The Commodore Vegas Expo, a.k.a. CommVEx, is less than 85 days away! July 24 and 25 are coming 'round the corner! To celebrate this fifth year of the show and the 25th anniversary of the Commodore Plus/4 and Commodore 16 computers, we are making the event extra-special this time. Our headliner is CBM engineer, Dave Haynie, who has worked on the Plus/4, Commodore 128, and Amiga computers. Come on in and meet Dave, ask your questions, listen to his CBM behind-the-scene anecdotes, and get his autograph.


Not only is Dave Haynie attending the show but CommVEx friend and CBM engineer Bil Herd has arranged an interview with Chuck Peddle, CBM engineer and father of the personal computer. The details are still being worked out at this time, but the Chuck Peddle interview could be a pre-recorded video/Skype chat or a live telephone call-in to CommVEx.

Gracing the CommVEx room again will be Newtek engineer Jeri Ellsworth, who will apprise us of her Commodore and non-Commodore projects.
