 In Sellam's defence, I did only ask for half a table
( although, I only got 1/3 because of overflow ). My exhibit
was small enough that it really didn't need more.
 I was there for the fun and I enjoyed it very much, as I'm
sure Sellam knows. The erector set analog computer was
fantastic. The PDP11 setup was great as well. I got to actually
touch a Curta calculator :)
 More to my passion, I got a pile of Polymorphic disk from
Marvin Johnston to archive. Really great stuff like the
original files for the manuals and such.
Thanks Sellam!
