Re: Best looking 8bit computer?

Yes, really :-) Just take a look at this picture (from Wikipedia). Remember, I'm only talking about looks here. The keyboard is horrible, the single-channel square wave sound ("beeper") comes out of a tiny speaker inside the case, Sinclair BASIC uses a very user-unfriendly system where you...

Re: Datasette data as compressed mp3?

Strange. I've backed up the data from my Akai AX60 analog synth using its tape interface and saved the audio as an mp3 file several times, and I've never had any problems loading the patches back into the synth (the synth is from fairly early on in the MIDI era when when MIDI SysEx backup wasn't ver...

Re: Best looking 8bit computer?

I haven't been here much in the last few months so I missed this poll until now. To me the original 1982 Sinclair Spectrum is the best looking 8-bit computer. Sadly, it's missing from the poll so I won't vote. Any chance of adding it?

Re: Is Vic-20 = THE least powerful computer in history?

If you ask anyone who are even aware of the early home computers, my guess is they'd say the Sinclair ZX81, as several people here have already concluded.

I have a HardSID ISA card for sale. You'd have to supply your own SID chip though since I don't have a spare one. I'm in Sweden but the HardSID is a small item so it shouldn't cost too much to send it to the USA. Make me an offer. I prefer cash since I'm buying a new synth and some other stuff. I'm ...

Why not send the scans to Bombjack too? He'll most likely be happy to put them in the Applications - VIC 20 section.

Apparently I uploaded the assembler to my webspace four years ago:
You'll find the separate PRG files as well as all of them on a D64 Here.

The book (Inside the VIC) is available on Bombjack's VIC-PET-KIM section.

The tape version is actually out there somewhere. I know I have it. The book that came with it is also available as a PDF. I'll see if I can dig them up for you.

As Dusty said, Germany is a big country population wise (and was even back then when the eastern part didn't belong to the Bundesrepublik). I also think the German factories served large parts of Europe. As far as I know, the only European countries Commodore had factories in were Germany and the UK...

WinVICE won't run on Android since WinVice is the Windows port of VICE. But since x64 (the C64 emulator in VICE) has been ported to Android, it probably shouldn't be too much work modifying the source code for that port to make an xvic version. There doesn't seem to be such a port yet, though, altho...
