I totally concur. More people should band together in their regions to
form computer history centers. In the very least get clubs going where
you meet at least once a month to swap hints & tips and work on machines
together. We have an informal "club" here in the Bay Area where we meet
monthly at the offices of Stan Sieler. Stan picks a rough theme and we
all bring machines to work on. We swap stuff, bring information and parts
that others need, etc. It's a lot of fun.
