Los Angeles Maker Faire 2024

 Our tables were back at the City of Stem / Los Angeles Maker Faire on Saturday, April 6.  Though we didn't have a prime location like last year (we were more buried among the robotics' booths), once the attendees found out where we were, we had a constant stream of visitors who played on the Commodore and Amiga computers.  And a lot of them, especially those music synthesizer crowd, liked Jerold's exhibit connecting a MIDI keyboard to the C64 and to the Nintendo game system. Hard to see the screens in the pics due to the outside light (and our monitors were at 100% brightness!) Check out the non-computer picture, too!

Wishing Randy well as he moves to Texas.  Here are some photos of the event!
