Notes from the Museum

Air conditioning, Elliott 803 fault finding and classic cars

Scorchio - the weekend was a very hot affair and we saw some very nice classic cars and bikes on Sunday.

Holidays, new gallery started and Elliott 803 activities

After a much needed holiday in Cornwall for some of the volunteers over the past 2 weeks, it's back to volunteering at the museum (which we all enjoy, honest!)... This blog covers the previous 2 weeks activities

Air conditioning (almost) installed and archive shelving completed

A hot weekend resulted in a lot of visitors to the museum and frustration with the air conditioning...

The punch card kit and IBM 1130 arrives, great weather for the BBQ and a busy bank holiday

The fine weather over the Bank Holiday weekend resulted in over 2,500 visitors to the museum so a sterling effort by all to cope with one of the busiest times this year.

Archive preparation, server cabinet reorg and an Intellec 4004

It was a busy week and weekend for the volunteers with lots of activity in various parts of the museum.

PC gallery officially opens and a visit from LUG

After many months of hard graft the new History of Personal Computing Gallery officially opens.

New phones, IRIS is working again and a new reception information board

Another busy bank holiday weekend and we are able to open on all 3 days. Thanks to all the volunteers who gave up their time over the weekend.

IRIS is sick, the shop opens and new pictures

A lovely day on Saturday brought in a lot of visitors and we had a good volunteer turnout as well.

Normal service has resumed and a nice donation

After a very busy Easter weekend things returned to some form of normality this week...
