World of Commodore 2016 Pictures or Videos?

Hi All,

Is there a blog or pictures/video of any of the presentations going to be posted from World of Commodore this month? I wasn't able to attend and it would be great if there was some videos or something from the expo.

Thanks!

Yeah Novaterm should be fine. Most any terminal will work. I use CCGMS 7.0 as my BBS browsing terminal. I always used it back in the day with my 1670 modem.

Re: New Member Intro

Welcome! I have friends that live up near Medford. Also in Gold Beach. For BBSs most of them these days use telnet. There was one that still had honest to goodness phone line support but your best bet is the WiModem. It plugs into the user port and lets you connect to BBS via your Wifi router. It em...

Re: Problem with Commodore 4040 dual floppy drive

Hi. Have you tried pushing the head on the rails to make sure it moves freely and isn't jammed, with power off, of course? I have had a few drives get stuck that way from storage and the grease that was on the rails turning into a glue like substance. I little bit of cleaning the rails with Isoprop....

Hi All, I am trying to find a copy of I am the C128 by Creative Software. I do not think it is archived anywhere that I could find.

Re: Mini 32K RAM expansion hides in your VIC-20's cartridge port.

Nice Job!
