Liber809 at the CoCoFest

This past weekend I attended the 21st Annual Chicago CoCoFest and brought over the Atari 130XE as well as a passel of assemble Liber809 boards.  Interest in the project was high even though attendance was obviously geared toward the Color Computer.

On Saturday afternoon I gave a presentation on the development of the board and the software.  There were good questions asked, and everyone seemed pleased.

Currently, we have plans to attend both VCF Southwest and the VCF Midwest this year.  Our hope is to have the Liber809 board expanded to other 8-bitters by that point.  Stay tuned.

Up and Ready for Sale

Today I updated the Cloud-9 website at to reflect the fact that the Liber809 is now shipping.

Several folks have asked what is required to really make use of the Liber809.  A SIO2PC device, which mates the Atari SIO port to a PC via a USB cable, is required to do any loading of applications into the Atari itself.  SIO2PC devices are available at various places on the Internet.
