Be aware that this Sunday we move the clocks forward one hour for Daylight Savings Time. Thus, our 11 a.m. time is 11 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time.
This month is our "catch-up" meeting, that is, it's the meeting in which get to the software and/or hardware we did not get to in previous meetings. That's not to say that we don't have some new/newish items to go over. We'll have the new epsilon version of Robert Willie's SAM 128 to try out with the SuperCPU 128. Then for the C64, we'll have the RGCD.co.uk game cartridge, Bomberland, and the new Slime 64 Deluxe. Also, member Louis may have a presentation on his ZoomFloppy device for transferring disk images between a PC and a C= drive. For the classic Amiga, we'll have some homebrew games, demos, and simulations. For the VIC-20 and Plus/4 I'll have an update on how Ray Carlsen is modding those machines. We'll have an update on how we are going spread the word of Commodore at the March 18-20 Silicon Valley Comic Con in San Jose.
Once again our C64 background chipmusic comes from 8-Bit Weapon's latest album, "Disassembly Language: Ambient Music for Deprogramming". Once again we'll watch newly-released video documentary, "Growing the 8-Bit Generation" -- this time part 2.
