Happy New Year, C= and Ami aficionados!
The Fresno Commodore User Group has its next meeting from 11 a.m. to 2:00+ p.m., Sunday, Jan. 21 at --
Bobby Salazar's Mexican Restaurant
2839 North Blackstone Ave. (corner of Blackstone and Michigan)
Though Christmas has come and gone, C= "gifts" are still arriving -- more software from John Yaccarine of The Other Group of Amigoids (San Jose) and computer chips from Rolf Miller of the former CIVIC 64/128 club (Ventura). Feel free to grab any and all from the boxes that will be at the meeting.
Just like last month, we'll cover more of the new C= games from BinaryZone.org. Just like last month, the A.L.I.C.E. (A Laptop Incorporating a Classic Experience) laptop will be exhibited with its AmiKit X, Amiga OS 4.1FE, and Windows 10 partitions. Unlike last month, the PET 2001 returns, this time fully functioning (thanks, Ray Carlsen, for the difficult repair). Also the Amiga 1200 returns for those who want some classic Amiga gaming.
Hey, we're not forgetting the Plus/4 and VIC-20. A few weeks late, for the Plus/4 we'll try out the new demos, "Merry Christmas 2017" and "Old Xmas Joke Go PETSCII", and the new game, "Shield Command". For the VIC-20, it's the demo, "HiUxLife" (Life); and music, "Havana", "What Christmas Means to Me", and "Medley".
Plus we'll talk about Maker Faire 2018, the Pacific Commodore Expo 2018, the Commodore Vegas Expo v14 2018, and even the Silicon Valley Comic Con!
