I spotted a C128, a 1541, and an unknown Commodore box. I'm sure
there's more C= stuff in these pictures. Wish I had space to waste on
a setup like this.
To the right of the 128 is a C64 box. The following picture has a
VIC-20 box. And the last photo's "unknown" box is a Commodore printer.

In the 4th picture, under the TV on the left side. Is this a VC1581?
and next to it a Box like for the Datassette Unit 1531?

No, it is a 1541-II. See the twist-to-remove-disk knob?

NOS computers appears from time to time on eBay. I suggest you to check
there. Vesalia has also occasionally new Commodore hardware for sale.

It is amazing to me that any new stock could still exist from that time

Commodore 64 in Commodore 128's Clothing I found in my pile of old equipment a functional C64 that's in a newer
style C64C case with a Commodore 128 Personal Computer sticker where
the Commodore 64 sticker should go. The motherboard inside is dated
1986 and uses a different keyboard interface than the C128 and C64
brown do. It looks identical to a flat 128 with the exception of it's
depth, numeric keypad and function key placement. Power port is
standard round power.
Anyone ever seen such a varient? It also has a 6567R9 VIC and 6581R4AR
SID. I'll post pics if there is interest.

rare Commodore items and Commodore 64 original games for sale! I have some very rare Commodore related items for sale. For example, a
Commodore paper holding box which I believe is the last one in
existence. Or an original game called BOOM, similar to Katakis, of
which only 15 originals exist world wide. And much more. See here:

When do I need PIC? So I'm pretty sure there's probably no standard that dictates this,
but with regards to the majority of compilers when does one need to
compile a function to be PIC? What I'm interested in is having the
ability to relocate functions from the address they were linked to and
executing these functions from their new locations. I know this
probably depends a lot on processor architecture and compiler, but
what sort of things would dictate whether or not I need to compile
this function to be PIC?
Some things that I think would dictate when I need PIC:
1) Whether or not the function r...
What do you use your Commodore for? I recently stumbled upon this group and was reminded of the good ol'
Commodore sitting in my parent's attic. While I have very fond
memories of writing and operating my own Commodore BBS (some 20 years
ago), I just don't know what I would use it for today. Obviously, most
applications for todays computers are much more advanced than the
application available for the Commodore. Nonetheless, there appears to
be plenty of people keeping the old Commodore alive. Just curious,
what do you use your commodore today?

NIM and spot Hi all,
I'm new to Aix and I am trying to understand how NIM works. I didn't
understand why I need to create spot when I want to perform only
updates ?why lpp_source is not enough ?I apreciate if somenone could
explain in details this process.
Sorry about the last post...in the search field at the top left, type

the purpose of SPOT.
World of Commodore Just recently got back from the WoC here in Toronto. It was nice to
finally put names to faces (Jim Brain, Jeri), and meet some people that
I didn't expect to. :) Also to finally see some hardware (finally saw
a C-1, SuperCPU "in person", IDE64, etc.) The demos were great
(loved Prophet64, and Wings was quite impressive).
Did anybody else from the newsgroup attend? Anybody get any good deals?
And, I overheard a gentleman trying to buy a 1541-II. If you're in Toronto
eMail me and we can chat, I have one here that I'm not using.
PIC macros I need to build a macro file that defines a macro for each of the 35
instructions in the PIC16F84A into equivalent x86 instruction sequence.
I know that I need to look over the architecture of the PIC,
www.microchip.com, in order to emulate the chip in x86. I think I need
to set up data arrays in the data area to emulate the internal
structure of the chip.
The point is that I have never done anything with a PIC and I am a
beginner at x86 assembly. Here are some of the data areas:
Flash Program Memory (1k x 14 bits)
File Registers (68 x 8 bits)
Stack (8 x 13 bits)
EEPROM Data Memory (64 x8 ...

The Commodore UltiMAX I noticed the Commodore UltiMAX from several years ago, and it seems
like a very stripped down version of the Commodore 64. With 2.5KB of
RAM and MAX BASIC (2,047 bytes free), the machine only supports
cassette tapes for storage.
I was wondering if anyone has managed to program any games on the
UltiMAX, either in ML or BASIC? Perhaps some text adventure games on
the MAX? Does the UltiMAX support sprites? I hear it does not support
multi-color mode, only the standard 320 x 200 single color bit
Also, can the UltiMAX be expanded memory-wise? Can I add additional RAM
to the system?

Commodore clones? Hi Everyone,
Richard brought this up and I thought it would be a worthy discussion
We've talked about the C-One vs. C-64 emulation via personal e-mails
and I raised the term "Commodore clone." My question: Is there any
such thing as a Commodore (8-bit) clone? Does the C-One qualify as
such? What's the difference between a x86 computer running C-64
emulation software vs. a C-One.
My argument is that the C-One is, in fact, a "PC computer" with a
65816 CPU and an FPGA instead of a Pentium, etc. Just like how a Mac
is just a PC with a Motorola/IBM processor (n...
Haiku on the Commodore Alrighty,
I'm trying to write a semi-decent 5-7-5 syllable japanese Haiku program
for the Commodore 64.
Problem is...I have no real idea of how large my word list needs to be,
how to grammatically parse the haiku and what words to use in my list.
So...can someone give a few examples of traditional Haiku, how a
computer might generate it and what can be accomplished in 38K of RAM?
The task would be much easier if the haiku didn't have to make sense.

squirrels eat outside

Commodore Memories So how is everyone? Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. Just wanted to
post some random Commodore 64 thoughts:
After all these years, I still cannot believe how good this system is
in such a small package! Wow! With the SID, VIC and other chips, this
system really got me started in computing when I was younger.
I recall trying to "fix" my 1571 disk drive one summer by bringing it
outside and "airing" it out in front of my door (ventillation and all).
We eventually had to send it in for an expensive repair.
My first program on a Commodore 64 was B.C.'s Quest for Tir...
