Kent Sullivan of Dr. Evil Labs will be appearing (tentatively). If you have questions about the SID Symphony stereo cartridge or the Swiftlink-232, you can ask him at the show!

Just signed up for a double presentation, it's Eric Hill. On Saturday, he will be talking about At 2 p.m. on Saturday, he will talk about The Amiga 1000 Rejuvenator - Rebuilding the Legend. A 10-minute break will come afterwards, and then he will get into Amiga 1000 Boot Magic... boot your A1000 from one floppy disk straight into OS 3.1.

Truly,

Eric made an extremely well-put together presentation with even some drama and laughs. What a dedicated individual!

At PaCommEx on Sunday was the surprise visit of Donald Elman, editor of the classic Commander magazine, the magazine for "ALL COMMODORE Computer Users - Beginner, Advanced, and Professional". He brought some of his magazines to show, and I convinced him to give a short talk to everyone in the museum. We scrambled to get the video gear, museum lighting, and museum sound system to accommodate his very impromptu presentation. What a success! He even made reference to his editorial found in the March, 1984 issue of the magazine. See

With his presentation, we couldn't go forward with the video of the Newtek engineers, and we went straight into the raffle for the free C128 system.
