The Computer Graphics Museum has changed hosting providers to XMission, Utah’s largest independent internet service provider. Our new provider gives us improved access to our hosting environment allowing us to work on providing better services going forward.
Things have been proceeding behind the scenes, but difficulties with our hosting environment prevented us from sharing those efforts with you. Obviously, we are back to sharing news again!
One of the next big projects for the museum is to create a searchable catalog of artifacts in the museum’s collection. This will be easier to prototype and deploy with the improved access.
One year after it’s initial creation, the Terminals Wiki has basic data for approximately 550 different terminals.
SuperComputing 2012 is being held in Salt Lake City this week. Conference attendees are welcome to stop by the museum during the public free night meeting of MakeSLC on Wednesday November 12th, from 7pm to 10pm. MakeSLC shares the warehouse space that houses the museum’s collection. The museum is located at 653 S. State Street, next door to The Bayou.
A work log has been added to the site. Work on the museum progresses every week, but it’s not always something as exciting as acquisition of an important piece of hardware or writing a nice article for the blog. Most of the time, it’s just plain work. So I’ve created a work log to record the efforts in order to gain a little more visibility into what’s going on at the museum.
A gallery page showing pictures of the collection has been added to the main bar above every post on the blog. Click through the thumbnails to see large detailed pictures of the museum’s collection of hardware.
Things are getting organized down at the museum and soon I’ll be able to post some pictures of things as they stand. Moving everything to our new location in October was quite an ordeal and it’s only now that things are nearing completion as an organized display of the collection and not just a bunch of items in storage.
Welcome to the new home of the Computer Graphics Museum!
With server space graciously provided by Jay West, we now have a new home for the Computer Graphcis Museum on the web. We’re starting out with a simple blog to report news about the museum and articles on the history of computer graphics.
