Don't forget to visit the Computer Game Museum:

Also come down to Munich to visit the German Museum (which has some
Cray and some Babbage and so on) and more important: Cray Cyber,
if you're really into OLD hardware.

> Where: Deutsches Technikmuseum Berlin
> When: January 3rd at Noon
> Directions: You can take the U2 from Alexanderplatz to Gleisdreieck
> station which is right next to the museum.
> Cost: It's 6 Euros per person but if we have 10 or more it's 4 Euros.
> Interesting exhibits include a reproduction of the Z1 by Konrad Zuse

> Another neat exhibit is the Cessna flown by German Mathis Rust who in

> Defense from their post.
> If your still in town this is a great place to visit before you head
