Sorry this took so long guys.  Long videos take even longer to edit and upload, so I had to wait for a day when I had plenty of time.  Anyway here is the first video from Fest West 2017.  I hope you all enjoy it!

I have to admit, hearing this from the audience point of view was rewarding...  And I'm surprised nobody pointed out that my clock was wrong :) but I'm grateful. That's just an ntp issue.   

 

Now I can't wait to see the other presentations again.

One of my best memories from FestWest is watching you play Sparkdrummer's Challenge with the crowd cheering you on, erupting in laughter when you crashed the ship.  Looks like your skills have improved somewhat ;)


Was a thrill to see my game elevate Sinphaltimus emotionally! ;)

Thanks Airshack!  I'm really happy to hear you (and others) enjoyed the day.  

I'll try to get your presentation out next week.  I apologize for being so slow on these this year, but I've been kinda busy.

 

BTW Airshack, nice photos!  Thanks!

I thought I would see the video of my presentation....over 30 years and not a single one from any TI Faire.

I think Omega's been pressed for time yet, Rich. He may not have had time to process that one yet. . .

You got that right Ksarul, I've been slammed lately.

 

Tell you what Rich,  I'll jump you to the top of the que, your video, will be the next one I complete.  Sound okay?

I saw swlovinist's video right away, but Omega's first video posted was the TIPI demo, which makes sense because it was the first presentation of the day.  :)

 

Editing video takes time if you're combining multiple cameras/angles.  I'm still getting the hang of it myself and I do it on a Mac.  God help him if he's trying to do it with Windows.  ;)  ;)  ;)

Speaking of presentations...Senior Falcon has been working on a portion of the BASIC Compiler workflow which DRAMATICALLY speeds up the process. What I demo'd at FestWest17 is already the old/outdated way to manage Compiled BASIC. I'll have a short video out soon outlining these exciting developments.

 

PS - Rich's presentation was pretty cool so the faithful on AtariAge has something good to look forward to...no pressure Omega. ;-p

I have Thursday off, so I'm shooting for no later than 10:00 pm (pacific time).

Rich,

  Sorry it took so long, but I've been slammed for time lately.   Someday I'd really like to see this as a 'stand alone' BASIC that works within a DOS environment, for instance being able to type something like, "BASIC PROGNAME" to run a basic program would be so cool, and upon completion return to the DOS prompt.

 

   Anyway, here it is...

Omega, have you ever used an MSX machine? They have that relationship between MSX-DOS and MSX-BASIC.

Thank you so very much! Finally I have a video of one of my presentations.

I've never used an MSX machine, but considering it's origins and relation to Microsoft, I'm not surprised.   :)

BITD, my TRS-80 Model III was the same way, which is something I really appreciated.  Execution of an assembly language program or a BASIC program did not differ much, other than having to type BASIC in front of the filename.  I've always been partial to the DOS environment as it's fairly quick, unlike the TI that requires you to go through startup screens or multiple menus, and other assorted BS to load a simple program.

 

While it's only my lowly opinion, I think a true DOS environment for the TI is way overdue.  With the FinalGROM99 on the horizon I envision some intriguing possibilities.  Now if RXB's BASIC comes to fruition, and it turns out to be as fast as implied, coupled with SAMS support, well... happy days!

OK, No excuses but I took some pretty bad pictures and not enough all together. I really was very overwhelmed by this event. Being in the same room with all you gurus and having one on one interactions with the likes of Pete, Rich, Mike, Greg, Matt, Sparkdrummer, Airshack and others was incredible for me. I also failed to get a group shot. Some folks prefered not to have their photos taken so i focused on the presentations. Anywaze, here's what I got...

There is always next year... IF  I decide to do this again.

While I cannot and will not commit yet, you might want to pencil in April 28th of next year... just in case.  :)

 

On another note:  After seeing those pictures of Airshack, I realize I need to drop a few pounds!

I have a feeling Omega will host this wonderful event again next year. If not, I may need to go public with those photos I took in the event parking lot. ;)

Kevin Savetz from the Antic Podcast (for the Atari 8-bit computers) was in attendance at FestWest 2017.

He provides some commentary on the event at the beginning of Antic episode 43. Here's the link:
