July 10, 2013 · Comments Off on Correction to June 2013 Dumplings

On page 18 of the June 2013 issue of Juiced.GS, we reported:

Rounding out the convention circuit this quarter is the Vintage Computer Festival Southwest 3.0. Visit Arlington, Texas, this August 4–5 for exhibits and presentations on a variety of older computers. Tickets are $10 for one day or $15 for both; no pre-registration is required.

This story is incorrect. When looking for news items for our "DumplinGS" section, we visited the homepage of VCF Southwest and saw this announcement: "We will hold the Vintage Computer Festival Southwest 3.0 at UT Arlington, August 4th and 5th." We assumed the future tense to mean the event would be held in 2013; we neglected to do our due diligence and scroll to the bottom of the page, where we would've seen, "Last page change July 16, 2012".

VCF Southwest 3.0 was held in August 2012; there are no plans for the event to recur in 2013.

We humbly apologize for this error in our reporting and promise to do better fact-checking in the future.
