Re: Alternatives to eBay?

As mentioned elsewhere on this forum, Retrogames has a huge catalogue for the C64 and pretty much every other retro system: http://www.retrogames.co.uk/ I believe they ship worldwide. Some of their items are expensive, but I've always found them 100% reliable and, if you live in the UK, it's pretty ...

Re: Banana Pi

I only found out about Raspberry Pi yesterday and it looks like a lot of fun; some of the people on Denial think it's the modern day answer to the VIC-20, but at the moment I think it has more in common with the ZX-81. I'm thinking of getting one. A low cost, credit card sized PC is too good to miss...

Re: Problems connecting to Melon64

I had a similar problem last night. I could access the site, but every time I clicked on a thread it wouldn't load. I had the same problem with two different Linux distros and browsers (Wary Puppy + Seamonkey and LXLE (low spec version of Lubuntu) + Firefox).

Re: Most sought after games?

The true rarities aren't about money; they're a sign of status in the community that can't be bought. Many call, but few are chosen.

Re: Share your online retail links

This site can be a bit pricey, but the service is good and there isn't much they don't stock (for any system):

Re: What's your next purchase going to be?

Bigger fish to fry at the moment, but EasyFlash would definitely be on my hit list if I was in C= buying mode. It's not that expensive when you think about the functionality it offers.

PC Build Updates

Some of you may remember that I started a thread on REMOVED about building a PC. The motherboard I bought went back and there have been a few changes since then. I decided to go for a budget build instead of future-proofing. It's my first build and if I'm going to make mistakes it's better to make t...

Re: eBay Madness?!

If a seller lists an item with an expensive BIN, it usually means that he doesn't fancy his chances in a straight auction i.e. a £30 BIN for an item that either sells at auction for a few quid or comes back unsold. I'm not completely against BINs though as long as they're reasonably priced and I fe...

Re: thanks guys

This forum has come as a pleasant surprise to me as well. I found the site through the link at Denial.

Hopefully, the REMOVED we know and love will return once Kim finds another host, but it's good to know that there's somewhere else in the meantime. Thank you to the people who made it possible.

Re: What's the most expensive item you've purchased?

The most expensive C64 items I've bought are an SD2IEC, Ray Carlsen's Computer Saver and a couple of modded PSUs to protect my C64s/late model VIC-20s from over-voltage. The most expensive C64 game I've bought is the HES Australia Ghostbusters cartridge. My loose copy cost £20 plus £10 shipping fr...
