A lot of Commodore fans took selfies with Michael, and others brought their VIC-20 computers to be autographed. We were honored to have him visit our event and it was the highlight of the day for sure. Michael donated a framed picture and an Apple external hard drive to the museum for a future fundraiser. HAL DS 2000Marcos Meconi’s MachinesJohn Massari’s TRS 80 Model 1Compared to last year (not that that’s a high bar!) Kennett Classic v 1.9 was larger and had many more attendees. This time we were located across the street at “The Garage Community Center”, which is literally a re-purposed garage, with nice open spaces and a high ceiling. Attendees working the MacintoshBlerx micro BLORG light control systemStephen “BLERX” WhittamThere was no shortage of wonderful homebrew devices on hand. Stephen Whittam (right) uses the brand name “BLERX” for his controllers and devices. It was his light show that made our chiptunes concert all the more special, later that evening. Show attendee watches the Heathkit H19TRS 80 and Intel System 80 Multibus SystemPaul RickardsSo we decided to run a BASIC benchmark test between John Massari’s TRS 80 Model 1 and Howie Zwick’s Intel System 80 Multibus computer with Z80 motherboard. The multibus system had ROMs with XY BASIC installed, and the TRS 80 was running LDOS BASIC. It was no contest, the TRS 80 was 2X as fast. Paul said, “Yes, but the terminal is slower, probably that’s why the Intel system lost.” The TRS 80 was John’s original system, he got it when he was in 6th grade. Bill DromgooleSWTPc 6800 Expansion ChassisMore Show AttendeesI brought my 1702 ePROM programmer for Bill Dromgoole but we both forgot a USB2Serial adapter, maybe next time. But, we did get a chance to look over this interesting SWTPc 6800 expansion chassis. inside is two MP backplanes with RAM and various other cards and some custom cards that allowed the RAM to be used with a custom S-100 bus bridge that connected to a CP/M system running in another box.
