Deadly SentryANOTHER VISITOR! STAY A WHILE…

Welcome to my website, dedicated to my favourite pieces of computing technology, the Commodore 64 and 128. These two machines are where my fondness for computing began and where I have a lot of happy memories.

I'm not a master programmer of BASIC or 6510 Assembly, nor am I an 8-bit gaming wizard. I'm just a regular guy who still enjoys tinkering and playing on his Commodore computers. I still use my C64 and C128 today and on these pages I'd like to share the fun things that I continue to learn about them .

And, in case you're wondering what model of 64 I like the most, well that would be the one inside my 128! :-D

I'm hooked on Lulu!

They did such a great job on my reprint of my first programming book, “Using The Commodore 64 In The Home”, that I decided to go ahead and produce another book for my Commodore collection.
