Happy Autumn, C= and Ami comrades!

The next meeting of the Southern California Commodore & Amiga Network is Saturday, Sept. 21, from 2 to 5+ p.m. at

Panera Bread Restaurant
19662 Nordhoff Street
Northridge, California
(818) 407-9400

We'll be talking about the July Commodore Vegas Expo v15 (CommVEx) and the upcoming Oct. 23-27 Amiwest Show in Sacramento. If you want me to look out for anything at Amiwest, tell me at the meeting. :)

The A2000 Video Toaster system will be brought in for updating, and the other usual equipment will be there ready to set up -- Ultimate 64, VIC-20, and Plus/4 (now fully-working after its TED chip was replaced). After seeing Archon in action at the Seattle Commodore Computer Club, I was thinking of running Archon on the C64 or Amiga for the enjoyment of us members! :)

Feel free to bring in any hardware or software you want to exhibit or discuss!

Happy Halloween, C= and Ami aficionados!

The Fresno Commodore User Group has its annual picnic lunch from 11 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Sunday, October 20 at --

HomeTown Buffet

Fresno, California

Because it is our picnic lunch, all club members and their families will have their meal paid by the club. We'll eat, drink, and be merry, and not necessarily talk about computers! :)

Happy Thanksgiving, C= and Ami comrades!

The next meeting of the Southern California Commodore & Amiga Network is Saturday, Nov. 9, from 2 to 5+ p.m. at

Panera Bread Restaurant
19662 Nordhoff Street
Northridge, California
(818) 407-9400

We'll be talking about the recent Amiwest Show in Sacramento and the upcoming December 7 Downtown Los Angeles Mini-Maker Faire where we will have a table or two under the name of "Classic Los Angeles Computers!".

The usual Commodore gear that we run at the meeting will not present this time, because my car will be full of equipment from another haul, a haul that members can look through.

However, the Ultimate 64 will be present, this time updated with v1.24! Due to most of last month's meeting being devoted to looking over donated gear, we did not have time to play Archon. We'll have it running this month! And if Mario brings his Amiga 1000, we can have Archon running on the Amiga, too.

Feel free to bring in any hardware or software you want to exhibit or discuss!

At this meeting we'll talk about the Amiwest Show which just happened a few weeks ago and the Downtown Los Angeles Mini-Maker Faire which is happening on Dec. 7.

In software, we'll try out the latest C64 Halloween games -- Luna, Forbidden Forrest, and Get Witchy. Also we'll also have more, new C64 games -- Rocket 'N Roll, ISS Emergency, Keystone Kapers, Croaky, Alien 8, and Zilsspleef. Then there is the music player compilation, XOXOX Softpack. Once again vice-president Roger may have his presentation ready on CAD 3D from IHT Software. For the VIC-20, we try out the updated "It Came From the Grave". For the Plus/4, we try out the new adventure, The Hut. The Amiga 500 returns with plenty of classic and recent game releases.

I'll be bringing in hardware from a recent pick-up of a collection. Free or minimal cost to those who want it!

Truly,
