Home page

The British flag This site contains all kind of information about hardware and software related to the older Commodore computers like the KIM, PET, CBM, VIC-20, C64 and C128. In 2011 I started to take interest in Commodore PCs and IBM PC-XT (compatibles) as well. Later other interests were added to the ones I already had.
The information is only available in English.

The Dutch flag Deze site verstrekt U allerlei informatie over zowel hardware als software van de diverse Commodore computers: KIM, PET, CBM, VIC-20, C64, C128 en anderen. In 2011 ben ik mij ook gaan intresseren voor de Commodore PCs en IBM PC-XT (compatibles). Later zijn er andere interesses bijgekomen.

I have been rather ill and that changed quite some things.

What exactly I got the doctors and I still don't understand. I must have eaten something wrong, that's for sure, and I lost about 8 KG. When you weight 90 KG originally, then that is not a small difference. OTOH, I had some overweight and that made the difference between being good ill at the end and half dead. I'm sure that the extra overweight gave me the energy to do still something, even it was just sitting in my lazy chair and working on my laptop.

In general I was able to finish the designs of three of my hardware projects:
  • Debugger-LPT
    An hardware debugger for your computer but not using displays but a LPT port or an Arduino for displaying the results. PCBs of the board and modules have been received.
  • 65816-ATX
    A computer based on the WDC65816 on an ATX board, including eight ISA slots. PCBs has been received.
  • Mini-V20
    A very small computer with as main components an 8088 or NEC V20 in minimum mode as CPU, 512 KB of SRAM, 128 KB of FlashRAM, a 16540 UART as its only I/O IC and one 8-bits ISA slot for expansion. PCBs has been received.
For other projects, please see: My main projects.
