Vintage Computer Federation is pleased to announce an expansion of the Vintage Computer Festival series to the Pacific Northwest.
The first VCF PNW will be held at Living Computers: Museum + Labs in Seattle, Washington on February 10-11, 2018. Seattle is a rich and vibrant tech hub with beautiful scenery and every variety of rain possible, but it has been missing the Vintage Computer Festival experience. With the cooperation of the LCM+L we are fixing that by providing a weekend full of interesting exhibits and even more interesting people in what is already a great destination.
In the next few weeks we will put out more formal calls for exhibitors, volunteers, and speakers. If you would like to chat feel free to reach out to me at email@example.com.
Vintage Computer Federation is a national user group serving collectors, hobbyists, and anyone interested in the history of computing. More information about the Vintage Computer Federation can be found at vcfed.org. Living Computers: Museum + Labs provides a one-of-a-kind, hands-on experience with computer technology from the 1960s to the present. The LCM+L is online at livingcomputers.org.

I came across this article about ROMBO the add on board found in some Osborne computers. I had to smile because I designed the ROMBO board along with a friend who wrote the patch to make it work. I sold them through Worswick Industries. It was an interesting yet short lived product because of the Osborne bankruptcy. I always wondered if there were still any ROMBO boards out there.
