 +**C128 Restored and back in operation**
 +
 +For the last few months, my beloved C128 was out of commission, due to problems with some of the keys on the keyboard. ​ Fortunately,​ I still had my C64C to fall back on, but I was determined to get my C128 operational once again. ​  ​[[:​blog:​2018-08-16 | read more...]]

 +**Creating an archive of game instructions**
 +
 +Maybe it's because I'm getting older, but I can't recall game controls as easily as I used to; at least with games that I haven'​t played for an extended amount of time. So, I've started jotting down these commands for easy reference. ​ [[:​blog:​2018-08-04|read more...]]

 I have completed a review of another noteworthy application published in Loadstar called File Cabinet. ​ It's an easy to use flat file database for the C64, written by D.J.B.

-**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.

-**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. \\ [[:​blog:​2018-03-17 | read more...]]
