CommVEx v11 2015 exhibits

Post by rbernardo »

Because next year is the 30th anniversary of the Commodore 128, we'll have almost the entire family on display for attendees to use -- the flat C128, the plastic European/Australian C128D, and the metal C128DCR.

If only we had a Drean C128,

Because next year is the 30th anniversary of the Amiga, we'll have an expanded Amiga 1000 computer on display.

I will bring the pre-production C128 that I have (the one that was stolen off of Dave Haynie's desk!)

With Leonard Tramiel now coming to CommVEx, I've been thinking of more things in honor of his visit. I'll bring out the brown C64 autographed by his father Jack Tramiel. Perhaps I should dig out the VIC-20 autographed by actor William Shatner!

With the expanded room of the Ford F-150, I can carry more hardware. For Leonard, I'm thinking of bringing in the PET 2001. For Bil Herd, I'll have to bring in a Plus/4.

rbernardo,

I would love join your CommVEx v11 again this year, if you would allow it.

I still don't have a commodore, and still am only working in vintage UNIX-based machines, like the AT&T UNIX PC and the Convergent Technologies MightyFrame, but I have made significant progress on all my projects since I met all of you last year.

The conversations I had with many at CommVEx helped me greatly accomplish what I have since then.

I'd love to bring an example of a working UNIX PC and MightyFrame this year, along with MFM hard drive emulators, designed by David Gesswein at

Thanks for considering me again.

Yes, AJ come and join the fun at CommVEx! Now if we only had an Amiga 3000UX (the Amiga computer which ran UNIX) to display... :)

If only...YES, that UNIX Amiga would be extremely cool!

Thanks, Robert.

I'll plan on coming by Friday night of the event. Should I be pre-registering anywhere?

Thanks!

Nope. Just show up. We'll be setting up Jockey Room 1 after 4 p.m. that Friday.
