Miscellaneous News   Miscellaneous News : Video of programmer Jim Butterfield
   posted by RobertB on 18-Dec-2007 19:53:26 (2464 reads)
Video of the late Jim Butterfield at the LUCKI Expo 2005 has now been posted to
the Net! This is the same video that was shown at the Commodore Vegas Expo v3
(2007), at the Vintage Computer Festival X, and at the World of Commodore Expo
2007. The video is available for download (thanks, Ian) in Quicktime, Windows
Media, and Real Player formats. You can download a section of the video or the
complete 45-minute video. Here is what Ian Matthews of had to say --

"I have created a large selection of options for those who are interested in seeing the
mighty Jim. See the bottom of:

Note that the large files are marked in bold and you would be wise to right click on
them and select SAVE TARGET AS and save them to your desktop rather than
attempting to play them through your browser."

there, too,

Thanks Robert for this link.
This brings me back 25 years, when I purchased my very first computer.
Yes, it was a Commodore 64 and the following years, Jim became my guru.
I used to watch is program "Bits and Bytes" on TV Ontario.

While rummaging around various Beta, VHS, Digital 8, and DV tapes, I came across a VHS tape that was given to me. Its label was printed, "Chicago Commodore Expo, October 24, 1998 - Jim Butterfield Tells a Commodore Story". I viewed the tape, and though the video quality is only fair, the audio is good, and of course, Jim tells a good story of the early days of Commodore.

That 16-minute video has now been posted! Go to

Thanks to BIOS for the upload,
