Next SCCAN meeting - Saturday, May 13
Date 6-May-2017 18:38:33
|Happy Mother's Day, C= and Ami comrades!|
The next meeting of the Southern California Commodore & Amiga Network is Saturday, May 13, from 2 to 5+ p.m. at
Panera Bread Restaurant
19662 Nordhoff Street
We may have a visitor at our meeting -- Jeff B. who wants to convert "text on disks in the Amiga format to Mac readable text, as well as to do the same with some MIDI music files" and also "several Deluxe Paint animations and images...".
Hopefully, Mario will be bringing in his C128DCR and/or his Amiga 1000. I'll have the usual SX-64, Plus/4, Amiga 1200, and AmigaOne G4. I'll be bringing in the JiffyDOS'ed VIC-20 with the fully-assembled Final Expansion 3 Rev. 11 and also the Behr-Bonz cart with its 127 games. For the last few years, we've been using a relatively simple Amiga RGB-to-VGA adapter to connect to the BenQ multi-scan monitor; this time from the same manufacturer, Pavel Vrebec of the Czech Republic, we'll inspect some new, more sophisticated Amiga RGB-to-VGA cables.
Our meeting will be a few days before the Bay Area Maker Faire, and we'll talk about that as well as the June 10-11 Pacific Commodore Expo NW and the July 29-30 Commodore Vegas Expo.
Because I'm going to the Pacific Commodore Expo NW, I'll be passing by Ray Carlsen's place on the way to and from Seattle, so if you have any Commodore 8-bit hardware that needs repair, bring it to the meeting, and I'll give it to Ray to fix.
As always, bring any Commodore or Amiga items you wish to share!
