Posted last night, here is the first from August 10-11 Commodore Vegas Expo v15. Premiering at the show, it is long-lost video from 2001 of engineer Jeri Ellsworth talking about the CommodoreOne and scener Peter Hanson talking about the European C= scene, especially about the Plus/4. It was filmed at an UPCHUG (University Place Commodore Home User Group) meeting in the public library in Tacoma, Washington.
Another long-lost video released at the August 10-11 Commodore Vegas Expo... it is scener Peter Hanson visiting Amiga, Inc. headquarters back in 2001. Just a few minutes long, this video also has the late Gary Peake and in the distance, the Amiga bus!
Now we have 2 more videos on-line! Saj Awan had a mini-presentation showing what he had on his exhibit tables -- PETpix 2, Koalamin, and the Incredible Musical Keyboard -- all running on the Commodore 64. Matt Brewster spoke about the MiST FPGA box and showed it running Amiga emulation. See
In 2009, Commodore Business Machines engineer Dave Haynie visited the Commodore Vegas Expo. He came in during the Friday set-up, stayed with us throughout Saturday and Sunday, and as we were taking down the equipment on Sunday night, he gave us an impromptu jamming session on his guitar! Here is video taken of that concert, a video that premiered at this year's CommVEx.
The CommVEx videos being uploaded keep rolling in! Two more have been posted, Lenard Roach speaking about his C64 productivity programs and his latest book, "Run-Stop/Restore," and Matt Brewster giving an introductory class on the Video Toaster 4.2 running on an expanded Amiga 2000. See
Premiering at the Commodore Vegas Expo v15, this video has the late Jim Scabery detailing what it was like to be a Portland, Oregon Commodore dealer in the 1980's, the heyday of CBM computing! He continued selling Commodore hardware and software up to the time of his passing in 2014.
