RE: [N8VEM-S100:4516] Trip Report - Met Crusty OMO

Hi Matt,

Thanks, it was a pleasure to have you and Jean over yesterday.  Thank you again for lending me your Super ELF,  I hope to have it fixed up in time for the September VCF show... we'll see if I can get through this 8080 Project firmware fast enough.

You should go visit Dave Dunfield, he lives very close to you and has a wonderful collection (less a couple of systems which I bought from him).  But he still has some very nice early intel systems (which are beyond my focus and budget, mostly beyond my budget).

I'm glad to see your posting here, which means you made it home safe and sound.  You must have rolled in near midnight? Sorry for keeping you here so late, time flies eh?

Managed to drive to Toronto yesterday to meet Josh Bensadon a.k.a. Crusty OMO, and visited his Basement Museum of Early Computing. Somewhat of an eye-opening experience. I knew such collections existed, but I didn't expect to see one on this trip. I recognized most of the pieces from drooling over ads in "Kilobaud" 35 years ago, but it was the first time I'd seen most of the actual units.
Also got to pick up my 8080 boards, and see the prototype, which is a masterpiece of delicate soldering. And I saw one of the assembled prototypes for the mini-FP board. That is going to be a fantastic kit when it goes to production!
Josh, thankyou for an excellent evening! It makes me wonder what sorts of working collections others have managed to assemble.
