Join us at the Vintage Computer Festivalers tables at the Bay Area Maker Faire 2019 on May 17-19. https://makerfaire.com/bay-area/ Bay Area Maker Faire is at the San Mateo County Event Center (fairgrounds), 1346 Saratoga Dr, San Mateo, California, USA. We'll be in the Expo Hall.

We'll have Classic Computers for the hands-on exhibit. Personally, I will be bringing an Ultimate 64, Amiga 600, and as a back-up, an Amiga CD32. Others will be bringing in systems ranging from Apples to Ataris.

Over a hundred thousand attendees at the event,

My systems, including the CD32, were set up in record-breaking time this afternoon. That means I can relax during the extra set-up time tomorrow morning. :)

That's before the Friday attendees enter in the early afternoon,

Friday and Saturday I met old and new friends at the show - CBM engineer Bill Seiler, CBM Lenard Tramiel, Mark who worked in technical support for CBM Canada, Evie Salomon who is working on a new C= cartridge, June "Nybbles & Bytes" who does C128 Youtube videos, FCUG's Ricardo Quesada who has developed UniJoysticle 2, and others from the Sacramento Amiga Computer Club. Very nice for them to come by the exhibit!

Last rainy day at Maker Faire,
