/OpenStep 4.2 just before I came to Switzerland in 2016. Thank you for reminding me of that error.

Will try and get a long this year (I always seem to forget it is on until these EF reminders ) . The list of systems that will be there this year looks very interesting.



Note to self - Must enter a note in the diary and email them in the summer to apply for a table for 2019

Thanks for the offer, but I would not be able to make 1 full day, let alone 2 days this year. I'll PM you with what I would display if I had the chance.

This is so cool. I have saved it in my diary and forwarded it on to my entire team at work, hopefully I can bring a decent size crowd to support.

Really looking forward

Sounds very cool, unfortunately I can't go.

When I was a 11-year old kid I had an industrial TRS-80 Started learning Basic in it.

You can always use that expertise to support the PiDP11/70 that has just become available : https://hackaday.io/project/8069-pidp-11

Thanks, Jdr! We had so much fun, we spent almost the whole day there! Making a synthesizer and "target shooting" were a couple of favorites (no shooting games allowed in our house).
