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.
* 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 Inkfair.com. 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. People of Interest were Jim Brain with a table full of cool stuff, Stefany Allaire introduced a prototype project called the C256 Foenix, and a working C65 was provided (anonymous source) as well!! Check out the links for additional information...

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 There are many links to other sites that are no longer valid!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.|
