Happy Valentine's Day, C= and Ami aficionados!
     The Fresno Commodore User Group has its next meeting from 11 a.m. to 2:00+ p.m., Sunday, February 17, at
 
  Bobby Salazar's Mexican Restaurant
  2839 North Blackstone Ave. (corner of Blackstone and Michigan)
  Fresno, California
  (559) 227-1686

     This month we'll talk about the April Commodore Los Angeles Super Show (CLASS), the June Pacific Commodore Expo NW (PaCommEx), and the August Commodore Vegas Expo (CommVEx), plus the other general events, the Livermore Innovation Fair and the Bay Area Maker Faire, both in May.
     Because it is Valentine's Day, we will look at the C64 disk, "Love Letters 1: A Selection of Famous Love Letters for use on Wordwriter", by One Step Software and published by Green Valley Publishing, Inc..  The new Ultimate 64 (http://ultimate64.com) returns for further testing.  This is also the meeting where we try to catch up on those VIC-20, Plus/4, and Amiga items with which we ran out-of-time in previous meetings.
     If you have anything for Ray Carlsen to repair, give it to me, because around March 23 I'll be traveling (again) to his house in the Pacific NW.

          Truly,
          Robert Bernardo

     At the FCUG meeting, the U64 was tested with a Koalapad and its Koalapainter cartridge.  The U64 failed!  It understood when the stylus was pressed against the tablet, but it would not move the cursor lower than midpoint down the screen.  Sad  More testing to be done...
     With the board fitted into a brown C64 case, I don't like that it's only supported by 3 screws.  Therefore, I have taken member Bogdan's advice and have ordered 3-D printed brackets which will firmly hold onto the U64.  I got them from CoreI64, specifically on this page -

     The band, Quarterflash, is having its last, official concert on March 23 in Portland, Oregon.  After 50+ years of making music as Seafood Mama and then Quarterflash, founding duo, Marv and Rindy Ross, want to pull back.  They assure their fans that they will still do small duets around the area but not big productions anymore.

          Having bought my ticket for the last concert,

I'm so encouraged by the improved ride (and seemingly improved braking) that I will gather more points at Autozone so I can get a $20 discount for a pair of front shock absorbers.
     I couldn't wait to gather points, so I went to Amazon.com, found the same shock absorbers (for a slightly cheaper price than the Autozone discounted ones), and ordered the shocks.  They should arrive by the 15th, and then I'll have them installed.

          Little by little,

From LMCTruck.com, I order a couple of wheel caps, an owner's manual, a fender brace, and a glovebox screw.  $65!  That should arrive next week.  From Autozone, I ordered a pair of Gabriel Ultra rear shock absorbers...
     Wheel caps and rear shock absorbers installed.  The caps were relatively easy, but installation of the shock absorbers was out of my league... too many rust-frozen nuts and bolts on the old mounts of the old shocks.  I brought it to the nearby tire shop where they doused the nuts/bolts with rust penetrant and got an impact wrench on them.  With the new rear shocks on, the truck doesn't have the forward-and-backward pitching anymore.  I'm so encouraged by the improved ride (and seemingly improved braking) that I will gather more points at Autozone so I can get a $20 discount for a pair of front shock absorbers.

     Today when I met with Larry Anderson, webmaster of Portcommodore.com, he fixed up the front page of the SCCAN website in order to give it a more cohesive look.  Check it out at http://www.portcommodore.com/sccan

          And hinted how I can improve the Members' page,
