I will have an AmigaOne X5000 for demonstration if there is some table space for it.

After today's successful FCUG meeting, we'll have more to exhibit at CommVEx -- a VIC-1541 disk drive autographed by CBM spokesman William Shatner and a classic Emplant (Mac-emulation) board from Utilities Unlimited.

More goodies to exhibit at CommVEx and you'll have to carefully look for them in the spacious Ballroom 9 (which may be expanded to the adjoining ballroom if no one is next door) --

a proof copy of the upcoming book, "Shift-Clr/Home: More 8 Bit Thoughts In A Gigabit World", by FCUG newsletter editor, Lenard Roach

and

9-pin-to-USB joystick adapters by Retronic Designs of Canada

The AmigaOne G4 USB ports need those adapters,

I just grabbed the PC 20-III. It has a hard drive, a 5 1/4" floppy drive, and a 3 1/2" floppy drive. It comes with two Commodore manuals - GW-Basic 3.2 and MS-DOS 3.2. It's smaller than what I expected. I've been told that the internal power supply is really grungy, so it won't be good to power it on until all the grunge has been cleaned out. :) The Commodore PC keyboard that was cleaned and refurbed by Ray Carlsen will go well with it.

Writing from the SACC meeting at the moment,

The Vampire 500 came in today! So, in addition to Matt B.'s Amiga 600 with Vampire 600, I'll be bringing in the Vampire 500!

Hmm, attached to an Amiga 500?

It was great to show it. Some attendees did not know about the AmigaOne, and some had never touched one before.

Some attendees did not know that Commodore Business Machines made PC's. :)
...I'll be bringing in the Vampire 500!
Though the Vampire 500 was not installed in any machine, it still drew interest from those in the know.

Tending to have it installed in an A500,
