It's gotten better since it left MCCC campus...

It is maybe 66% PeeCee, 34% Other (seen folks selling Macs, SGIs, DECs, HPs, Suns, odd electronic bits, etc.).

Always bargains, typically stuff that makes no sense in an Ebay-context (too heavy to ship, or something you just have to see to purchase)...

It beats any local Hamfest for computer stuff, at least any I've been to, bt I've not been to "Dayton" or "Timmonium".

Oh, and beware the TCF curse - weather will be extreme, either extremely cold, extremely hot, or extremely wet - one year I saw (swear to $DEITY) horizontal rain! ;^)
