Vintage Computing on Modern Hardware – Feb 4 Meeting

The meeting Saturday, February 4th looks to be lots of fun, with several members demonstrating software emulators which run on a modern hardware but simulate historic computers. These will include:

While few of us can afford to own many vintage machines, the emulators are generally free, so we can all enjoy interacting with history this way. The presenters will do demos, talk a little about the emulators and represented machines and tell us how to get them.

One thing I found from preparing my part (UNIVAC), is that getting these running and doing interesting things isn‚t as easy as one might imagine. The folks presenting will give us the tips we need to have fun with these critters, easily. Should be a hoot!

Directions to Christ the Lord Lutheran Church

Hope to see you there!
