Hi everyone!

My "Retro Roadshow" event series has two awesome meet-ups happing in the next few days:
  1. As always, we're going to be hosting a free-to-the-public, hands-on event at The Local (an awesome indie coffee shop) in Alameda CA, on the last Wednesday of the month (Oct. 30th, in this case)
  2. Additionally, we're going to be a "featured attraction" at the East Bay Mini Maker Faire in Oakland, CA on Sunday Oct. 27! We're going to be stationed right near the entrance of the Faire, and we're working at a feverish pace to prep over a dozen awesome / rare / unusual vintage computers and video-games for attendees to play on. The Maker Faire organizers are really excited to have us at the event, so much that they've created a special discount code for anyone who wants to purchase tickets in advance on EventBrite - using code "RETRO19" gets several dollars off each ticket.
I get no 'kickbacks' or anything like that from ticket sales - I'm just excited to offer a discounted admission to this fantastic event to anyone who's as passionate about old computers as I am.

I'd love to see some of you in person at either (or both!) of these events!

PS Huge thanks to everyone here for assisting me with getting my SGI Indigo2 "Impact 10000" running again - this sexy purple beast is going to be one of the star attractions at both of these gatherings :)
