Re: Commodore Retro eXpo (CRX) 2017

I had a conversation with Steve at mWaveStudios, once again confirming their support and attendance at CRX. We are trying to work it out so that a large majority of the people being interviewed for the Kickstarter project's book/DVD will be in attendance at CRX so that the task of interviewing all o...

Re: Commodore Retro eXpo (CRX) 2017

Due to the anticipated number of people attending this event, we have increased the size of the room for this event by another 20%. We now have capacity for up to 520 attendees. If we need more space (which could likely be the case at this rate), the Alexis Park Resort can offer another 50% increase...

It has been reported that discussing the subject of CommVEx 2017 is being blocked. There are a few dozen people who would like to post their feelings on the significant changes that are being made for CommVEx - so let's have an open discussion!

The A500/A1000/A2000 version is the same board. I am helping test it before it goes into production.

Re: CommVEx v12 2016 exhibits

I will be bringing an A2000 and an A600, both with Vampire accelerators. I am also bringing my SX-64 that has a TFT screen in place of the glass tube monitor.

Re: CommVEx v12 2016 - July 30-31

Robert, Josh is certainly not alone. Nobody really likes to openly whine, but behind closed doors we (more than a dozen of us) talked about the space situation and finally decided to approach you asking for an open discussion on the matter. I think tables should be $25 each. You want $25 for admissi...

Re: CommVEx v12 2016 - July 30-31

There was a group of us at the meeting that came up with the additional funds based solely on what we discussed and agreed to. I am very surprised that this was changed without notifying those that pledged more than needed to cover the larger room, based on the conditions discussed. We (the particip...

Re: CommVEx is a FRIENDLY show!

Sorry, but I find this kind of hard to believe. I have never seen anything even remotely close to someone being disrespectful at any CommVEx that I have attended. I can perhaps see if people were working on a project (as is common at CommVEx) that someone might not get speedy answers to questions th...
