Happy Thanksgiving, C= and Ami comrades!
     The next meeting of the Southern California Commodore & Amiga Network is Saturday, Nov. 9, from 2 to 5+ p.m. at

  Panera Bread Restaurant
  19662 Nordhoff Street
  Northridge, California
  (818) 407-9400

     We'll be talking about the recent Amiwest Show in Sacramento and the upcoming December 7 Downtown Los Angeles Mini-Maker Faire where we will have a table or two under the name of "Classic Los Angeles Computers!".
     The usual Commodore gear that we run at the meeting will not present  this time, because my car will be full of equipment from another haul, a haul that members can look through.
     However, the Ultimate 64 will be present, this time updated with v1.24!    Due to most of last month's meeting being devoted to looking over donated gear, we did not have time to play Archon.  We'll have it running this month!  And if Mario brings his Amiga 1000, we can have Archon running on the Amiga, too.
     Feel free to bring in any hardware or software you want to exhibit or discuss!

Happy Halloween, C= and Ami aficionados!
     The Fresno Commodore User Group has its annual picnic lunch from 11 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Sunday, October 20 at  --

     HomeTown Buffet
     3617 W. Shaw Ave. (across the street from our usual Panera Bread venue)
     Fresno, California
     (559) 271-1927

Because it is our picnic lunch, all club members and their families will have their meal paid by the club.  We'll eat, drink, and be merry, and not necessarily talk about computers!  Smiley

     I want to thank all the members who showed up at the September meeting.  Though Bogdan was not there, all of you guys made up for him being missing.  And it was great for everybody to share remembrances of him.  Thanks for clearing the station wagon of some of the Commodore/Amiga stuff.  The plan is to bring more Commodore/Amiga stuff for the November meeting, and you can grab what you wish.

          Sincerely,
          Robert Bernardo

P.S. The SC3 Arcade Party is happening in Claremont on that same day, but I will be at the SCCAN meeting in Northridge.

I took it to Hewitt Alignment for an inspection, and they say that the front brakes will have to be redone.  At the end of the month, I plan to take the truck into Pep Boys for that.
     Well, it took longer than the end of the month, but I finally had the front brakes rebuilt!  Back in 2015, I had the rear brakes done at Pep Boys and I thought they could repair the truck again.  Wrong!  When I brought the truck in and had it inspected, the service manager started making excuses, like parts were not in their catalog, they'd have to tie up a bay waiting days for parts, the parts they would get were not assured to fit and would have to be returned, thus using up more time.  In other words, he refused to work on the truck!
     So, I went to Stockton Autocare.  They had the truck ready in one day!!!  Both front calipers replaced (the original left one was frozen), new pads installed, rotors reground, and the left front brake hose replaced (the original was plugged).  Two hours of labor at $85 per hour.  $208 in parts.  What was difficult about that, Pep Boys?!
     Power brake booster still needs to be replaced; the original has power braking on the first brake press but loses power with an immediate, consecutive brake press.  (Vacuum has to build up.)  With flood insurance to pay in November and property tax to pay in December, I've delayed the $300 fix for that until January.

P.S. When the 1990 Crown Vic had its fuel pump fail just outside of Stockton, I had it towed into Pep Boys,  Again the service manager starting making excuses, saying that his store was just a training facility, that the mechanics wouldn't be able to diagnose, etc..  That did it.  I told him that I'm never coming to Pep Boys again, brought my car to Stockton Autocare, and had the fuel pump repaired in a day.
