CBM engineer Bil Herd - virtual guest

Post by rbernardo »

Hello to all,

At this month's Nov. 20 FCUG meeting, CBM engineer Bil Herd will be our "virtual" guest as he comes on-line to video-chat with us. Bil Herd was instrumental in developing the Plus/4 and was the lead engineer for the C128.

If you have any questions or comments for Bil, post them here, and we will relate them to him at the meeting. We hope to videotape the session for everybody to see later.

Truly,
Robert Bernardo

Also Bil will be broadcasting live from his end of the feed (cross your fingers that errors don't pop up). He writes, "...we will be broadcasting live on

..."

Bil will be trying to record the session at his end of the feed, too.

Send your questions in,

Bil recorded the chat at his end of the feed. It is on line at



Some audio problems with trying to hear our questions, but if I can combine his video and audio and overlay the audio from our recording of our side of the session, maybe we can have one whole production.

Recorded from our side of the chat, our version of the Bil Herd chat is now on-line. Audio is much improved, i.e., more understandable, and video gaps on our side of the chat have been filled in with clips from Bil's video recording.

In a kind of follow-up to the above chats, Bil Herd has posted a new video about the Commodore 116, the $49 computer he and the other CBM engineers hoped would be good seller for Commodore Business Machines.

To find out what happened to the C116, see Bil's video at



Happy New Year!
