Production on the C128 VGA adapter (C128 RGB-to-VGA) is edging closer.  Pictured above is the latest prototype which was presented at The Other Group of Amigoids meeting in October, 2013.  The colors are correct, and the engineer wants to do a minor board revision so it interfaces better with the GBS-8220 board.

In business since the 1980's, Computer Station at 2258 Pacific Ave. in Long Beach, California, is the last Commodore/Amiga/Apple II/PC-DOS storefront in Southern California.  Last summer, owner Tony Chai announced that he is retiring, and all software and hardware is deeply discounted.  The store has a few months left before being closed for good.  The photos above are from my visit in November, 2013.

Happy New Year!
