I haven't managed to source a projector. If anyone has one, please do bring it along. Also, my laptop will be no use. It is one of the new MacBooks with only USB-C and I don't have the required dongle for video out. So, again, if anyone has a suitable laptop please bring that along too.
There is so much wonder in the universe; why should you want to imagine that there is more?

I don’t think so. Although USB C and Thunderbolt are virtually identical electronically, the ports are physically different shapes.

Being an imac user I lost the plot over what Apple are doing on the macbooks. There is a thunderbold 2 to thunderbolt 3 adaptor, but I don think I will buy it just on the off chance it might work on your macbook :)

Toying whether to brig the SWTPC along, but might need a bigger table! Certianly not bringing the 8inch Dual floppies weighs a ton.

I can bring an old Projector along - it's a Panasonic AE100E. It's not very bright, but it will be better than nothing.

I'm aiming to be there mid afternoon (around 3ish....)

Brilliant! We should have all we need.

Roland - what system do you want to use for the video link? I prefer FaceTime if you have a Mac your end. Otherwise I can try to set up Skype, but it isn't something I have used before.

Google hangouts is not bad, then other parties can join in as well, if there is any interest.

I wonder if someone who has not left yet could bring along a 9-pin Atari style Joystick (switched)

I forgot to pack mine #-o

Many thanks and a Beer will be waiting!

Sorry I couldn't make it. I already needed to be in two different places this weekend, trying to be in three places at once would have been stretching it.

Having a really bad journey up from Cornwall. Too many emmets trying to get back home after half term. ☹️

How long will we have access to the room tonight? Debating whether to just turn up early tomorrow rather than set up tonight.

Everything packed in boxes for earlish start tomorrow. Probably get there around 10.

Decided as only coming for one day to leave the SWTPC 6800, Oscilloscope, EPROM Programmer, EPROM Erase and kitchen sink at home. Never going to get it all in the car. Have more than enough soldering to be getting on with. Not sure how only doing soldering I filled 3 large plastic boxes with stuff.

See you all tomorrow. I shall wear my tshirt with my name on it, only time my wife lets me.

Edit: Anything any one else forgot that I need to bring (preferrably small)?

Definitely useful Friday afternoon. Great to put some more faces to names.

Many thanks to Dave H who's eyes lit up at my untested (and as it turns out faulty) Elk & hoglet. Diagnosed as a likely duff CPU. I removed the CPU tonight and socketed a different one - it now has clock (phi1O & phi2O) and activity on the CPU pins. Old CPU back - totally dead. Tomorrow to reassemble it and see if it actually works!
