Chortle.. Real pain that someone hacked the server after all the trouble I went to keeping the site clean .. Still it is now back and the thousands of people who look at it each month no have something less rude to greet them.

Seems we might see some C64 games in the Virtual Console soon too, here's hoping for Paradroid, Uridium, Bionic Commando, Boulder Dash, Elite (God that would be so cool just think if they managed to get it...

Ok so for awhile now I have been hoping that Mike might come back and carry on his great work with the site, after all it is darned cool. Sadly it seems unlikely so I have started sorting the whole site out. Today I have finally cleaned out all the annoying BOT accounts from the forum and wonder wha...

Bye Bye Vestas..

Well today I handed in my notice. Things have been going badly for me over the last couple of months with chest pains and general depression. So I snapped when my Boss only offered 3% of a payrise and nothing else. Be a shame to leave but I think I have made the right choice as I'm already feeling b...

Hi all.. ;) Nice to see a bit of action on the site again.. Yes I sadly flashed my PSP to damned firmware 1.51 without thinking someone would hack version 1.50 so now I'm stuck with no homebrew stuff. :( Still could be worse.. I might have flashed it to 1.52!.. Still Untold Legends is pretty damn co...

Well what a couple of years eh? I took over this site for Kernal sometime ago because he had other projects eating into his time. And I never really have had time to make any updates or changes as I've been carted from place to place with little time to stop and take note. So anyway what have you al...

Making a demo?

Been thinking of making a demo for the C64 (just to relive those Compunet memories of the 80's). Anyone got any idea where I can find some apps for this? Need a cross assembler for the PC->C64 (perhaps one that works with an Emulator? although I have a few C64's ;) ). Also an arts package for making...

Your drive needs some TLC but I expect it's just a simple clean out it needs :)

I'm just looking to buy a new place nearer to where I'm working at the moment... By the sounds of it I should have enough space to spare for my little C64 to setup with all its friends. :)
