We took a break in 2013 when running the UnPDNS would have required us to wake up before 7am. Now that the PDNS is back in the evening, we're back for 2014. Woo.

If you dont know about old computers but want to learn, please come along too!
  
* '''When:''' Thursday night (when the PDNS is on).
+
For those wondering about the definition of 'old', we mean pretty much anything first released before Windows95 or had an actual floppy disk...
* '''Where:''' Site 5, Matilda Bay Reserve, right next to the University. See [http://www.dec.wa.gov.au/images/stories/parks/key_attractions/mb_reserve_map_2010_2.jpg this map] for info.
+
* '''What:''' A BBQ (to be confirmed). Food will be $5, and we'll be selling various soft drinks. Alcohol is '''strictly BYO only'''; selling alcohol is in contravention of Western Australia liquor licensing laws.

There seems to be a thread drifting along on the chat list as well
  
Add your name so we can figure out how much food to buy. If you're a vegetarian or vegan, add a '''(V)''', so we know how much vegetarian stuff to buy.

Revision as of 17:41, 9 January 2014

Suggestions for a BoF session about old computers or software. If you know what a 6502 Z80 1541 1802 2764 4164 5.25" 68000 CPM PDP actually mean you qualify for the bof, but anyone who wants to discuss anything retro computer related is welcome!

If you dont know about old computers but want to learn, please come along too!

For those wondering about the definition of 'old', we mean pretty much anything first released before Windows95 or had an actual floppy disk...

There seems to be a thread drifting along on the chat list as well
