Re: Commodores in Wonder Woman 1984

I noticed and was quite amused.

I recently saw a bunch of Commodore 64 in an episode of WandaVision too. There was text on the screen with the well known typeface of our beloved machine.

Considering where it is relative to the CIA, I am quite sure the hot chip is U9 and it is a DRAM IC.

Re: Help needed to fix my C64 - rare KU-14194HB

- One memory chip has a hot spot. The prime candidate... I also have the PLAnkton EV ordered from eslapion (this one will be a challenge to install, as the PLA and Processor are so close, it is impossible to insert an IC removal tool). I suspect you'll have to consider a Saruman-64 for the faulty D...

Re: SaRuMan-TED 64k RAM for C16 and C116

Hi, I would like to order a switched version for my C16. Shipping to Copenhagen, Denmark. Thanks Shipping to Europe seems quite problematic right now. Many packages have been lost. I suggest you get one from Polyplay which is located in Germany. See: https://www.polyplay.xyz/SaRuMan-TED-64k-RAM-Upg...

Why would they ? I'll still come here a few times a month.

Just won't be as active. Probably won't be developing new products but I'll still offer those I already created.

Don't worry. I'm still breathing!

Re: directly connecting C64 to PC

My end result is to transfer files from the PC to the C64 that I can then save on disks, and the other way around, be able to save programs directly on the PC. You're expressing two very different objectives here. The end result you want to achieve is very different from... What is the easiest way ...

The great moment has arrived!

Well, people, it looks like you'll see a lot less of me in the future. Going back to the Commodore 64 has been a great adventure I started back in 2006 and it came to a sort of rebirth back in 2015 when me and Fredric Blaholtz came up with PLAnkton. I was more or less forced onto that path because v...
