Is it just me, or has this (Vintage Computers) section become considerably more active since the RCF at Cambridge a couple of weeks ago? Certainly several recent threads concern things which were seen there.

There seems to be lots of MK14 activity here - all the PET threads seem to have gone to the other place though.

They have a very good PET crew over there - how they manage to juggle 6-7 PET repair cases at a time I don't know but I am happy to let them try.

Yes, I think seeing at the RCF all the great work the exhibitors had done getting running / enhancing the rarer more-vintage 1970's early hobbyist etc. computers - and there being so many there - has provided quite a bit of inspiration to revisit these - especially if you happen to have / used quite a few of these yourself....

I don't recall seeing any Commodore PET's (or really that much Commodore) there this time. Maybe they were a little large to have to transport and have space to set-up. But I do have one or two / Main boards from PET's to resurrect one day.
