Merry Christmas, C= and Ami aficionados!
     The Fresno Commodore User Group has its next meeting from 11 a.m. to 2:00+ p.m., Sunday, Dec. 15, 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

     The main topic of discussion will be the Downtown Los Angeles Mini-Maker Faire which was last Saturday.  Also we'll have the election of officers and the vote for a charitable donation.
     In hardware, we'll look at a newly-acquired 1541 Ultimate card drive, the Lotharek 6502Plus4 replacement board for the Plus/4, and the VIC-2066 -- the 35K switchable RAM expander with integrated SD2IEC from Jason Micari of Australia (presentation delayed from a previous meeting).  We'll also talk about the latest progress on the Mega65 (clone of the C65 computer).
     In software, we didn't get to finish with all of the recent game releases for the C64, VIC-20, and Plus/4 at the November meeting, and so, this time we'll try to catch up, along with new releases, Frostbite for the C64 and Donkey Kong Jr. for the VIC-20.  The Amiga 3000 returns with its hard drive full of classic software.

    Whoa!  Paypal donations are now being accepted for the steel molds to create Mega65 computer cases.  They must gather 66,000 Euros ($72,934 US) in order to manufacture the molds.  See

Hi there,

I have available now my BackBit cartridge for Commodore 64 & 128. It's a multi-function cartridge that operates with a Micro-SD card.

For more details, check out http://backbit.io

Thanks!

All wheels/tires have been replaced on the truck, and that includes the spare.
     Sadness!  I was driving the Chevy at 10:30 p.m. just to warm up the engine and keep it up to snuff.  I was headed south on south El Dorado Street which is on the outskirts of Stockton.  The middle of nowhere!  I then heard a loud whoosh of air and felt the truck slowing down and start shaking.  Uh-oh, flat tire?!  I pulled over under the street light of one of the few houses on the street.  Too dark to see exactly but the right rear tire looked like a goner.  I was without my cell phone, and so, I made the 3-mile walk back to my parents' house, walking fast just in case any strangers/homeless people jumped out of the dark at me.  I made it back home with only one guy walking through the park near the house saying, "Do you have any matches? Cigarettes?" Still walking fast, I replied brusquely, "No matches. No cigarettes."
     The next day I drove over to the Chevy by using my mother's Buick.  There was a huge sidewall split on the right rear Sears tire.  And the tire hadn't even had 150 miles on it.  There was no warranty on the tire.  I had the truck towed back to my parents' house and removed the wheel that night, brought it over to WalMart the next day, and had them install a no-name Dexteros tire.  $127 but this time with a road hazard warranty.  I put that on the truck that night.
     The question is will the other Sears tire on the left rear fail, too?

          There's always something,

I washed the truck yesterday and polished up the chrome.
    After 2 days, there's a layer of dust on it again.  Sad  Well, I've washed the tires with Armor All Wheel & Tire Cleaner (highly recommended!), which removed a lot of grime, and then sprayed the rubber with Turtle Wax Tire Shine.

Time to get it back on the road!
    Though the truck had not been started in quite some time, the battery kicked the starter over!  It's great to have an AGM battery (Sears Diehard Platinum, in this case) that holds the charge for months without requiring a trickle charger!  I put in some fresh, premium gas and drove her around a few miles.  Unfortunately, the gas gauge is not registering any fuel in the tank!  And I had the fueling sending unit replaced several years ago.  Not another replacement needed...

     Just received a new dash panel to go around the instrumentation on the Chevy truck.  The old panel was cracked and dull.  The new one is wood-grain!  Hey, it was the same expensive price as the a replacement black one, and I thought a little more bling would be appropriate to the dull truck interior.  The new one gives a more upscale impression.
     The clear plastic that covers the instruments is still dull, but a new, more transparent plastic will be ordered in a few days.  (Right now, with the dull one, you can't even read the speedometer at night with the lights on.)
