 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.  ​ 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 join the Mini revolution** 
 + 
 +I was pleasantly surprised today with a belated birthday gift from my son. 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...]]

 +**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? I unplugged the video cable and gave the video port a cleaning, but that didn't fix the problem either. ​  ​[[:​blog:​2018-09-27|read more...]]

 +**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...]]

-**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.
