Less than a month 'til VCF East 8.0! (fwd)

Postby rbernardo » Thu Apr 12, 2012 10:27 pm

The two sessions with CBM engineer Bil Herd are on Saturday at the show! (And I'm curious about Dan Roganti's Sunday workshop on building a vector graphics kit box that lets your vintage computer display vector graphics on a vector monitor or oscilloscope. Especially if it works for a Commodore...)

Hi! I'm new to this forum so if my question is a bit inane, I apologize for my ignorance. I guess it is quite evident that I missed
your- Vintage Computer Festival East 8.0 will be held May 5-6. It sounded very interesting an I'm sorry I missed it however, when is the next one scheduled and do you ever have any scheduled for the west coast?

The next VCF Midwest is Saturday, Sept. 22, in Lombard (Chicago area), Illinois. Go to http://vcfmw.org/

The VCF Southeast is Saturday, Feb. 9, 2013 in Roswell, Georgia. See the discussion at http://jledger.proboards.com/index.cgi? ... hread=3423

The VCF East for 2013 has not been set yet.
...and do you ever have any scheduled for the west coast?

The last VCF (the original one on the West Coast) was 5 years ago. Another one is not planned.

Truly,

I have some ideas for new hardware (that is around and available) that are somewhat backwards compatible to the Commodore line but there is a limited quantity of machines left and I'm keeping it secret so that people don't just take them because they want a computer.

If you are proven at writing compilers, operating systems or Commodore 64 Emulators then I would like to see a future but if you feel that the old technology can't compete then I understand.

I would like to be involved somehow but only if there is going to be a future for these machines.

Does anybody know if the patents to the Commodore 64 have run out?
