Deadly SentryANOTHER VISITOR! STAY A WHILE…

Welcome to my website, dedicated to my favourite 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'm not a master programmer of BASIC or 6510 Assembly, nor am I an 8-bit gaming wizard. I'm just a regular guy who still enjoys tinkering and playing on his Commodore computers. I still use my C64 and C128 today and on these pages I'd like to share the fun things that I continue to learn about them .

And, in case you're wondering what model of 64 I like the most, well that would be the one inside my 128! :-D

LATEST NEWS & UPDATES

As I've been migrating content over to the Library, I've also started transcribing and adding instruction manuals for the games for the titles that I can find. So, over time, the Game Instructions section will include as many full game manuals as I can find time to transcribe.

This one was not a book that was published once in the past. This book I entitled “The Four BASICs”. read more...
