     Time marches on, and the April 27-28 Commodore Los Angeles Super Show (CLASS) will soon be here!  Come and celebrate Commodore and Amiga computers with us at this inaugural event at

Toolbox LA
9410 Owensmouth Avenue
Chatsworth, California 91311
Admission: $25 for one day or both days
Times: 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day

     We'll have plenty of computers for attendees to see and use, items for people to buy, and prizes for the public to win or receive for free!

     For more information on any of the shows, see the links below.

Next FCUG meeting - Sunday, April 14

Tue Apr 9, 2019 1:20 AM

Happy Easter, C= and Ami aficionados!

The Fresno Commodore User Group has its next meeting from 11 a.m. to 2:00+ p.m., Sunday, April 14, 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 the new location for our meeting! After 6 1/2 years at our previous venue, we now have different one! Also note that instead of our customary third Sunday of the month meeting, we are meeting on the second Sunday, due to the fact that Easter falls on that third Sunday.

The day before the meeting, Bernardo Studios will open up in Fresno, where we will film videos for the upcoming April Commodore Los Angeles Super Show, the June Pacific Commodore Expo, and the August Commodore Vegas Expo.

At the actual FCUG meeting, we'll look at the new items to be sold at the shows - the Vintage Commodore 128 Handbook by Margaret Morabito, and from Tim Harris of SharewarePlus, the C64/128 FM Radio Module, the Final Cartridge III+, LumaFix 128, C64 Multicart+, Trackdisplay for the 1541-II, Pi1541 (Raspberry Pi not included), the 1541 Diagnostic cartridge, cynthCART 64, and SD2IEC for the C64/128/VIC-20/SX-64 user port. Speaking of SD2IEC, we'll check out the petSD+ from Dave Stevenson, which gives a SD card drive for the Commodore PET (PET 4032 being brought to the meeting). Time to download C= PET programs from commodoregamebase.com !

Naturally, we'll play around with the latest games for the VIC-20 and Commodore 64, do more testing with the Ultimate 64, and do p.d. disking with the Amiga 600.

Truly,
Robert Bernardo

Shift-Clr/Home: More 8-Bit Thoughts In A GigaBit World (fwd)

Fri Apr 5, 2019 10:26 PM

---------- Original message -----------

From: Lenard Roach
Date: March 24, 2019

Greetings to all Superheroes and Super Criminals out in cyberspace:

I wanted to let everyone know that, after almost 2 and 1/2 years of waiting, delays, and other problems, the latest... from my warped mind have finally gone "live" on Amazon and are available for purchase through Amazon books.

www.amazon.com/Shift-Clr-Home-8-Bit-Thoughts-GigaBit/dp/1546363866/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_1?keywords=Shift-Clr%2FHome%3A+More+8-Bit+Thoughts+In+A+GigaBit+World&qid=1553437659&s=gateway&sr=8-1-fkmrnull

..."Shift-Clr/Home: More 8 Bit Thoughts In A Gigabit World" is my second compilation book on bits, tips, and articles that I've written over the last few years and have been previously presented in various Commodore computer publications throughout the world. This book is designed to appeal to the Commodore user and non-Commodore user alike. Many have enjoyed my first book [Run/Stop-Restore: 10th Anniversary Edition] and have eagerly awaited the second. Now it is finally here and available...

[The] book runs $14.95 each. Your support of my work is greatly appreciated.

Thank you again to everyone for your patience as I tried to make [this] as close to brickhouse perfect as possible. I'm sure that those with a keen eye may find more mistakes than I did.

Please enjoy... Now it's off to work on the next book...
