For your delegates’ information prior to the meeting; 

It was necessary to rewrite the ASCCA constitution because:-

  1. The government made a law stating that all nominees for a Board position had to have a Directors Identification number
  2. To widen the scope for people to nominate for directorships providing they can show competency
  3. Clarified the classes of memberships
  4. Stop Directors from voting at our general meetings
  5. Correction of spelling and grammatical errors
  6. Renumbering 

Commodore 64 turns 40!

Happy 40th Birthday Commodore 64!

The Commodore 64 was launched in August 1982, making it 40 years old. It cost hundreds at a time when PCs running DOS cost thousands, and was the first computer for many Australians. It brings back many memories of typing games written in BASIC from computer magazines, long load times, and plenty of arcade game conversions.
