Seattle Retro-Computing Society Inaugural Meeting June 25th

| 1 Comment

More retro-show annoucements! Checking the N8VEM mailing list this past weekend, I spotted a posting for the Seattle Retro-Computing Society's inaugural meeting (text posted below). Would be neat to see some SGIs there in addition to the usual crowd of retro machines.

I am pleased to announce... the Seattle Retro-Computing Society's inaugural meeting, on Saturday, June 25th, 2011!

Do you do any of the following with old computers near Seattle?

+ Use them
+ Collect them
+ Play games on them
+ Write programs for them
+ Develop new hardware for them
+ Help other people do any of the above

If your answer was "yes," as I expect it will be if you're reading this near Seattle, then the SRCS is for you! We exist so you can show off your awesome stuff, bounce ideas off of fellow enthusiasts, and be inspired by one another's achievements, plans and aspirations.

No idea is too big or too small, and we're not picky about what flavor of vintage machine you prefer! Come on down and tell us about it!

The meeting is graciously hosted by the Living Computer Museum, a relatively new organization which is building a computer museum in Seattle's SODO neighborhood. There will be refreshments, presentations on various vintage topics of interest, and enough table space & power to set up anything you may want to show off!

For further details, please see our page at http://srcs.nfshost.com/.
Hope to see you there!

I am the guy who started the Seattle meetings, and we've had two of them now that were quite successful. I encourage you and your readers to come down and join in! We meet at 10:30 AM on the fourth Saturday of each month. More details are available on the website, which we have now moved to its own domain at http://www.seattleretrocomputing.com/ (the old one just redirects to it now). A higher SGI presence would of course be welcome, along with any other type of vintage machine you like to play with!
