     After discussion with the booking person of Toolbox LA and in light of the ever-moving dates of Covid-19 closings in the area, I am postponing the Commodore Los Angeles Super Show 2020 which was scheduled to be on April 25-26. I appreciate that Toolbox LA is willing to change the contract that I signed, and other dates later in the year have been offered. I will discuss this with members of the Southern California Commodore & Amiga Network and get their input. Then a new weekend will be chosen.
     Thank you for your patience and understanding in this.

          Truly,

     I've just heard the news that all L.A. gatherings of 10 or more people are prohibited until April 19.  With the changing situation of moving dates, I am postponing any future SCCAN meetings until more is known.

     With my arrival from overseas yesterday, I have just learned the news that Fresno Mayor Brand is closing all restaurants, due to the Covid-19 crisis. That means our venue, Panera Bread Restaurant in Fresno, will be closed (except for take-out) when we were to have our scheduled March 22 meeting. Therefore, our next meeting will be in April, unless circumstances change.

     Not having to postpone a FCUG meeting since the early 2000's,

G'Day, C= and Ami comrades!
     The next meeting of the Southern California Commodore & Amiga Network is Saturday, March 21, from 2 to 5+ p.m. at

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

     For discussion we'll talk about the April 4 City of STEM Science Festival in Downey and our April 25-26 Commodore Los Angeles Super Show in Chatsworth.  Come with plenty of ideas to bump up the excitement at CLASS!  And of course, any opinions on any of the CLASS details.
     Mario may be bringing in his newly-updated Amiga 2000 which has more stuff installed.  I'll be bringing in the Amiga 3000 and the Ultimate 64.
     Amiga hardware repairman Paul "Acill" Resendes may be back again!  (I have to give him a broken A4000.)
     Feel free to bring any other hardware/software that you wish to show off!

P.S. I plan to be at Toolbox LA, our venue for CLASS, on Friday afternoon, March 20, so I can inspect its facilities.

For the C64, C128 (in 40-column mode), and VIC-20, the BackBit cartridge is still for sale at

https://www.backbit.io/

See Evie's introduction to the BackBit at

https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PLik3CBZlL5eW3O-LaLSmVX5k3eL0nKWet&v=G3t2_iloGVQ&feature=emb_logo

and how to use the BackBit at

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YKruh_DiEY&list=PLik3CBZlL5eW3O-LaLSmVX5k3eL0nKWet&index=2

The big selling point of the cartridge is its compatibility with various disk, tape, and cartridge images, like D64, D81, CRT, PRG, P00, .20, .40, .60, .a0, and more.  Just drop the image(s) onto a microSD card and pop the card into the BackBit.  You see the file(s) on a menu, you select the one you want, and it loads and runs.  No Commodore calisthenics to get the computer to recognize the image type.

As mentioned above, the BackBit cartridge works with the VIC-20 with a special adapter that fits the BackBit into the adapter.  Evie has a video that explains it at

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Une9mquKL0w&list=PLik3CBZlL5eW3O-LaLSmVX5k3eL0nKWet&index=7
