Pardon our dust…

During this week, the Atlanta Historical Computing Society web site (atlhcs.org) will be moving web-hosts from a hosted account on WordPress.com to a independent server.  The site address will not change.  However some legacy features may break both temporarily and permanently.  If you are subscribed to email updates for blog posts, you should consider joining our Yahoo Groups mailing list temporarily as this feature will not be migrated.  WordPress.com does not provide your email addresses to us due to privacy concerns.  We will re-introduce this blog update feature soon, but subscribers will need to re-opt-in for blog updates.  Keep watching the site for details.

Some feature migrations will be delayed for about two weeks.  Users will be able to login to our new WordPress site to post comments using Facebook and Google+ accounts.  However our current ETA to reintroduce this feature is Nov 18.

Don’t forget our November monthly meeting is at the Computer Museum of America at the new location.

VCFSE 2.0

VCFSE 2.0 logoThe Atlanta Historical Computing Society and the Computer Museum of America are pleased to announce the second annual Vintage Computer Festival Southeast will take place May 3-4, 2014.

The venue will be the same CompUSA store building in Roswell, GA as last year, but this year’s exhibit space will be greatly enlarged, occupying the store’s entire retail space. About 2/3 of the space will be occupied by a museum display of personal computing artifacts from the Kenbak 1 forward. The remaining 1/3 of the retail space will contain hobbyist vintage computing exhibits. For those who missed last year or who would like to see it again, the Apple Pop-Up Museum from last year’s festival will again be available.

The popular retro-gaming area and introduction to soldering activity will be available again. This year, we are also working to bring in a number of vendors, assemble a stellar slate of speakers, and offer workshop experiences. Of course, the kids’ scavenger hunt will be back this year too.

Please visit the VCFSE 2.0 section of vintage.org website for full details on the event!
