The Fresno Commodore User Group has its next meeting from 11 a.m. to 2+ p.m., Sunday, May 24 at --
Bobby Salazar's Mexican Restaurant
2839 North Blackstone Ave. (corner of Blackstone and Michigan)
Once again we'll discuss the July 18-19 Commodore Vegas Expo, now with the addition of special guests Leonard Tramiel, son of CBM's Jack Tramiel; and Mike Battilana of Cloanto's C64 Forever and Amiga Forever. Also we'll discuss last weekend's Maker Faire 2015 and the July 25-26 Amiga 30th Anniversary celebration in California. I'll provide a brief report on Commodore and Amiga at Maker Faire, along with pictures and a short video.
For the third month in a row, we continue our celebration of the 30th anniversary of the C128. We'll look at some C128 and C64 video from the classic Computer Chronicles television show. Then we'll look through Basic 8 and IPaint C128 graphics, courtesy of the GEnie Commodore File Library at CBMFiles.com. Not forgetting Geopaint 128 graphics, we'll boot up Geopaint 128 to look at its abilities.
In other business, we'll listen to MP3 music streaming from the MP3@C64 module on the MMC64 cartridge. We'll play with the Amiga CDTV and games Wrath of the Demon, Lemmings, and Defender of the Crown II. Member Vincent will bring his VIC-20, and I'll bring Peter Hanson's expanded Plus/4 again.
Commodore life is good,
