• Next FCUG meeting - Sunday, December 19, 2021

    From Robert Bernardo@3:770/3 to Last month I on Sun Dec 12 17:23:59 2021
    Happy 40th FCUG Anniversary, C= and Ami aficionados!

    The Fresno Commodore User Group has its next meeting from 11 a.m. to 1:00+ p.m., Sunday, December 19, at

    Panera Bread Restaurant
    3590 W Shaw Ave. (corner of W. Shaw Ave. and Marty Ave.)
    Fresno, CA 93711
    (559) 271-0104

    We continue to celebrate the 40th anniversary our club! Last month I wrote:

    A ruby is supposed to mark the 40th anniversary, but I'm not getting everyone a ruby. ;)

    O.K., I relented. You'll get some rubies... the C64 text adventures, Ruby Rap and Ruby Chalice. Then we'll look at some Christmasy software and demos for for the C64 and VIC-20. And there is the new Attack of the PETSCII Robots for the C128.

    On the Amiga side will be the unveiling of the Amiga 500 with Vampire 500 v2 accelerator. It was my first Amiga computer, given to me by Dick Estel back in 1995. Throughout the years it's gone from a very basic machine to one with an outboard 1010
    disk drive and ECS (its configuration for Classic Gaming Expos and Vintage Computer Festivals of the early 2000's) to its new Vampire state as a very mean computer with 149 MIPS (million instructions per second) compared to the original .56 MIPS and 128
    megs of Fast RAM compared to the original with its 512K of RAM.

    For discussion, we'll have the election for officers and more talk on the Commodore Los Angeles Super Show 2022.

    Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!

    P.S. Again I will be driving in from Stockton, and I hope I will not be delayed by the fog. If I am delayed, I'm counting on v.p. Roger to carry on! :)
