This year is extra special, because Erik Klein of has invited other classic computerists to share his tables. So, in the limited space that has been assigned for each computerist, the Fresno Commodore User Group will have an exhibit - a classic Commodore 64 system and a classic Amiga 2000 system. Not only will we have games running on the systems for all to play, but we will also have the Relax Stress Reduction System for the C64 and the Haitex X Specs 3D Stereoscopic Glasses for the Amiga. Expand your mind with these fun curiosities!

Who knows?! I might be able to squeeze in a modded C64 DTV 30-games-in-one joystick and the Multiple Classic Computer 216 (MCC-216). And in the rest of the table space, Erik and others are bringing in a HP 87 with disk drive and a paper tape punch, a modded Atari 400, a modded Amiga 600, and Apple II hardware.

You can find our Vintage Computers' tables in the Expo Hall. For more information on the program and schedule, how to get there, a map of the venue, go to
