The Old Calculator Museum's Exhibit of Wang Laboratories'
line of electronic calculators at the
Vintage Computer Federation's second annual
Vintage Computer Festival-Pacific Northwest held at the
Living Computer Museum + Labs in Seattle, Washington,
on March 23 & 24, 2019 won the "Most Interesting Presentation" award! Thanks
to everyone who attended the Festival. It was a great time, and it was a lot
of fun showing these old Wang calculators to an interested and appreciative
group of attendees. I'll be back next year with a new exhibit of old
calculators, for sure! And...yes...there will be Nixie Tube calculators.
I would like to thank my wonderful wife, Patty, for making it possible for me to attend this event. I'm currently unemployed due to an unfortunate circumstance, and with money being tight, Patty, who has her own business, has been working very long hours to bring in extra income. Getting there and back, hotel, and meals made for bit of expense. I had strongly considered canceling my exhibit due to the loss of my job, but Patty said to go ahead, and she would figure out a way to make it work. Had it not been for her willingness to support this trip, it never would have happened. Thank you, Patty.
I can't express enough thanks to my dear friend, Mike Weiler, for all of his help with making the museum's exhibit at VCF-PNW possible. There's no way it could have happened without him.
Sincere thanks Michael Brutman of the Vintage Computer Federation for his tireless work in organizing this wonderful event, and also to the Living Computer Museum + Labs and their staff & volunteers for providing the amazing venue for this event.
