  1. Over the past 6 months I have had the incredible honor and privilege of corresponding with and interviewing Fender Tucker, the managing editor of Loadstar magazine from 1987-1999. As many of you may recall, Loadstar was the longest running professionally published Disk-Mag that covered and supported the Commodore 64/128 scene. It started in 1984 and went all the way to 2007, believe it or not. And every issue was 100% created on Commodore 8-bit machines. It's a very cool corner of the Commodore community not often talked about these days we shouldn't forget. Interview & Essays: https://www.amigalove.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1726 He's also selling his entire Loadstar Archive (hundreds of disk images, 1541 & 81, C64 and quite a few C128 disks) with PDFs of the newsletters, music files, and more. It's pretty cool and only $15. (Fender Tucker on the left, Jim Butterfiled on the right, at one of the SWRAP expos from possibly the late 90's)
  2. Hey Robert! "AmigaLove" here (aka Eric Hill). I would LOVE to do this, but that just so happens to be the same weekend as my daughter's birthday. Are you coming back in the summer with your own PaCommEx show again in 2019? Maybe I can participate more fully with that one (I had a blast last time). I will definitely plan on attending VCF PNW, though, if at least for a few hours. Sounds like good times.
  3. Thanks, man. I did one for Commodore sales back in April, too (since I see your sweet avatar pic there), based off of some of the same data sets: https://amigalove.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=45 @ParanoidLittleMan, my understanding is that the sales figures represent worldwide sales not regional. The numbers are rounded, but relatively accurate from what I've been able to tell in the research I made. If you've got another data set, I'd love to see it, though, to cross-check. Cheers
  4. I've always been intrigued by the seemingly parallel paths the Atari ST line took alongside the Amiga. The games were always similar; the fanbase migrated from the US to Europe in the late 80s/early 90s; the price points (and even exterior wedge designs) were comparable; and they both ceased (for the most part, give or take) near the same time as well. And Jack Tramiel. But I'd never had a good feeling for which scene was bigger overall. So, I performed a bit of research to check out the sales and marketshare. If you've ever been curious, too - thoughts welcome: https://amigalove.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=131 Cheers
