Yow! Go for it! I'm proud to announce that the first 2 parts of the
Vintage Computer Festival East 4.0, starring CBM engineers Chuck
Peddle, Bil Herd, Dave Haynie, Bob Russell, and a slew of admirers,
is now up at Just type in the search for
hazydave and then look for VCF East 4.0 1/4 and VCF East 4.0 2/4.
Dave Haynie, master video and audio editor, has combined his and
my video footage to recreate this historic gathering of CBM talent.

Here is part of what Dave had to say:


I'm starting to upload the VCF stuff to my YouTube "channel"
(channel "hazydave"). I broke it up into four parts, roughly 1/2 hour
each, to get around the 100MB upload limits on YouTube.

I'm also working on a very basic DVD... I rendered it yesterday,
but it came out a tad too large to fit on a DVD5, so I'm re-rendering at
a slightly lower bitrate.


I used as much of my video as I had, mainly because your camera
had some weird sync effect ... maybe CCD vs. CMOS, I don't know. I did
have another tape from my "pocket" camcorder, but you had better
preliminary video, so I used that, and a tiny bit of coverage during the
interview when I had to change tapes.


Thing is, this is a VERY cool interview... best one yet, far as
I'm concerned. Mr. Peddle pretty much confirmed everything I had heard
in story/legend around Commodore -- he is the true inventor of the
personal computer, as it came to be. Everyone else, from Apple to IBM,
just followed. That's a story that needs to be told again... it's so
easy for the winners to claim it all.. and that would annoy me even if I
didn't have problems with Apple.
