Vintage Computer MARK 8 sent to MARCH in Wall NJ

Hi - The MARK 8 computer  I sent to the 'Mid-Atlantic Retro Computing Hobbyist' ( MARCH ) in Wall , NJ arrived yesterday 2-25-13. I am glad to loan it to them from our 'Bugbook Historical Microcomputer Museum' here in Floyd Virginia. I do hope it will be a display that folks like.  Some of the members of MARCH are planning on restoring the computer to working order and putting in a nice display case so the MARK 8 cards are viewable.

Here is a video of the MARK 8 August 5,2013 short demonstration Mark 8 Minicomputer at Mid-Atlantic Retro Workshop 



Here is a telephone conversation with George Overfelt about the MARK 8 and other computer topics 8-15-13 - Nice that George is still active at his age - We chat now and then by phone about this MARK 8 computer he built 37 years ago in 1976 - This added 8-15-13 


Here is one of my first interviews 1-28-13 with George Overfelt 25 years after we acquired the MARK8 from him. Added here 8-22-13

Evan Koblentz president of the MARCH group has already been in contact with Jon Titus ( The designer of the MARK 8 ) and he has offered to help as he can.  We are delighted to have this computer in the MARCH museum .

It is cold, windy, lots of ice and not a nice day.
