Got any pics of the Packard Bell? I might be interested

A few things for sale

David Greelish
 

If anyone is interested in any of the following, please email me and let’s make a deal! I can then bring it to the get-together on Saturday.

  • Macintosh IIvx: With an Apple display, keyboard and mouse. All in very nice condition, but the hard drive is not working/booting. I have verified that the floppy and CD works.
  • eMac: In great shape with keyboard and mouse.
  • Packard Bell Legend Pentium 75Mhz with generic keyboard/mouse and 4x3 flat panel display. Has original Win 95 load and original software CDs with it.
  • Tandy 1100 FD laptop
  • PowerBook 1400: Works great!
  • "Atari: A Visual History" book from Kickstarter: New! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1294981709/atari-a-visual-history
  • Lee Hart's 1802 "Membership Card” - A very cool little COSMAC ELF in an Altoids tin! http://www.retrotechnology.com/memship/memship.html

Email me for more information!


Happy Holiday Time!

Possible VCF venue

Rob Osattin
 

There’s a union hall on S. Marietta Parkway, near Kennesaw State University, that is available for rent. I don’t know much about it but it’s 9000 sq ft. My radio club looked at it a few years ago for our annual hamfest but ended up at the civic center. Not sure why.

Machinists Aerospace Union Hall
1032 South Marietta Pkwy SE, Marietta, GA 30060
Marietta, USA
(770) 428-3385

The Cobb County Civic Center is near there and is a good exhibit venue but it’s probably as costly as Jim Miller.

Ok. We work in Norcross, so maybe we can plan an extended lunch break one day. Text me your phone # and we'll coordinate outside of this email thread.

Potential VCF location

Joseph Gilmore
 

Hey everyone,

I have a friend who is a Freemason and said his lodge in Chamblee has a large room available for rent. He estimates it's about 5000sf. They have about 25 tables and 100 chairs available. Rent is very cheap, probably less than $500, but we need to verify this. I attached a couple of photos of the room.  

I can go take a look and get a better idea of the size. If anyone else is interested in seeing the space, let me know and I can coordinate it. My friend has a key so we can get in any time.

- Joe

Here's an updated list of who's bringing what to this Saturday's Annual Holiday Pot Luck Meeting:

Earl: Meat dish (maybe Sonny's BBQ?)
Alan: Main dish (TBD), vegan side dish, and salad
Mauricio: Bourbon Balls
Mark: Gluten-free peanut butter cookies, eggnog (without the nog...sorry)
Brad: Soft drinks

I would encourage everyone else to bring something to the meeting; the more we have, the more festive it will be. And it doesn't have to be homemade, either; we all know that store-bought pickles taste much, much better than Aunt Bee's kerosene gerkins. ;-)

Re: VCFSE 2020

@AtariLynxHandyCast
 

Hi, David:

Sorry I didn't see your post until this morning; believe it or not, for the last two weeks, I've been having computer problems!

I haven't seen any response from anyone else to this post, so at this point, I don't know if there is any consensus about a final venue for VCFSE. I would hope that this topic will be discussed at our meeting this weekend. In any case, perhaps this reply to your post will bump this thread up to remind everyone to update the club on what progress (if any) has been made in securing a venue.

See you Saturday!

Mark

Re: Atari 800 and peripherals at estate sale

Could not tell.  They seem home built but one had an old style game port.

Re: Atari 800 and peripherals at estate sale

What kind of towers? If there's anything pre-Win98 I'd be interested

Re: Atari 800 and peripherals at estate sale

Unblakeable
 

Thought I'd let people know there is still some stuff available.  Some commodore floppy drives including one in box for $35. Some CRTS a couple of Toshiba laptops 520CDTs I think and a couple of vintagey tower PC's.  I picked up an Atari 800xl, 1020 printer and 1010 , cassette all in box for $75.  Also saw a bunch of commodore manuals but no computers.

Ok I’ll load up the SW on my Mac and bring it. It does USB and SCSI. It’s just spare right now.
