64JPX | JoyPad eXpander for the Commodore 64

I was going down a retro computing rabbit hole and I stumbled upon this fantastic little device that allows you to plug in more modern game pads into the Commodore 64. Specifically, NES, SNES and Sega Genesis, the 64JPX. This is a small interface that plugs into the DB9 ports of the Commodore, Atari and … Continue reading 64JPX | JoyPad eXpander for the Commodore 64

VICE v3.5 | Versatile Commodore Emulator on openSUSE

I recently received a little bit of a ribbing, I suppose, via email about not writing about emulators that were not of the Nintendo vintage. This is a fair criticism, I probably spend more time messing with Commodore 64 things such as chatting on IRC with a Commodore 64 or playing with my new THEC64 … Continue reading VICE v3.5 | Versatile Commodore Emulator on openSUSE

That doesn't mean I am not without my opinions. Raspberry Pi 400 Kit I watched a video early in … Continue reading Raspberry Pi 400 | Blathering

Noodlings 21 | Inspiration Is Around You

21st Noodling of jam packed excitement... not really. This is the 21st hot-pocket-sized podcast that won't scorch roof of your mouth. I have a small collection of vintage or near vintage gaming consoles. I lean mostly in the Nintendo party as I think they have a great grasp on what is fun. I don't always … Continue reading Noodlings 21 | Inspiration Is Around You

Modern Computer in a Commodore 64 Shell

Of sorts. The Commodore 64 was my first computer and there is something about the classic, beige bread-bin shape that brings a kind of retro-excitement. I have many fond childhood memories of flicking the switch on the side of the case where I was greeted with that "Ready" prompt and the blinking cursor on the … Continue reading Modern Computer in a Commodore 64 Shell
