    That would be great. Many members of VCF don't have PETs or ar too young to be aware of that famous 1977-78 Microcomputer triology of the TRS80 M1, Apple II and PET 2001. It will be good to show them there is more to vintage computing than old Intel/MS-DOS machines.

    It seems "Best behaved" may become the favorite category. A lot of people planning various technical demonstrations during the PET Alive! event. Latest addition is André Fachat who just posted about his new 12 MHz (!) turbo card with 1 MB RAM and 512K Flash ROM. It'll be exciting to see!

    Anders, that is great news. I'm really looking forward to seeing what people have got!

    Not long to go now. I'll be putting up a final reminder post later today.

    If members of this community group haven't already, could you please post reminders about this Event in any other forums you might inhabit. Even members of non-Commodore ones might be interested. As I said, I'll kick it off at 21.00 hours GMT this Friday by creating two clearly named threads in the Commodore for the event images and discussion, and the other for the PET hospital.

    Oh, I've verified with Earl Evans (Retrobits podcast) regarding giving out some awards. He's looking forward to it, and will probably also show off his own PET. He's also going to give the event a plug in his latest podcast, assuming he gets it out in the next few hours. He is planning one for tonight.

    Ok guys, PET Alive is up!

    Steve, with your moderator powers are you able to amend the title of the event thread? I forgot to capitalise the Pet to PET. Also, any possibility of making the two threads stickys for the duration of the event?

    Sorry, sorry! Missed that message, Tez. Title is fixed and the threads were already stickied anyway, thankfully.

    Hi Guys,

    Just wondering about your thoughts on the two threads Post-event? Certainly they should be un-stickied but should they be closed off?

    I'm in two minds about this. Closing off a thread gives a kind of closure to the event. I like that as it brings things to a definite conclusion. It doesn't preclude people posting other post-event threads to continue discussions.

    On the other hand, why not just have a closing statement/summary but just leave the threads open for post event comments?

    Have any preferences?

    Whew! That's the show over!

    That was great. Thanks for getting behind the idea guys. Hopefully it raised some awareness of PETs and the VCF also.
