...from time to time, some thoughts need to get out...
Farewell Patrick!
Author: Zeldin - written on 31.12.2014

Farewell Patrick!Axis/Cascade is no more. We are all still shaken by the unexpected death of our friend and group mate Patrick aka Axis/Cascade. We wanted to express our sorrow, so I coded a little intro, which you can find in the C64 demo section of this page. The following text is a rough excerpt taken from the scroller:

Dear Patrick, may this be the condolence from the the group that was co-founded by you long time ago. We want to give you our last salute. I (Zeldin) know how much you were breathing the spirit of the scene. That's why I thought a goodbye demo would have made you happy. You and me exchanged lots of mails about how much we both enjoyed the good ol' days and of course: how much we miss them... It was this tie that emotionally connected us for over 15 years. Thanks for all your help in supporting the group and your indefatigable endeavour in spreading our name. Your tattoos were legendary! Thanks for your work on fb and youtube. Your channels were appreciated by a lot of people. Thanks for being such a good chap. You'll be sorely missed!!!

Mach's gut, Patrick... den Adler im Herzen, sge4ever!

Vintage Computer Festival Midwest 2022 - VCFMW17 - new Video from '8-Bit Show And Tell'
When Robin said goodbye to his friends after the 2019 Vintage Computer Festival Midwest, he had no idea that he wouldn't be seeing them again for THREE YEARS. Due to the pandemic, the 2020 show was cancelled outright, and ongoing travel restrictions made my attendance in 2021 unfeasible. So it was with great excitement, when he returned for the 2022 show, which in one form or another has been an annual highlight for me since 1998. Join him as he takes a tour around the show, meets some old and new friends, including some faces that will be familiar to many of you.
