A few more photos from CommVEx v11 2015

I dug these last CommVEx photos out of the SD card of my digital camera.  CommVEx was very memorable this year and very rare that CBM engineer Bil Herd and Leonard Tramiel were together at the show.  The attendees and I wondered when this would ever happen again.

Not pictured is the modded PAL Plus/4, originally from Peter Hanson.  Bil Herd's first off-the-cuff remark was why would anyone in these days go through the trouble of adding in 256K of battery-backed RAM and all the other hacks.  When I explained that it was modded in the late 1980's/early 1990's, he looked more closely at the how it was done and complimented it by saying the hacks were done very professionally.

Lots of wire-wrapping,
