Datalife floppies

Datalife floppies…all my self written programs where on these disks back then. I wrote my German assignment on these (topic: nucleair energy, they were building the Kalkar reactor back then, just over the German Border, both assignments done on a Corona PC, the first private computer project from my dad’s work) and I wrote the final assignment for history on this one. Modern History of China, from the later 18th century. Brings back memories.

Books and software

Some of the recent books and software, added to the collection. Bought a Compucase 64D two years ago, and ran into the previous owner. He still had the Dutch manual! And I managed to get a 64SX manual, which I was looking for…paid like 40 euro’s….To find out that one was offered on facebook a few weeks later for 10 euro 🙂 Sometimes it is better to wait 🙂

SAMS Computer Facts & new 3 1/2 floppies

Except for the endless amounts of non working drives and commodores…reacted to quickly when a set of new in box floppies came online… They are not 51/4 floppies but 3 1/2 floppies 🙂

Second I had to order something from Amazon, and there was still something in the basket. I was expecting a book, quit expensive and without looking into it, I just ordered. Nice to have, in a very good state, a SAMS Technical Service Data. But not worth the 50 euro’s I paid, postage including 🙂

Some new cartridges, micro eprommer and sampler 64

Found a sampler 64 with the dutch Kat&Korsh manual, including cables and microphone. Needs some TLC, and these are mostly found without any of the orginal cables. Got my self a Micro Eprommer as well, with the Dutch manual.

Ultimate 64 and RR-Net MK3

Finally received the Ultimate 64 board. Assembly and nerding time! Order and RR-Net as well, and succesfully created the first d64 images to my laptop. Time for preserving the few thousand disks I have!

Had two faulty keyboards/broken keys. Used the keys of a C64C board with the function keys of the C64 for the Ultimate 64.

Commodore Musical Keyboard

The previous version I had of this keyboard was incomplete, paid 50 euro’s for it. Now i had the chance to get a complete version, for 125 euro. Let the one I had go, and now I own a complete one. The box of the actual cartridge just looks like it is never used!

Some early 250407 working rev boards

A few working early Commodore 64’s, we are now in the lower 80.000 range. Nothing special, just for the keeping. The early SID’s, CIA’s and PLA’s are harder to get whenever you do need to repair.
