This Commodore 16 Is An NTSC One… No, Wait, It’s A PAL One!


 

Question - ROM based computers other than Atari ST?


I’ve got a question which will help me with Postcards from Cutty. In this setting, most modern computers have backdoors. So, some space colonists use miniaturized retro computers to control spacecraft systems.

Currently, I’m thinking they’re mostly based on the Atari ST because it was ROM based, but also the 32 bit 68K CPU code and address space is adequate for most of the tasks required for spacecraft systems. In contrast, 8 bits are just too limited for a lot of things.

But are there other good possible systems to use instead?

Fundamentally, it needs to be something that enthusiasts could pick apart byte-by-byte and transistor-by-transistor to ensure there are no vulnerabilities. So something a bit “small” is good. And it needs to be able to eat its own dog-food. The entire development system needs to be able to run on itself (so - no specialized microcontroller systems).

And ideally, it needs to be popular enough that there would be an... show more

. The article says, "Commodore sent these computers to companies around the world in the hopes they would decide to support the new platform in the form of creating software and tools."
The original Amiga computer was launched to the public on July 23, 1985, in a legendary demonstration at Lincoln Center in New York featuring the likes of Andy Warhol and Debbie Harry.

Prior to that epic event, however, there was another Amiga - a lesser-known member of the family most have never even heard of. Back in 1984/1985 Commodore created a few hundred “Development Edition” machines called the Amiga Development System. Sometimes, due to a very unique early design, they are also sometimes referred to as “Velvet” which was a name for a particular motherboard layout some had.

Commodore sent these computers to companies around the world in the hopes they would decide to support the new platform in the form of creating software and tools.

Thus, the Development System is a very unique machine most of which have been lost to the sands of time. P

Just some quick #CSF (Client-Side Filter) thoughts:

Some easier stuff that doesn't require persistent shared storage:

1) Post/comment editing : You can edit a post/comment by starting a comment with the line "EDIT". The CSF uses string matching to determine which post/comment this EDIT should replace. (Matches 5 character substrings; the post/comment with the most matches is replaced.)

2) Comment liking : A like is implemented with a comment that looks like "+1 @ user "quoted ... comment". The quoted comment is the start and end of the comment, limited to 20+20 characters.

3) Ignoring comments : Currently, you still see comments made by ignored users. If I can scrape ignored users from https : // pluspora . com / privacy, then it'll be easy for the #CSF to filter out comments made by those users.

4) Personal Hashtags : A personal hashtag l... show more


 
A new sequel to 8-bit Bruce Lee, and it’s mostly keeping the look and feel of the Atari/C64 classic, rather than updating the graphics (the C64, in particular, could do higher resolutions and more colorful detailed graphics).

Yesterday I was at an exhibition on Andy Warhol and I found this stuff.
I didn't expect to see a thing like that in a pictures exhibition, but it was fun.

The computer is responsible for turning the heat and the air conditioners on and off for 19 school buildings.

"The system controls the start/stop of boilers, the start/stop of fans, pumps, [it]monitors space temperatures, and so on," Hopkins explained.

A Kentwood High School student programmed it when it was installed in the 1980s. Whenever the district has a problem with it, they go back to the original programmer who still lives in the area.

Parts for the computer are difficult to find, Hopkins said. It is on its second mouse and third monitor.

New product:

Micromys V5


PS/2 Mouse Interface for Amiga, Atari ST and Commodore 64/128

Micromys V5 is the long-awaited successor to Micromys V4. The new version now supports more computers than ever before: #Amiga, #Atari ST/STe/Falcon, #Commodore VIC-20, #C64 and the Atari 8-bit series. With a total of nine different modes of operation, Micromys V5 is probably the most versatile mouse adapter on the market.

Micromys V5 uses the proven automatic computer recognition of its predecessor without the need for DIP switches. The adapter figures out most computer environments automatically, and choosing a mode of operation is done by holding down one or more mouse buttons during power-up.
