Cool, Nice find Maggoo. I might think about this as I might be able to bring in a MSX turboR GT which is my only MSX, but I'm not sure if I should be picking it up and moving it around. lol It is in Roswell, which is fairly close to Alpharetta where I live though, so...

By this time in April, I should also have my two PC-98 machines (PC-9801 DO which can emulate a Z80 chip to run PC88 Mode and PC98 Mode) and the PC-9821 Ce2.

I might have a few older CRT monitors, but for the MSX, I would need something that would support S-Video since that's the only video cable I currently have, the other one is audio only via an cinch style connector.

I might want to learn a bit more about the convention format first and then decide. : )

Hi Maggoo,

I just wanted to let you know that I've been in contact with one of the Vintage Computing Fair Southeast coordinators and I'm getting a bit more interested in doing an exhibit there. The coordinator thinks that having an MSX or Japanese Computer Exhibit with MSX being the main focus (Since I should have the two PC98 computers that should offer the ability to play PC88 and PC98 games) as a great addition to have there and I definitely agree. I could really use your help if you are interested.

Do you have an email address that I could speak with you more about this in case you would like to coordinate something together? My email address is in my profile.

Thanks for letting me know about this. Should be exciting if we came up with a nice exhibit and MSX history to showcase and educate about MSX computers at the fair. I might be able to have some friends come and help or at least visit the fair with me, but they would not be as knowledgeable about MSX as we would be, and to be honest, I'd feel better about having an exhibit with someone who is a veteran user. I've only had my hardware for about a year now, so my technical information is a bit limited. : )

Thomas, I'm definitely interested in helping out. I should have a few more of my MSX machines here by April. I'll email you later today to discuss what we could do.

Cheers.

Thanks Magoo. I look forward to hearing from you and glad to hear that you might be able to get a few more MSX machine by April. Should be fun.

And Vampier, I didn't know you were also in the U.S. : ) How 'bout that. : )
