Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

In a new place

Published: Tuesday 2008-05-27.

One time in old times, when I still was studying in Västerås, and was relatively active in the Commodore computer community a project called Project 64 was started, which had as a goal to scan English-language documentation for soft- and hardware for Commodore 64 computers, to save this old documentation from getting lost. Since I also wanted to contribute, but also wanted to expand the focus to documentation for other languages, I started “International Project 64” in 1997.

Both because I wanted to expand the focus to documentation for all computers in the Commodore eight-bit family, and because the name felt like an imitation, the project was renamed to “iDOC=” in conjunction to when I in 1999 moved my web pages here to my own domain. “i” for “international” and “C=” for the Commodore connection. As time has passed, the time I spend on vintage computers has diminished (and at the moment all my old computers are stowed away in the attic), and with it the amount of updates to my Commodore pages.

Since receive scanned documents every now and then, but the amount of time it has taken for me to make them available has been ever increasing, I asked for help from someone who could take the project over some time ago. My call was answered by Mike Naberezny, who maintains the 6502.org website (6502 is the name of the family of microprocessors used in most of Commodore’s eight-bit computers), and from now on iDOC= is available in a new location, and the official address to it is http://cbm.6502.org. Good luck!

*snyft* men samtidigt bra att nya krafter tar vid. Jag hoppas att du inte lagt Commodore-åren bakom dig för gott. Vi har ju t.o.m. ett ofärdigt bilspel tillsammans.
