I Still Adore My 64 and 128

(updated on May 21st, 2018)

Welcome to my website, dedicated to my favorite pieces of computing technology, the Commodore 64 and 128. These two machines are where my fondness for computing began and where I have a lot of happy memories.

I still use my C64 and C128 today and on these pages, I'd like to share the fun things that I continue to learn about them as well as some of wonderful hardware and software still being made for these 8-bit machines.


Disk Whiz Review

This is a review of a small, but useful application, to help you with your floppy disk housekeeping duties, on your C128. read more...

Blogging With the C128

I know it is probably strange, but I really do like typing on the C128 keyboard. It is something that I miss, when working on the laptop. I would really like to be using my C128 more for typing documents, for the blog and such. But the problem is getting the text into a format that I can use on-line. read more...

Online Floppy Disk Editing Services

There are some really good floppy disk editors out there, but most of them are written for MS-Windows and do not work well (if at all) on Linux. So, I have written a brief How-To on using three excellent on-line floppy disk editing services, which will work with any modern OS; all you need is your favorite web browser.

BurgerWhop! Review

Hey, what do you know; I was able to get another review up onto the site. This one is another fun game for the C128! BurgerWhop! has to be one of the best ports of the classic game, Burger Time, I've ever played. It has captured much of the charm and character of the original, which makes it one of my favorites on any home console.

Star Fortress Review

I never heard of this game, until just a few months ago. Star Fortress is much like a combination of Star Castle and Yar's Revenge, and has become one of my favorite pick-up-and-play games. Follow the link below to read my review.

Full Review of Steel Ranger

I finally got around to writing a more complete review of Psytronik's new release, Steel Ranger. You can find my review listed in my Review section, or just follow this link…

Playing Through Argus

Been spending some time playing through the game Argus and, although I'm making some progress, it's been a little slow going. Here are my first thoughts of the game.
