Led by Erik Klein, the Vintage Computer Friends (classic computers) booth was once again at the giant Bay Area Maker Faire, held on May 17-19 in San Mateo (San Francisco area), California.  This year the booth was pushed to the back of the Expo Hall, instead of our usual central location.  This year we had less table space, and consequently, less computers to exhibit.  However, we still had hundreds coming through to see, to reminisce, and to discover the old and the new.
