So VCF East is April 4-6th (thank you Google!), and when I poked around the
site I found that there will be a number of hands-on workshops run all
weekend run by briel computing building some of their kits - they have
retro-1, micro Kim-1, an emulated Altair 8800, and a terminal kit.

I may have to buy & build one of them (I already have a first gen
retro-1) maybe a terminal or the emulated 8800 micro... Tempting.

Here's their website - http://www.brielcomputers.com/ - any other VCF
attendees want to join me spending a few hours, there's an article about
the kit building sessions on his homepage.

Should be fun - I may be there Sat & Sun, and I'll bring some old Mac bits
for the consignment area, maybe some old books also...
