Intel Corporation donated a Hyperthreading Technology motherboard and Pentium 4, 3+ Gigahertz processor to NCTCUG. Scenes from a meeting during which various drivers, anti-virus and anti-spam software was loaded on the machine. This computer will be available for members to borrow between meetings to become acquainted with HT technology.

Electronic Technology from 1946 was introduced to the members. A radio receiver from the Secret Service's presidential detail was displayed, used during the latter part of WWII. This single frequency, crystal controlled receiver used miniature tubes of the type developed for artillery shell proximity fuzes. Also shown was a hand-held metal detector, the predecessor for today's airport scanning wands.
