Retro Weekend Sept 2018
For 2018's Retro Weekend at the Centre For Computing History in Cambridge we thought 'how can we beat last year's outstanding event?.' Fortunately the answer came in the donation of severalteen Grundy Newbrains plus docs, schematics and software by Gerald McMullon who was a Grundy staffer back in the early days of the machine. This gave us the idea of putting on a show of the biggest number of Newbrains on display in the world (which is a fairly safe claim).
After last year's show I was asked to bring the C65 again as people had rung the museum to request its presence. Pity I still hadn't fixed it. I had fixed other museum inhabitants though so it was a great excuse to get them out in public.
