Here is a brief list of what Earl will cover in his presentation:
- His personal background in the computer field, hobbies, and systems he’s worked with over the years
- Beginning of Retrobits – the short-lived website in 2000, followed by the start of the podcast in 2005
- A brief description of a handful of Retrobits topics and interviews over the years, including Stewart Cheifet, Bil Herd, and Chuck Peddle
- Showing off his 1977 Commodore PET 2001-8N computer and C2N datasette
- VIC-20 “Super Expander” (3K extra RAM, BASIC extensions for graphics)
- Thoughts on the future of the podcast
- Mention of some other interesting podcasts for retro enthusiasts
Of course there will be other things covered as well, but you’ll have to attend the meeting to see and hear for yourself, or you’ll have to check out the meeting notes after the fact
As always, we’ve got plenty of other exciting things planned for the upcoming Commodore Computer Club meeting, so be there or be square.
If you know anyone in the Vancouver, Washington / Portland, Oregon metro area or beyond, feel free to bring them along. We always welcome new people to the meetings.
Also feel free to bring your wife, husband, girlfriend or boyfriend as they are welcome at the meetings too, so don’t let that stop you from coming. The more the merrier!
Last, if you are looking to buy, sell or trade Commodore computer hardware, software, books or manuals, feel free to bring it along as we’ll have a buy/sell/trade area setup at the meeting.
We’ll see you at the November 5, 2010 Commodore Computer Club and Users Group meeting!
