When the VCF is re-scheduled, we'll hopefully be able to do the tour of
The Computer Museum History Center, where they will have an actual 1620
that has been restored up and running.

FYI, part of the reason VCF was postponed was because the Computer Museum
tour had to be called off, due to increased security at Moffett Field
where the Museum is located.
