  1. Yup, Volley for Two is very nice! I don't prefer Jam It. Back in California, Robert Bernardo organizer - Commodore Los Angeles Super Show
  2. In more sobering news, Los Angeles County has announced it is requiring certain venues, like bars, to require customers have Covid vaccine verification and to be fully vaccinated by Nov. 4. Without vaccine verification, customers cannot enter. CLASS is held in the Burbank VFW hall, and half of that hall is a full bar, the bar only separated from the rest of the hall by a wall and an inner door. There are two West Magnolia Blvd. entrances to the building, one to the bar and one directly to our side of the hall. By the time of CLASS, if you enter from the street and into the bar in order to go to our show, you will have to show proof of full vaccination. If you enter from the street through the door directly leading to our side of the hall, then showing proof is not required (yet). You are strongly recommended to be fully vaccinated when coming to CLASS. Keeping up with the changes, Robert Bernardo organizer - Commodore Los Angeles Super Show
  3. Thanks for all the ideas! I'll look into Micro Hexagon. As for the PET, we'll have a PET 8032 on hand. Not planning for the PET 4032 to be there, Robert Bernardo organizer - Commodore Los Angeles Super Show

  5. We have no games in the running right now. :) In the past we had Boxing (from Compute's Gazette), International Soccer, International Karate, Decathlon... to name a few. We need ideas! :) Back in California, Robert Bernardo organizer - Commodore Los Angeles Super Show
  6. Evie Salomon, creator of the BackBit cartridge and other Commodore bits (!), has released the BackSID, a replacement for the 6581/8580 SID chip in the Commodore 64/128/64C/128DCR. BackSID auto-detects into which Commodore it is installed, and with an upcoming C64 configuration program, the user will be able to customize the settings and upgrade the firmware. Not only does BackSID offer good sound but also supports inputs, like mouse, paddles, and Koalapad. It does not offer audio pass-through. For more BackSID details, see https://store.backbit.io/product/backsid/ To see Evie’s video presentation of the BackSID, see https://youtu.be/vhtraERrMNw?t=161 To see the rest of Evie’s products, see https://store.backbit.io/ The BackSID is very reasonably priced at $29 US, not including shipping.

  7. And the game competition for cash has been announced (though the game hasn't been decided). Truly, Robert Bernardo organizer - Commodore Los Angeles Super Show

  9. Time marches on! The Nov. 6-7 Commodore Los Angeles Super Show 2021 in Burbank, California, is getting nearer! Now there are more presentations, new raffle and door prizes, and a nearby Saturday dinner buffet (mmmm!).

  12. Happy summer, C= and Ami aficionados! The Fresno Commodore User Group has its next meeting from 11 a.m. to 1:00+ p.m., Sunday, September 19, 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 After we eat our lunch, the meeting proper will begin with old/new business and then with talk about the Oct. 16-17 Amiwest Show in Sacramento and the Nov. 6-7 Commodore Los Angeles Super Show in Burbank. Because CLASS is getting nearer, we'll lock down the video presentations for the show. We'll watch a brief video on the Retro-Printer Module ( https://www.retroprinter.com ) which promises to easily connect your classic computer to modern USB printers! Supported computers range from the C64 and Amiga to the Atari 8-bit and Atari ST to the Tandy Model 102 to more! The Amiga 600 returns, this time with the thick Deluxe Music Construction Set manual so that we can more easily make music with the accompanying program. Last month we tried out Evie Salomon's BackBit Pro cartridge with the Plus/4. This time we try out the cart with the VIC-20, thanks to its slot adapter. On the C64 side, among the several new games we'll see, once again we'll play around with CAD-M, this time more seriously trying to design a CLASS logo. Let's try to match the logo already done by Marc Rifkin of the Southern California Commodore & Amiga Network and CBM veteran.

  13. Happy end of summer, C= and Ami comrades! The next meeting of the Southern California Commodore & Amiga Network is Saturday, Sept. 18, from 2 to 5+ p.m. at Panera Bread Restaurant 19662 Nordhoff Street Northridge, California (818) 407-9400 This is our meeting before the November 6-7 Commodore Los Angeles Super Show ( http://www.portcommodore.com/class ) in Burbank, and we'll be finalizing our big plans for that event. If you have any ideas to make CLASS better, let us know at the meeting! The Oct. 16-17 Amiwest Show in Sacramento is only a few weeks away. We'll talk about that, too. For hardware/software, we'll look at the Dread, the new Doom clone, running off my low-spec Amiga 600. Also for those musically-inclined, we'll look at the classic Deluxe Music Construction Kit with its comprehensive 120-page manual. The Ultimate 64 returns; this time we'll try to design a Commodore Los Angeles Super Show logo with CAD-M and have that logo spin around so that we can film it for a CLASS commercial on Youtube. I'll be giving away bunch of Amiga commercial software packages (mostly games), courtesy of Brad H.. As always, feel free to bring any other hardware/software that you wish to show off! And you are strongly recommended to be fully vaccinated before coming to the meeting!

  14. Veteran Commodore repairman Ray Carlsen now has his website located at a different address. It is at https://www.portcommodore.com/rcarlsen From there you can go to his repair articles, his Commodore and Amiga power supplies, adapters, cables, and computer savers. A few pages need touching up, so there will some changes in the future.
