Well, now we’re talking. It’s a four hour trip for me, but if you’re going…

That’s pretty much all I’d need to know.


can’t come but I wish you all the best. Wash those hands a lot, please.


Do you have a list of your collection?

Are you from Ohio?
I would love from some out-of-state folks to join the event.
Does the Ohio community have a Slack, Discord, or anything?
I gotta figure out which boards from that massive collection I want to see.

The Ohio area group does have a Discord channel. Here’s the link to the Reddit post for the upcoming meetup, scroll down from there for the Discord link.

You folks from Indiana are absolutely welcome to slide on over to Columbus March 14 for the usual shenanigans, just be sure to get your five buck ticket on Eventbrite.

Fizzgig has a museum quality collection. Looks like he’s been steadily adding to it since I last saw him. I want to ogle the OG Space Cadet board before I die. It’s one of those Bucket List items.

Can I request: Space Cadet, Blue Alps, IBM Industrial, Beamspring, some vintage Apple boards.
Random question, are you the Craigslist post in central Indiana looking to buy vintage boards and computers?
