Dave Gesswein powering up the R.E.S.I.S.T.O.R.S. historic PDP-8 computer for the first time in 40 years. A magnificent restoration achievement.

My pick for best exhibit of the show was Doug Crawford's comprehensive VISICALC, with an impressive display of systems running VISICALC, plus a spreadsheet program he wrote for the RCA ELF.

Mike Loewen's TRS 80 Model 4 exhibit featured a unit with a hi-res display.

Dave McGuire's fabulous Digital Pavilion was a smorgasbord of DEC goodness that filled a truck.

I was impressed with the number of Amigas at this years event, including those brought by Mr. Winters and Mr. Becker.

Here is a photo from my exhibit, a small demo of the MITS Altair 680 running off a Teletype ASR 33 and Hazeltine 1510.

pictures from the show (I got everyone, but some photos are not up to my usual quality standards because I used my phone and not my regular camera.)

P.S. Yes there were a ton of Apple computers at the show too.
