The car repair in fact made it in time and thus I was able to bring all my equiment to that electronics fair.

To my surprise, when I arrived at the exhibition hall, no one was there, some of the others had already dumped their machines on the table but noone was around. But after a few moments of standing around puzzled, Ernst arrived, and shortly later Igor and a friend of his, and we got busy removing the protective plastic wrap from the floor carpet. (note: it is not a good idea to have tables standing around and computers chained to that tables when you still need to clear the floor.) and got hooked up for power and network from the MausNet people who have the booth on the back side of ours. And I even managed to convince my serial terminal to talk to the DECstation (turns out it wanted a null-modem cable. Huh?)
Then went to work, so I don't have to go there tomorrow. Just to find my boss telling me that I'm now responsible for about twenty more machines. Ugh.
