In researching my earlier post on the Ideas BBS, I went looking for its inception date and phone number in my copies of old Tac2 newsletters. On browsing the May 1982 issue I was reminded that I served as it’s chairman for a handful of years … in the mid eighties. That was a whole lot of fun!

The Transvaal Amateur Computer Club (Tac2) met at The University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) in the basement of Senate House — usually on the first Wednesday of each month at 7.30pm. After our meeting a bunch of us would typically retire to all night cafés Wien or Zurich in Hillbrow.
