[Bay Area] Computer History Museum

This Sunday, pabw and I are heading to the Computer History Museum in Mountain View to see the recently completed replica of the Babbage Difference Engine. There are several other neat, old bits of equipment on display, including core memory hanging from the ceiling and the teapot.

Anyone interested in joining us? We'll probably try to do lunch downtown sometime around noon and head to the museum at 2 or so.
