Mermaid's computer collection

Mermaid has one impressive collection of Commodore computers. Some of it is depicted here:

A small part of Mermaid's collection. Commodore 116 with serial number 123, still in its original box. A Retro Replay cartridge in disguise; the case is originally from a The Final Cartridge II.

AD IEC-ATA interface

We tried out Asbjørn Djupdal's IEC-ATA interface with a spare disk that I brought along. After figuring out that the disk was jumpered as slave we got it to work, but it was a bit disappointing that it didn't work together with either the Retro Replay, a TFC III or even with JiffyDOS. The only utility cartridge that worked was an Epyx Fastload, but that's just because it does not try to accelerate device 10 (which is the number for the hard disk.

What's a C64 party without a demo? TDS is working hard on his music collection Laconic.
