« on: March 07, 2010, 12:58:00 AM »
Join the 300+ attendees who will be coming to Blockparty 2010, April 15-18, at the Wyndham Cleveland Hotel in Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A..  And get those demo entries in!  As the biggest demo party in North America, Blockparty is looking for demos ranging from the most modern to oldschool.  For the Commodore and Amiga enthusiasts, your entries can be in the oldschool, wildcard, or music compos.  In fact, the music group named Project Ruori will be having a perfomance which includes C64 SID music.  Play with the other happy people in the Video and Board Gameroom.  Open 24 hours a day, the gameroom will have everything from the most modern consoles to Commodore and/or Amiga.  Listen to the various presentations from those at Notacon 7, the event which goes on at the same time as Blockparty.

I would love to come, I am sure I am already away that weekend and I would need to plan a holiday around it! Have a great time all who enter/attend, I expect it will be awesome.

The sceners seem concentrated in the Midwest USA and the Toronto area of Canada.

Join Jim M., Eric K, and myself at the Commodore/Amiga gaming table in the games room.  We plan to have two C64 systems (one of them running Shredz64 and the Guitar Hero guitar, and the other with plenty of C64 games), a VIC-20 system (with the Rittenhouse Multicart/Development Cart, Galactic Warriors, Denial Collection 3, and more), and an Amiga 500 (with lots of games).  If there isn't enough room in the gaming room for us, we'll spill into the Notacon Radio room.

Speaking of radio, we'll have a roundtable discussion of Commodore and Amiga on the Notacon Radio channel - planned time of the talk to be on Saturday afternoon.

Speaking of radio again, we plan to have another VIC-20 system in the N7C Notacon Ham Radio room; that VIC-20 will be running the Kantronics Hamtext cart.

          Next weekend,

    After a bit of trouble getting the correct electrical adapter on the PSX64 board for Shredz64, we got it working... much to the delight of the attendees who visited the gaming room.
     There were extra monitors there, and I hooked up a C64 DTV 30-games-in-one joystick to one.

...a VIC-20 system...
    Up and running.  That system is running like a dream.

...and an Amiga 500...
    Most popular game with the attendees... Altered Beast.  Late tonight the A500 was lent to demo coders who discovered I had brought the music tracker, Octamed Pro.  Right now they are making a demo with OP and intend to enter it in the Old School category tomorrow.  When they finish using the A500 late tomorrow night, it goes back to its place of honor in the gaming room.

I found more C= and Ami enthusiasts in the show crowd and invited them to the discussion.

    After trouble with the extra VIC-20, the keyboard contacts were cleaned and the computer reassembled.  It works well now, and all that is needed is for one of the Notacon ham people to attach his transceiver to it.
