2  Retro Computing / Commodore 128 / THE128RM (The 128 Remastered) on: April 23, 2018, 08:32:12 AM
     Yow! I saw this on another forum. It's a C128 modernized and redone to fit in a slim-line C64 case. The webpage is at

http://www.the128rm.com/index.php?id=home

snd the German discussion thread is at

http://www.forum64.de/index.php?thread/81460-the128rm-the-128-remastered/&postID=1254330#post1254330

     I used translate.google.com in order to translate the first post there --

"Hello everybody,

For some time I have been working on a C128 version, which fits in the C64 case (slim case). I have some modifications built in like: VIC / VDC output switcher, Control port switch, 8 bit color ram, Accepts 6-36VDC input voltage, Dual SID, etc.

Here are some pictures of the project (still in the prototype phase):

EDIT: Pictures uploaded to the forum and inserted! External links removed! war64burnout"

     Looks like I'll be using a lot of Google Translate,  Smiley

Happy National Superhero Day (April 28), C= and Ami comrades!
     The next meeting of the Southern California Commodore & Amiga Network is Saturday, April 28, from 2 to 5+ p.m. at

  Panera Bread Restaurant
  19662 Nordhoff Street
  Northridge, California
  (818) 407-9400

Note that the meeting is April 28, not the usual second Saturday of May.
     Because our next meeting won't be until July, if you have any item that needs Ray Carlsen's repair services, give it to me at the meeting, and I'll give it to Ray when I pass by his place on the way to the Seattle Pacific Commodore Expo in June (see below).
     More freebies will pour in, courtesy of John Y. of The Other Group of Amigoids (San Jose), Rolf M. of Ventura, and Thomas M. of our club! Grab what you can!
     We'll talk about the past April 14 Livermore Innovation Fair, the upcoming May 18-20 Bay Area Maker Faire (San Mateo), the June 9-10 Pacific Commodore Expo NW (Seattle), and the August 11-12 Commodore Vegas Expo. We'll also talk about some leads on organizing a C= event in southern California.
     I'll bring in the SX-64 with the WiFi64 modem from SharewarePlus of England and a selection of games. Also the Amiga 1200 returns with some of the latest games and demos from late 2017.
     As always, bring in any Commodore/Amiga hardware and/or software you wish to share!

I've started a Go Fund Me campaign for getting the 4000 (NON-CR) Rev B reverse engineered. All project files will be open and public. The cost for this being done by a US company is not cheap but also very fair for what we get in return. Please take a look at the page here and help if you can!

10  Retro Computing / News and Events / Next FCUG meeting - Sunday, March 18 on: March 14, 2018, 09:39:36 AM
Happy St. Patrick's Day, C= and Ami aficionados!
     The Fresno Commodore User Group has its next meeting from 11 a.m. to 2:00+ p.m., Sunday, March 18 at  --

  Bobby Salazar's Mexican Restaurant
  2839 North Blackstone Ave. (corner of Blackstone and Michigan)
  Fresno, California
  (559) 227-1686
 
     This month we have a little bit for everyone.  Having seen Jump Jet for the C64 some time ago, this time we have Jump Jet for the VIC-20.  Comparison time!  Having looked at Ultima IV for the C64 last time, this time we have Ultima IV Remastered for the C64.
     In preparation for the the August 11-12 Commodore Vegas Expo, we'll play around with a few C64 bits, the new International Karate Ultimate (set for the CommVEx game competition), and Break Dance / Commodore Rap (set for our CommVEx commercial).
     For the Plus/4, there will be the new platformer, Pets Rescue.  For the C128, we have the new utility, WsDos 7.1.
     For the Amiga, there will be a newly-refurbished A2000 with 68040, 2 meg ChipRAM, ?? FastRAM, and OS 3.1.  And if it will fit in the car (the box is 5 feet long!), we'll have a preliminary look at the Amiga CD32 game package, Surf
Systems' Biff Boardin'/Urban Surfin'/Biff Select V2.03 with skiboard, skateboard, and short surfboard!

     Oh-oh, Duncan wants to give me an Atari 520ST that he has tweeked.  He insists that I take it.  O.K., perhaps I should exhibit it at the May Maker Faire 2018.  Smiley

     Once again more freebies pour in from former Commodore/Amiga users - Richard C. of Fresno and Rolf M. of Ventura.  Take what you wish!
     Topics of conversation will revolve around the Bay Area Maker Faire in May, the Pacific Commodore Expo NW in June, and the Commodore Vegas Expo in August.
     For this meeting, I'm bringing in Jim Happel's VR64... Virtual Reality 64 for the Commodore 64 and its accompanying 3-D game, "Street Defender".  Try out those funky controls for battling the invading, alien creatures!  Also I have the newest C64 commercial, platformer game, "Sam's Journey".  If we can get it running on Mario's C128, we'll try out WsDos 7.1.  For more WsDos 7.1 information, see

     Richard G. wants to show off the MSD SD-1, previously seen in sorry shape at the January meeting and now fully rebuilt and functional.  Also appearing at the meeting will be an Amiga 2000 with 68040, 2 meg ChipRAM, ?? FastRAM, and OS 3.1; VIC-20, and Plus/4.

15  General Category / General Discussion / Removing link spam at blog.retro-link.com on: February 25, 2018, 09:39:05 AM
     I went over to blog.retro-link.com the other day in order to see if there were any new comments on the latest posts.  To my surprise, I found comments from others who were advertising other websites, i.e., link spam.  So, I went through the pain-staking task of deleting all the link spam from 2018 to the beginning of the blog in 2011.  Now that the blog has been cleaned up, I will have to regularly watch it and remove any future spam as quickly as possible.
