Notes from the Museum

Busy, Busy, Busy

A very hectic day today (Sat) for all the volunteers with work done on the PC gallery, some nice interactive white boards, Sun Servers, another 803 fault and some more box moving.

Lights, Camera, Action!

Busy day yesterday - just about two ish a crowd arrived and swarmed over the museum! I was away with Lin, Pete, Ben and Peter having a meeting with the exhibition builder trying to decide on lighting. We made the decisions and returned to find the museum full of visitors.

Filming and photographs

Great reporter/presenter/camera woman from BBC Look East arrived today to record an item about Matthew's grant from the PRS.

New museum website goes live

After much burning of midnight oil over the past 2 weeks by Peter, Kevin and Stephen, the new website content was finally completed in the early hours of this morning.

The UK Slide Rule Circle arrive

We are working with the UKSRC to build this exhibition and it looks very good indeed! I hope to get pictures up soon. Who knew there were so many different types?

Elliott 803 problems and fixes

The 803 was getting more and more temperature sensitive to the point that it was only behaving if left the best part of the day to warm up gently.

The new web site is almost complete

It has only taken Peter and Kevin about a week of not sleeping to do it!

BBC web site techy page guys need a working original Apple Macintosh!

We have several it seems, and one seems to work! Having said that, one caught fire and the other blew the workshop fuses. Mark from the Beeb was sent off with the only working one!
