For all of those Commodore followers...
Something interesting happened today. One of my co-workers asked me to work
with her on something relating to a company called Ensoniq, a manufacturer of
sound cards and hign-end MIDI equipment. She was reading to me over the phone
about the founders and how they came from Commodore International. Hmmmm.
She then read the names: Al Charpentier and Robert Yannes. I didn't
immediately recognize Al's name, but I knew Yannes. He created the prototypes
for the VIC-20 and C64. Reading on, she confirmed my guess. Al ran the LSI
section of the Advanced Systems Design Group within Commodore. From the info
that we have, it seems that Al did mostly chip design, including the
VIC-I and VIC-II, and Bob did mostly systems design.
Well, in about a week or two, I'll be meeting these guys. Does anyone have
any special questions that are not too off-the-wall and that I can slip into
Ya Rich. Ask them if they would be interested in a first once again?
Hey Bill, with our own server up - do you feel like trying a realtime
chat group? Or is this asking too much - I know you are busy. Maybe
someone else could set up a host system for this. This would be *Real
Neat*. I guess if I suggest it - I better read up on it 8-) Anyone
else think this would be a neat idea???
