Events   Events : Commodore and Amiga at Bay Area Maker Faire 2017
   posted by RobertB on 26-Apr-2017 3:44:57 (1197 reads)
Once again there will be a Classic Computers’ exhibit at Maker Faire Bay Area 2017! Once again my fellow exhibitors and I will be displaying classic personal computers for fairgoers to enjoy. To celebrate its 35th anniversary, I'll be bringing in a Commodore 64 with JiffyDOS (or RAMLink with JiffyDOS), 1541 or 1571 drive, and SD2IEC card drive. To celebrate its 30th anniversary, I’ll have an Amiga 2000 with a Blizzard 2060 50 MHz board, Amiga OS 3.1, 128 megs of Fast RAM, 2 megs of Chip RAM, SCSI CD-ROM drive, SCSI controller board with 8 megs of RAM, NewTek Video Toaster, Digital Processing Systems Personal TBC, A2065 Ethernet card, Digital Processing Systems Personal Animation Recorder (PAR), 4 gig SCSI main hard drive, and 500 meg SCSI hard drive for the PAR. Also because of attendee demand, I’m bringing back the Texas Instruments TI-99 4/A with Peripheral Expansion Box, various cards, and various cartridges, including the new SD card cartridge.



The other Classic Computer exhibitors will be bringing in their machines, like the Commodore PET 2001, Tandy, and Apple II (to celebrate the 40th anniversary of these computers), Apple IIGS, Altair, and various Ataris.

These are the dates and times for Maker Faire 2017 -

Friday, May 19: 1 pm - 5 pm

Saturday, May 20: 10 am - 7 pm

Sunday, May 21: 10 am - 6 pm

Location: San Mateo County Event Center, 1346 Saratoga Dr., San Mateo, California, USA

100,000 fairgoers come to Maker Faire, and hundreds will be walking through our Classic Computers' exhibit! You, too, can be at Maker Faire 2017!

Truly,
