"I can't do that, Dave."

Charlottesville and Silicon Valley are not really names you'd link often as technology hubs, but UVA has a Computer museum that many on the left coast would find intriguing.

Located in the 5th floor atrium of Rice Hall at the University of Virginia, the museum contains computer-related artifacts that are both historical and modern. The displays come from the personal collections of faculty members and other donors, and include early Burroughs machines, vacuum tubes, keypunch cards, and even those 8" floppy discs of our youth.

So take your children, or even grandchildren, to this unique museum, and be sure to include your stories about walking to school, uphill, in the snow, both ways as you wander about.
