I made Bo. Bo is a Digital pet fly on Commodore 64 and in this video, I put Bo in several different situations and adventures.

The idea behind this video is to show how small tweaks of the same result in a different output.

Typed in a little #BASIC program I found on the internet to generate some artwork on my #Atari. This took way longer than it should have but scroll through to see what it produced.

Sweet dreams of rhythm and dancing
Sweet dreams of passion through the night
Sweet dreams are taking over
Sweet dreams of dancing through the night

This weekend's agenda:
- play Call of Cthulhu
- find my solder
- start on my RC2014
- read enough of the VisionBASIC manual to be dangerous

There are some days for developers when you just want to POKE 1,0. Today is that day for me...

Good morning Fediverse! Here is your #vintagecomputer picture for today: my Issue Two 48k ZX Spectrum, kindly sent to me by @GedgeHead (we actually did a trade and I sent him some floppy drives in exchange -- that was fun!)

The machine included a large number of tapes, so I dug out my wife's old Panasonic tape player to load some games. Took a few tries, but I got it going. It was fun loading from tape again after 30 years (on my Atari 400, back then). Gedge did a composite mod on it before he sent it to me so I can run it easily on my PAL monitors here in the States.

Later, I sent some photos of the innards to "ZX Wife" (hmm...wonder if she's on Fedi...) who said it was probably originally a 16k Speccy that had been upgraded to 48k.

Hope everyone has a great day. Keep it retro 😎

If you think people complaining about "too many distros" in #Linux is a new thing, here's a 1985 "Computer Chronicles" episode where Stewart Cheift asked, "Why are there so many versions of #UNIX?"

This is Bo -> "
It is my pet fly and he lives inside the . In my next video, I will put Bo in different situations and we can see how he behaves.

I have used up all my data plan for this month, so my speed is capped at 64 Kbps.

This is a friendly reminder to all web developers: Keep your bundle sizes small, only ship what you need, compress your images, YOU DON'T NEED REACT IN YOUR F-ING BLOG, test your sites on slow connections and slow phones.

You using a Galaxy S22 Ultra with an unlimited 5G plan doesn't mean everyone else does too.

Working on Conway's Game of Life implementation in C language for Commodore 64, still trying to speed it up.

For my next video, I had a plan to show a relatively easy way how to improve the 64 power supply. This is the current state of power supply. Looking good so far 😂
