PCjr talk cancelled

Posted by Trixter on April 18, 2013

Our basement flooded due to Illinois floodrains, and we also had some issues regarding our roller scooters so I will not be traveling to notacon; there will be no PCjr talk this weekend.

    egads man… I hope nothing of value was lost in the flood… good luck on the cleanup!

      The damage to the vintage collection was thankfully minimal; the only real casualties were about 50 3.5″ disks I created in my BBS days, 25 boxed Amiga NTSC games :-( and an A3000. The damage to the basement was worse; we lost the carpet and couch, and are hoping to save the walls.

      There are some people in Chicagoland who had their basements fully furnished that are now under 6 feet of water, so I feel fortunate.

    Urgh, that sucks. :-/ Best of luck getting everything under control!
    If you ever find the time, perhaps you could salvage your work towards that PCjr presentation in a different form… something like your AT&T PC6300 retrospective video?

      The PCjr talk has already been rescheduled for the Vintage Computer Festival Midwest (vcfmw.org) in late 2013. The Harlem Shake references will be removed before then ;-)
