||Bargeman Research Labs - Karl Sefcik |
Karl is a charter member/exhibitor of the CoCoFEST! For some time now he drives to and from the fest in a electric hybrid car. Karl exhibits, "Something new, something unusual." Drop by his booth and say, "HELLO".
Maybe the wild card display of the fest, it started with the only purpose of keeping the fest going. I'll have travel (Alaska) and print media info, etc. And then ya never know (the wild card factor). See ya there! Karl
||Boisy Pitre |
Boisy will be co-hosting the CoCo Trivia Contest Saturday evening.
||Brendan Donahe |
My project is called CoCoVGA, which is a prototype 6847 VDG-to-VGA enhancement. It is compatible with the CoCo 1, MC-10, Dragon, and many CoCo2 systems. This is a joint project between Ed Snider, Steve Spiller, and me that has been in various stages of development since 2011. I take advantage of the digital signals shared between the VDG and the rest of the system in order to add features which would not be possible via sampling the analog outputs from the VDG.

Jim will have special "Silver Anniversary" T-shirts available.
Jim is the 5 1/4 disk collector. Last year he purchased one of the rare DEC dual TEAC drives cased in steel and wrinkle painted to match the CoCo2 and 3. The stepping rate matches the CoCo so that it never chatters as other drives do - completely QUIET! With the connectors provided on the back, you can chain two units together for CoCo's ability to support a 4-drive system.

||Sub-Etha SoftWEAR |
In 1990, Sub-Etha Software was formed in Lufkin, Texas. You can read all about it, if you are curious. Since then, much has changed. Itís hard to believe that was almost 25 years ago!
Although Sub-Etha hasnít done much for years, for the past few months, I have been posting on my Apple site, www.appleause.com, about my exploits with the Arduino platform. I havenít done this much recreational programming since my days using the Radio Shack Color Computer. This has made me decide to dust off my old software company, Sub-Etha Software, and set up this website. Although I have had the domain for many years, it was just a subsection of one of my personal sitesÖ until tonight.
||The Music Man |
Schu provides not only all the audio for the fest but also gives a show of his newly acquired RC model aircraft simulator.
