Welcome to Commodoreman's website.

This site is primarily focused on Commodore computers which were developed during the late 1970's and '80's. This includes the Commodore PET/CBM, VIC20, Commodore 64, Commodore 64c, Commodore SX-64, Commodore 128, Commodore 128D, Commodore 16, Commodore Plus/4, etc...(new technologies will be included as well).They are some of the most popular computers ever developed and sold--still to this date.

I have been slowly building this site and there are more pages to see and files to access. I have many projects that I would like to add, and as time goes by I will add them.

I have also provided links to other sites that offer quality services or information when I find them. If there is anything you would like to contribute, you can email me and I will evaluate what you have. This site is for improving the quality of the Commodore computing experience.

Also, you will notice the absence of fancy graphics and animations...I have attempted to make this site dial-up friendly and a site overloaded with java crap hogs bandwidth and storage space. This I prefer to reserve for Commodore-related stuff.

* C256 Foenix Project! - Stefany has been busy creating a new (old style) computer!
A prototype was introduced at CRX 2018 this year.
This is worth checking out! You can find it HERE ... awesome stuff!!


- I just recently received an order from I purchased ribbons for my Seikosha SP1000VC and Panasonic KX-P2624. This is still a viable source for ribbons!

* CRX 2018 -. The CRX (Commodore Retro eXpo) was held at the Plaza Hotel in Las Vegas were a number of Commodore entusiasts attended.

* TextConvert - I have created a new program called TextConvert for converting text files to/from Commodore PETASCII on a Windows-based computer. I am asking a small fee for a single user license, but if you have lots of SEQ files on your IBM compatible, this could be quite a handy tool. Also, I have added the capability to read Word Writer 5 and PaperClipIII documents! Click HERE for more information (and access to a shareware version).

Update: Using TextConvert, I was able to read text from a converted GeoWrite file (using ww5 checkbox).

* Web Links - I have noticed an increasing problem with many Commodore-related websites. There are many links to other sites that are no longer valid! I sense a disturbing trend, one which I have been anticipating. The Commodore community is continuing to condense. I have not been able to access CommodoreUSA - rumer is that one of the owners had passed away. While cloaking a PC in classic Commodore-style cases did not impress me, I did hope that there would be more support from them for us who still use authentic equipment.

This site typically provides documents in several formats, mostly .odt, .wpd, .txt, seq, .pdf, and .rtf. Note: For those not familiar with .odt, .odt files were created using NeoOffice (Mac) and OpenOffice (Windows), and LibreOffice (Linix) which you can obtain for free (highly recommended).
