Adios my 64, my Commodore 64

Does anyone remember those replica Commodore 64 computers?  I bought one when they came out six years ago, and I had been using it as my main “Internet” computer ever since.  It had served me well over the years, and had looked very cool on my desk, I must say.  I had also customized the […]

Video Carnage 11 – Commodore 64

The Commodore 64 computer had dozens of racing games, and they ranged widely in quality.  I played a fair amount of these as I was growing up, and only a handful of the ones I remember really stand out as great games. Motor Mania (1982) Ah, the joys of loading games from cassette!  Who wouldn’t […]

Golfyssey 27 – Robotman’s Front 9

Over the past three weeks, I’ve reviewed a total of 60 golf video games for 24 different systems.  This Golfyssey has taken me all the way from the lowly Atari 2600 to the PC and beyond.  I’ve played terrible games that barely resemble golf and only serve to frustrate, to realistic simulations that are so […]

Golfyssey 06 – Commodore 64

I adore my 64, my Commodore 64. Considering how I use (and am typing this on) a replica Commodore 64… and how both my Linux desktop and the virtual Windows XP desktop I run inside it are themed to have a Commodore/Amiga look… You could say I’m a fanboy.  And as you might have guessed, […]

Amiga cursors for Linux and Windows

Just what you’ve always wanted!  Now you can re-live the glory days of the late 80s when the Commodore Amiga computer was the most advanced multimedia computer you could get without buying a special effects workstation. Since I use a replica Commodore 64, and since I have the interface themed to look as Commodore/Amiga-like as […]

Terminal fun

W00T!  Okay, not actually fun, and not terminal as in deathly. I’m talking about the Terminal Emulator that comes with every Linux distribution.  It’s similar to the Command Prompt, for all those Windows users who have seen that.  As much as I prefer to never use it, sometimes I do.  It appears every time I […]

Peer pressure: All the cool kids are wearing plastic bags on their heads.

These are some things.  Not a few of my favorite things, but just some things I know. My parents’ 18 year old orange cat took over my new guitar’s case within a time span of five seconds I like big butts and I can not lie I’m sleepy I wish my parents were millionaires On […]

8-bit computing power OVERLOAD!!!

Today – between bouts of doing laundry, working on FembotWiki and wishing I had more time off – I loaded up my Commodore 64 emulator and played a bit (several hours) of Questron. Back when I was a young lad, my Father bought me and my brothers a Commodore 64. It was the first computer […]
