TexElec will be at VCF Midwest on Sept. 11-12

Hey everyone, this is Kevin with TexElec! I just wanted to let everyone know I’ll be attending the Midwest Vintage Computer Festival on September 11th and 12th in Elmhurst, IL. I’ll be at the 8-Bit Guy’s Booth with him and the Commander X16 prototype. If you have a minute, stop by, squeeze through the crowd of people who aren’t there to see me, and say hi. David told me a few weeks back that LGR will be at the booth directly next to us. So, if you’re wondering who the weird spare guy standing between the two famous people is, well, that would be me. 🙂

Microsoft Campus Building 26 Memories & Windows 2000 Beta / Launch

Good Morning Everyone! A few days ago, I saw an image of Building 26 on Microsoft Campus being demolished. This building was pretty special back in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. It turns out, I was involved in the Windows 2000 beta cycle myself so I happen to have some video and pics of events tied to it and the subsequent release. There are a few photos of me in there too, and lots of folks involved in the Windows 2000 release. Goodbye 26, we had some great memories and insanity!
