This is a public facing notebook. It MIGHT get organized later, maybe. It is like my virtual junkyard of Commodore 64 related information
The Commodore 64 is an 8-bit computer introduced January 1982 and discontinued in April 1994 with approximately 17 million units sold. It was my first computer and still my favorite. I often wish I could do more of my day to work with it and I have projects in the works that will help me to that end.
Okay, who makes a vision statement about a 30 plus year old computer… really. Outside of playing some of my old favorite games on the trusty old C64, there is an actual, semi-useful project that I have planned for it. It started when I saw that there is an Ethernet expansion card for the machine. I had to have one and I dreamed of using the Commodore 64 for something other than the games I enjoy playing. Then I came upon this project called Contiki.
I will have to build it, but afterward, I intend on having pre-built disk images here or linked here for future use.
The features that interest me most are:
- IRC (Internet Relay Chat) – for chatting
- Email – client for writing and checking emails from a email webserver.
- Breadbox64 – C64 twitter client
I am most interested in the IRC client as that is what I would like to do most with the C64. Email… Okay… I guess but Twitter Client would be pretty dang cool too.
