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

Noodlings 11 | Quick Tiling Fusion 360 in the Kitchen

New episode for the New Year and that title is almost entirely nonsensical because they are different subjects. Have a listen to episode 11 of this jibber jabber!

I was going through the Autodesk forums and read a lot … Continue reading Noodlings 11 | Quick Tiling Fusion 360 in the Kitchen

Commodore 64 on the Internet with IRC | YouTube Edition

This is nothing more than a placeholder post and an announcement of a somewhat embarrassing example of my poor video editing abilities. I previously created a blathering about getting the Commodore 64 on the Internet with IRC and step by step instructions but under the pressure of one person (see how easily I am swayed). … Continue reading Commodore 64 on the Internet with IRC | YouTube Edition
