On the web, you can do other stuff while reading an article. On a BBS, get distracted and it will kick your ass off!

Playing around with the BBC Micro core on the MISTer FPGA.

Munchy..an interesting pseudo-3D take on Pacman with a couple of twists.

Playing it on the MISTer in the ZX core in +3 mode (it's actually a 128 game). Plays perfectly with full joystick support!

Seen at Gateway Electronics this weekend. If I'd had any machines with ISA bus I would have picked this up on the spot.
I'm still thinking about going back this week and picking it up anyway.

November 13 2018 Seattle Commodore Computer Club Meetup #6 Notes. We has some AMAZING hardware on hand, folks. Some (no joke) museum worthy stuff. sea-ccc.org/2018/11/14/novembe

The Uthernet II Ethernet card showed up today for my Apple IIe. I just got it installed in slot 3.

The cable routing is a bit weird with the forward-facing ethernet jack, but I'm glad it has a tiny footprint, or it wouldn't fit next to the Super Serial card like this.

I should plug one of Paul's modems in there and measure it. I'd bet it draws less (no screen, etc).

Todays project, made a cable.. micro USB on one end, DB9F on the other to power my WiModem232 from the barcode reader port on my TRS-80 model 100 so that I don't always have to have an external battery hooked up to the modem.
.
The barcode reader port (made for an old-style light pen barcode reader) puts out a really nice 5V on pin 9 of the DB9 port.
This Wimodem232 usually draws about .05 amps,( 50mA). The port easily handles it as long as I have good batteries in the model 100.

At the antique mall last week. Ultraman was not cheap.

Bonus points for having the Science Patrol on the box.
