Topic: Photo shoots

This weekend, the XzentriX party took place in Seeshaupt, close to Munich, Germany. XzentriX is one of the largest retro-computer parties in Germany and advertises itself as "a party for people who love their computer more than their wife (and kids, and dogs :-) )". MSX user AuroraMSX visited this event, made a photo shoot and even found some fellow MSX users, like prodatron, who was demonstrating SymbOS!

Hey Aurora, it was really cool, that you visited the Xzentrix! Smile I guess this year it was the first time, that we had 2 real MSX guys on the party (you and Wolfgang)! Smile Two comments about the pictures: The Commodore PET was in real a VIC20 but built in a CBM case. And the one, where you had no ideo, what it could be, was a computer from East Germany ("DDR" ) with an "U880"-CPU (the DDR Z80 clone). As you can see, the XzX is quite interesting because of the big amount of different old 8bit machines + their (still active) users.
@Manuel: I will upload a video and a preview of the GFX9000 version tomorrow, I was again so surprised yesterday evening, how fantastic this card is!
