I've been told that if on Friday (Nov. 5) the hall is not reserved, we can use that day to set up our stuff! No extra charge!

David A. Freeman, 1958-2020

Dave Freeman was my go-to guy at the Living Computers: Museum + Labs. Whenever I had a hardware problem -- missing cable, shortage of power strips, lack of extension cords, wrong monitor, or wrong cable connectors -- he was there to solve the problem, always with a smile and a can-do attitude. He ne...

Re: Toolbox LA closes! Search for new CLASS venue!

So far, California State University Northridge is in the running for its meeting space. Pierce College is out because of a 4-hour time limit. I may take a cue from the Amiwest Show and look for a meeting space in a hotel (Amiwest uses a Holiday Inn Express).

Re: Toolbox LA closes! Search for new CLASS venue!

I am narrowing the search for the new venue. It looks like the best area would be around Northridge, California.
