For your late night entertainment at CommVEx, we'll see video of Bil Herd presenting the "History of Commodore, part II" and of Bil Herd and Rob Clarke presenting "CBM 8 Bit Repair".

Filmed this year,

It looks like the produced models won't be ready in time to sell at the show. However, we will be examining the prototype(s) from BIT-C=.

Confirmed. We will be looking at one of the prototypes of this re-engineered bit of add-on C128 hardware.

A new C64 game will make its premiere at CommVEx. The programmer has been working on this game for years, and it's about 90% complete... good enough for a playable demo.

More info to come,

It took many hours of preparation and then filming, but it's finally done. In a video presentation for CommVEx, Roger van Pelt will show how to print in color and in black-and-white by using a Hewlett-Packard 940c printer and GEOS, and by using the same printer with Godot.

Not an exhibit and not really a presentation but a lot of fun. CommVEx attendees will be able to play the 3-D game, Space Spuds, for the Amiga computer, Haitex 3-D glasses included.

All Shiflet presentations have been cancelled in a last-minute announcement that he will be unable to attend CommVEx.
