     Premiering at the Commodore Vegas Expo v15, this video has the late Jim Scabery detailing what it was like to be a Portland, Oregon Commodore dealer in the 1980's, the heyday of CBM computing!  He continued selling Commodore hardware and software up to the time of his passing in 2014.

    Oh-oh, due to my traveling up to Seattle to visit the Living Computers: Museum + Labs and arrange details for next year's Pacific Commodore Expo NW and to visit the Seattle Commodore Computer Club, I am pushing back the next SCCAN meeting to Saturday, Sept. 21.

     In 2009, Commodore Business Machines engineer Dave Haynie visited the Commodore Vegas Expo.  He came in during the Friday set-up, stayed with us throughout Saturday and Sunday, and as we were taking down the equipment on Sunday night, he gave us an impromptu jamming session on his guitar!  Here is video taken of that concert, a video that premiered at this year's CommVEx.

     Now we have 2 more videos on-line!  Saj Awan had a mini-presentation showing what he had on his exhibit tables -- PETpix 2, Koalamin, and the Incredible Musical Keyboard -- all running on the Commodore 64.  Matt Brewster spoke about the MiST FPGA box and showed it running Amiga emulation.  See

     Another long-lost video released at the August 10-11 Commodore Vegas Expo... it is scener Peter Hanson visiting Amiga, Inc. headquarters back in 2001. Just a few minutes long, this video also has the late Gary Peake and in the distance, the Amiga bus!

     Posted last night, here is the first from August 10-11 Commodore Vegas Expo v15.  Premiering at the show, it is long-lost video from 2001 of engineer Jeri Ellsworth talking about the CommodoreOne and scener Peter Hanson talking about the European C= scene, especially about the Plus/4.  It was filmed at an UPCHUG (University Place Commodore Home User Group) meeting in the public library in Tacoma, Washington.

Happy Labor Day, C= and Ami aficionados!

The Fresno Commodore User Group has its next meeting from 11 a.m. to 2:00+ p.m., Sunday, August 25, 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

Note that the meeting is on August 25, not our regular third Sunday on August 18.

The Commodore Vegas Expo v15 (CommVEx) is over!  Expect a full show report -- exhibit-wise, financial, and observations!

Also, expect some fresh videos taken at the show, for example, the PETpix 2.1 which is streaming .MP4 video of any length into the C64 and Koalamin (think of the musical instrument Theramin except for the C64)!

If I can handle it, the Amiga 2000 Video Toaster comes to the meeting, complete with 3 video monitors (hey, the car is already packed with them).  For the C64, we'll have the new Super Duper Blaster game and the steering controller for the Street Defender program and the VR64 glasses.  For the VIC-20, we'll try out the new-from-Australia VIC-2066 cartridge which provides up to 35K memory and a built-in SD2IEC drive.  Watch out VIC-20 Doom!

           Truly,
           Robert Bernardo

Hi, Robert. In reality, the forums exist at https://retro-link.com/smf. If you go to forum.retro-link.com, there is no certificate, and you may get weird errors in your browser as you navigate. However, if you stick with https://retro-link.com/smf, you shouldn't experience those problems. Hopefully I will one day have the time to perform a successful upgrade and migration of the forums to eliminate all issues.
