I just want to say that this museum is absolutely wonderful. Some of
the smaller items aren't really very well displayed, but there is just
no other place in the world that you can go and see a functioning
panel or crossbar switch and have someone explain to you how it works.
Everyone reading this should make a trip out to Oregon if they haven't
done so already.
