My return to Classic Cmp - San Diego, software archive, etc.

Over the past four years I've been taking the digests, pulling down the archives and saving them, in the hope that I'd find time to read and perhaps participate. Never found time.
Gotta get this out of the way first: some of you may recall that I was Don Maslin's friend, that I promised to rescue the software archive, and that his widow made that impossible. A mutual friend queried me about this recently, and I have to say that so far as I know, Don's archive rests in his garage, untouched. SAD!!!
This year I lost another computer addict friend who participated in the early days of the Z80 (and before that as one of the Non-Linear Systems bright lights) - Bill Bailey. Our Old Farts group is getting smaller.
I wonder - are there any warm bodies here in San Diego still interested in the old computers we created over 30 years ago? If so, I'd sure like to talk with them. Perhaps reconstitute the Dina-SIG I founded some 20+ years ago as a local activity for celebration of the early personal computer, idea and information exchange, and good fellowship over good beer!
Anyway, I intend to try to drop in here daily and join in the daily conversations.
