#12 Video: MacTruck Computer Weekend, U-M, February 7th & 8th, 1987

This video isn't really about MTS, but the Mac Truckload Sale was an activity of the
Micro Group within the U-M Computing Center, so you'll see lots of faces you may
recognize in the video. Many people from Apple, from throughout U-M's Information
Technology Division, from U-M Purchasing, from other U-M units, family, and friends
volunteered (or were pressed into service).
