From Richard Goedeken of the Southern California Commodore & Amiga Network, there will be a Plus/4 modded with a NTSC/PAL switchable Kernal and EPROMs that make the computer run cooler and more efficiently. Alongside will be an unmodded Plus/4 and the appropriate, uninstalled crystals and chips, ready for the conversion to a modded machine.

Truly,

Hi Robert,

Is there any blog entry or website (or maybe a video) with further details regarding this modification?

In a most generous act, Noel Hyman of the Seattle area will be letting us exhibit his Commodore, wire-wrapped, prototype cartridge at CommVEx.

As in past years, A.J. returns with his "MightyFrame" and a choice UNIX computer. This time he will also be displaying a C64 running LUnix.
