Next FCUG meeting - Sunday, January 20
« on: January 15, 2019, 04:25:53 AM »


Happy Martin Luther King Day, C= and Ami aficionados!

     The Fresno Commodore User Group has its next meeting from 11 a.m. to 2:00+ p.m., Sunday, January 20 at  --

  Bobby Salazar's Mexican Restaurant
  2839 North Blackstone Ave. (corner of Blackstone and Michigan)
  Fresno, California
  (559) 227-1686

     This month we'll talk about the very busy January 5-6 Retro City Festival and other upcoming events with Commodores and Amigas.

     The 64 Mini returns, and also the new Ultimate 64 (http://ultimate64.com) will be presented.  We'll throw a battery of game and productivity apps at the U64 to see how good its emulation/simulation is.  Speaking of productivity, in September 2018, it was the 20th anniversary of Wheels, the alternate operating system to GEOS, and so to honor that anniversary, we'll have a look at Wheels in control of GEOS apps (Roger, bring the club 1581 disk drive and 1351 mouse).

     In other software matters, for the C128 we'll try out the recently-updated C128 text adventure games, A Mind Forever Voyaging, Trinity, Bureaucracy, Beyond Zork, and Leather Goddesses of Phobos.  The VIC-20 that was supposed to be used at the Retro City Fest failed, and so, if Roger brings in his VIC-20, we'll try out the latest programs for that.  Also from the Retro City Fest comes the Plus/4 with the show's two popular games, Zombie Calavera and Digiloi.

     The Amiga 500 v8 makes its first appearance at our meeting, along with a bunch of the newest games and demos on disk.

     If you have anything for Ray Carlsen to repair, give it to me, because around March 23 I'll be traveling (again) to his house in the Pacific NW.

          Truly,
          Robert Bernardo
