     Well, I received an Apollo Firebird several weeks ago, but I haven't installed it in anything yet.  An A2000?  An A1000?

Not another load from but another load to give to Ray Carlsen when I see him in September.  I have 4 brown C64s and 3 C64C's to be repaired by him.
     All repaired!  One C64 had to have its SID chip replaced, and Ray put an ArmSID into it.

Also I'm tired of having C64 composite/s-video cables with a RCA male plug at the end for audio.  In the past I've used all kinds of audio adapters to connect that RCA plug to modern computer speakers which have a 1/8" mini-plug.  Time to convert those C64 cables to have female 1/8" jacks that can accept the 1/8" mini-plugs.
     I had Ray construct several of those cables for me, but I need more!  Maybe another four...  Smiley
     Right now it looks like I'll be visiting Ray in late October.  Some broken C128's to give to him for parts... A club member's 1541 to be repaired.  Oh, I read that Ray can replace the old, linear power supplies in brown 1541's with a modern p.s..  I'll have him do that to two of my 1541's.  No more heat problems after that operation!

Happy May, C= and Ami comrades!
     The next meeting of the Southern California Commodore & Amiga Network is Saturday, May 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 June 25-26 Commodore Los Angeles Super Show to be held at the Burbank VFW hall.  If you have any ideas/presentations/hardware for the show, now is the time to tell!
     We?ll play around with some of the latest C64 apps released since our March meeting, such as a bug-fixed Flight Simulator II, the Basil PET emulator, the Great Giana Sisters PETSCII, Sheep in Space, Tasered in the Crotch, and various nuvies.  We?ll try out a resurrected Amiga 3000 (OS 3.1, 2 meg Chip RAM, 16 meg Fast RAM via ZIP-to-SDRAM adapter, SCSI-to-SD hard drive), courtesy of the repair skills of Duncan M. and Steven B. of The Other Group of Amigoids, our sister club in San Jose.  Perhaps member Mario L. will bring a laptop with Amiga Forever running on it.  Smiley
     I?ll show off souvenirs I picked up at the April Vintage Computer Festival East.  As always, feel free to bring any other Commodore and Amiga hardware/software that you wish to show off!

          Truly,
          Robert Bernardo

Happy Mother's Day, FCUG members and guests!
     The Fresno Commodore User Group has its next meeting from 11 a.m. to 1:30+ p.m., Sunday, May 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


     During our discussion time, I'll report on the Vintage Computer Festival East that was held in New Jersey. I'll even show off a C128 Neo board that was bought at the show.  Then we'll talk about the June 24-25 Commodore Los Angeles Super Show and even the August Vintage Computer Festival West in Mountain View, California.
     For the hardware/software part of the meeting, the VIC-20 returns with SD2IEC. We check out an Amiga 3000 which has a SCSI2SD card drive, 16 megs of Fast RAM via a ZIP-to-SIMM adapter, OS 3.1, and a huge amount of WHDLoad games. (This A3000 had extremely bad motherboard damage but was brought back to life by Duncan M. and Francis B. from the South Bay area.)
     If we have time, we'll power up the Ultimate 64 and look through the latest C64 software for May.
     After the meeting, Bernardo Studios opens up in Fresno so that CLASS presentations can be filmed.


          Truly,
