Happy hot weather, C= and Ami aficionados!
     The Fresno Commodore User Group has its next meeting from 11 a.m. to 1+ p.m., Sunday, May 18, at  --

   Bobby Salazar's Mexican Restaurant
   2839 North Blackstone Ave. (corner of Blackstone and Michigan)
   Fresno, California

     Courtesy of Tim Harris at Sharewareplus.co.uk, we'll try out the uCassette (microCassette).  As described in its flyer, “The uCassette interface is a device that converts the audio signals from the playback of .WAV files and/or .MP3 to TTL signals…” which are picked up by the cassette port on the Commodore. So, the uCassette is usable by any Commodore computer with a standard cassette port.  Load cassette files without the need of a Datasette!
     For the Commodore 128 in 80-column mode, we'll wade through the large binder of instructions and the program itself, Family Roots from Quinsept.  It is an extremely comprehensive genealogy program, the best I have seen for the Commodore.  Thanks to Justin Jernigan. of the Mid-Atlantic Retro-Computing Hobbyists for donating the program.
     Speaking of MARCH, we'll see some raw footage from their Vintage Computer Festival 9.1 which was held on April 6-8.  Just a taste of that footage... We walk around the VCF East exhibit halls and vending room, Mike Hill tells about his latest version of PETpix, CBM engineer Bil Herd talks about monitor repair, interspersing it with CBM stories; CBM engineer Dave Haynie talks about CBM's latter years, and Zach Weddington shows off clips of his upcoming Amiga film, Viva Amiga (o.k., maybe part 2 of all of this for the June FCUG meeting).
     Last but not least, we'll go through the process of installing the 256 meg ZorRAM memory board into an Amiga 3000 computer.

          All that and talk of the July 27-27
          Commodore Vegas Expo v10,
