    Braggart.  I'll refrain from saying what I can pan my head and
see.  ;-)

    If you're in the Providence, RI area this coming weekend, the
Retro-Computing Society of RI is holding its monthly open house
so you can see some really old iron (the earliest piece being a
Packard Bell 250, a 22-bit serial-architecture machine that uses
delay-line memory), some nice 1970s-vintage minis, 1980s-vintage
VAXen and superminis, and some later workstation-class machines.

    They're at Atlantic Mills on Manton Ave in Providence, room 411.
