Greetings Programs,

Been a decade since I've said that.  Who remembers what movie that comes from?
     Would that be Tron?  Smiley

Happy 4th of July, C= and Ami aficionados!
     The Fresno Commodore User Group has its next meeting from 11 a.m. to 1:00+ p.m., Sunday, July 18, at

     Panera Bread Restaurant
     3590 W Shaw Ave. (corner of W. Shaw Ave. and Marty Ave.)
     Fresno, CA 93711
     (559) 271-0104
     http://www.dickestel.com/meet_loc.htm

     This will be our first meeting since November!  I strongly recommend that all attendees come to the meeting fully vaccinated!
     For discussion we'll be talking about what our activities since last November, the October Amiwest Show, and especially the November Commodore Los Angeles Super Show!
     We'll be concentrating on lots of new C= software -- the latest for the C64, VIC-20, and Plus/4.  Also we'll look at classics, like CAD-M from Loadstar disk magazine 150.  We'll even try to create a rotating 3-D logo with CAD-M (especially fun at 48 MHz. on an Ultimate 64!).
     The Amiga 600 will appear with the classic Deluxe Music Construction Set ready to play from the hard drive.

          Truly,
          Robert Bernardo

     Just a reminder that the SCCAN meeting is next Saturday! Member Jeff is going to bring his s-video modded VIC-20 so we can see how he did the mod.

Happy 4th of July, C= and Ami comrades!
     The next meeting of the Southern California Commodore & Amiga Network is Saturday, July 10, from 2 to 5+ p.m. at

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

     For discussion we'll talk about our activities during our long absence due to the pandemic.  Also we'll talk about the Nov. 6-7 Commodore Los Angeles Super Show to be held at the Burbank VFW Hall. Share any ideas you have for this year's CLASS!  And that's not forgetting about the Oct. 16-17 Amiwest Show in Sacramento!
     I'll be bringing in the Ultimate 64, loaded with over a year's worth of new C64 programs and a few classic oldies.  We'll look at an untested A570 CD-drive along with its RAM expansion and SCSI adapter. We'll examine the SD Drive Z2 from Irix Labs.
     Also free for anyone to have, there will be LCD VGA monitors and classic, commercial Amiga software.
     If you have any Commodore hardware that needs repair, I will be visiting Ray Carlsen in late September or in October; I can pick up your equipment and transport it to him for repair.
     Feel free to bring any other hardware/software that you wish to show off!  And you are strongly recommended to be fully vaccinated before coming to the meeting!

          Sincerely,
          Robert Bernardo

P.S. My thanks to member Mario for scouting out Panera Bread Restaurant in order to see if it was o.k. in these post-Covid restriction times.

Among the various platforms, CBM computers that are covered are the PET 2001, VIC-20, C64, and the Amiga.

          Leaving out other CBM computers,

     New, chrome, rear step bumper installed, replacing the old, galvanized, rusty step bumper.  Wow, what a difference!  Shiny bling on the old truck!  Smiley
     Also I went to Street Rods Plus in Lodi, CA, and because they are the Vintage Air dealer/installer, I paid the big money for a custom Vintage Air system for the truck.  The parts (a.c. condenser, compressor, etc) are supposed to come in 6-8 weeks.  Then when they do come in, I will have Street Rods Plus install the system.

          More big money for the installation,

Hi All,

We're back!  TOGA meetings to resume in June!
Hope everyone is doing well and has received their Covid-19 vaccine.

We will be meeting at Mountain Mikes Pizza (The one on Branham Lane in San Jose). I called them and told them we were planning to meet there.

Lunch will be at 11:30am followed by the meeting around 12:30. I'm planning to bring my The C64 Full sized Commodore 64 clone computer. I've got 3D printed things to give away.

Lunch (Pizza & Soda) is around $7 per person if you go in with the club.

Mountain Mikes Pizza
