 +  * [[:​blog:​2018-11-16|A new C64 game from Canadian publisher]] - I happened to stumble across information about another new game for the C64, set to be released early next year. What excited me most about this new game is that it is being produced by a retro games developer, here in Canada! To me, this is fantastic news and is something that compels me to throw my support behind. [[:​blog:​2018-11-16|read more...]]

Right from the get-go, however, the drive didn't sound very good, nor did it appear to work properly. Oh boy. [[:​blog:​2018-10-29 |read more...]]

But, I just had a desire to share a few of my thoughts on some of the negative emotions the Mini is generating amongst some of the Commodore retro community. ​ [[:​blog:​2018-10-27 |read more...]]

Apparently, he placed this pre-order earlier this spring and, today, it was finally delivered by the retailer. I am now the proud owner of a new C64Mini specifically released for the North American market. [[:​blog:​2018-10-15|read more...]]

 +  * [[:​blog:​2018-09-30 | The past is disappearing]] - In my last blog post, I brought up the subject about how there are currently no projects, within the Commodore computing community, regarding a "​rebuild"​ of the C128; similar to the projects like, the C64 Reloaded or the Ultimate64. ​ For those of us who still use our C128, rather than rely on emulation, we have limited options available to us when breakdowns occur. ​ [[:​blog:​2018-09-30 | read more...]]

 +  * [[:​blog:​2018-09-27 | Bad SID]] - Not more than a week after I finally get around to repairing my C128's keyboard, the sound started to crackle and fade out on me.  A quick jiggle of the video cable and the problem didn't go away.  What was up now?  [[:​blog:​2018-09-27 | read more...]]
