City of STEM festival 2022

On Saturday, April 2, the City of STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) festival was held at the Columbia Memorial Space Center in Downey, California. On this cold, cloudy day, thousands still attended the show!  The Southern California Commodore & Amiga Network had two tables there in order to show off classic Commodore and Amiga computers.  https://www.cityofstem.org Photos by Robert Bernardo, Mario Luppi, and Debbie Luppi.

Commodore 128 - the game, Cloneimals

At last Sunday's FCUG meeting, we looked at the rare, 80-column, scrolling, C128 game, Cloneimals.  Here are some photos taken off the 80-column monitor.

Our first Southern California Commodore & Amiga Network meeting of 2022!  The weather was nice, and of course, there was a lot of talk!  Here are some shots at our meeting place, Panera Bread Restaurant in Northridge, California.
