PDXCUG Meeting Highlights
Vol. 2, No. 6 - June 9, 2011 - Meeting Highlights
This month we had a few different Commodore computers and hardware to display, including a few Commodore 64 computers, an SX-64 Executive C64, a C128 DCR and 1084S Monitor, a Commodore DTV and a Plus/4. Also, the Vic-Switch, Easy Flash cartridges, Comet64 Internet Modem, a homemade RS-232 device for the joystick port, an 'LBow cartridge port extension, an Ultimate 1541-II, JiffyDOS, a stereo SID board and more.
Feature: The Commodore Plus/4
Adventures in Time on the Plus/4
Goog brought his Commodore Plus/4 but forgot to pack any software. Using our virtual meeting on CommodoreServer's chat rooms, we were able to get a suggestion of a program to try out on the Commodore Plus/4. After visiting a Web site, we were able to download the program in D64 format and try it out on the Plus/4.
Sneak Peek: A Commodore 64 Walkabout
Robinson Mason allowed us to take a sneak peek at his upcoming book, A Commodore 64 Walkabout. Looks like a great read and will probably do well due to its easy reading format and excellent content. Thanks to Robinson for allowing us to take a look at it before it was released!

Agent Friday hacking away on his 38.4K baud driver.
Goog installed JiffyDOS on his C64 and 1541 disk drive.
Both JiffyDOS installations are of DMackey's 3-KERNAL ROM Adapter. These boards are great because you can have up to 3 KERNALs installed on a C64 - Normal, Auto Boot, and JiffyDOS - all selectable by a toggle switch.
