     Some people collect stamps, baseball cards, dolls and even cars -
but, did you know that there is a group for people who collect computers!
The Historical Computer Society is an international user group for old
computer enthusiasts ("old computers" and/or "old enthusiasts"). Issue #9
of "Historically Brewed" is now out and shipping! Our biggest and I think
overall best issue yet. It contains an exclusive interview with Ed
Roberts, creator of the MITS Altair computer! Also, the final installment
of the excellent DEC pdp-8 history. "The Internet and Computer History",
"For the Collector", "Remembering Gary Kildall", Collecting home and
arcade video machines, letters, member stories, comics and more!
     The Society is dedicated to preserving older and classic computer
hardware, software and literature while educating and helping it's members
as well as the general public. The Society and it's magazine were started
in the pioneering spirit of the early computer clubs. One of the most
famous groups was the Homebrew Computer Club from the San Francisco Bay
area started in March of 1975. No other single organization helped to
spawn more of today's computer legends than did Homebrew. This is why the
name "Historically Brewed" was chosen for the magazine.
     Computer history nostalgia is now available to all buffs of "antique"
computing everywhere. Many people have fond memories of their early
computing days. Never has another device evolved so rapidly as to produce
nostalgic artifacts in less than a quarter of a century! "Historically
Brewed" is a forum for these people to meet and share their stories.
     The Historical Computer Society intends to become the authority in
the community of retired personal computers. Hundreds of old computers are
thrown out everyday by Americans as junk, but HCS believes that these
outmoded machines have value. HCS can help owners find answers about
system operation, peripherals, software, books, magazines and service.
"Historically Brewed" is ready to become the premier circular for
information, classifieds and trading of outdated equipment, etc. New
subscriptions in the U.S. are only $14 a year or try an issue for only $3;
subscriptions in Canada are $16 and $20 international. HB is sold at The
Computer Museum in Boston, the American Computer Museum in Bozeman,
Montana and at Smithsonian Book Stores, Washington, DC. HCS, 3649 Herschel
Street, Jacksonville, FL 32205. Best, David Greelish, President, HCS
