Today's casual photos, taken with the Panasonic digital camera, are: Denial Computer's Mega-Cart (2009) for the Commodore Vic-20 (VIC 20), and Sega's Ghostbusters (1987), Zillion (1987) and Captain Silver (1989) for the Sega Master System (SMS). Images and brief commentary below:
I have made the zip files available of the WMA-converted (downgraded) WAV recordings from some of the panel seminars at the 2007 version of VCF East (4.0) in Wall Township at the InfoAge Learning Center, from Saturday, June 9, 2007. There are some true gems in there, so if you have ANY interest in the origins of personal computing and Commodore, I suggest you give these a listen!
The panel's star was legend Chuck Peddle, inventor of the famous MOS Technology 6502 chip, used in a wide variety of classic single-board computers and in microcomputers such as the Commodore PET, C-64 and the Apple II. Peddle was piped in via videoconference (Skype) from Sri Lanka. Multi-generational Commodore engineers Bil Herd, Bob Russell, and Dave Haynie were live onsite.
