At the Global SX-64 Party
When was the last time that Commodore portable computers outnumbered Apples at your local Starbucks? If you answered “Never.” You would have been right – at least until this January.
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the world’s first color portable computer – the SX-64, the Commodore community is celebrating this milestone by holding a series of flash-mob style parties at Starbucks outlets around the world.
Most of the events took place on the week of January 20th, here in the Seattle region, the Puget Sound Commodore Users Group gathered at a Starbucks in Kirkland, Washington.
At any given time, there were 7-8 SX-64s up and running, with games, new hardware, and even Internet access via a makeshift LAN for use with the Comet 64 serial-to-Ethernet adapter boards which members of PSCUG develop.
