I'm starting to feel that some users might want to make edits and additions in the wiki. Just pondering what to do about this. Right now, I'm a bit timid to open up access to the wiki, as it's hosted on my server-space.
But I'm open to moving the wiki onto one of the free wiki-hosting sites, then giving open access and just have a few of us here to moderate it.
Not sure when I'll get the time to do this, but if someone has the motivation to make it happen, you're welcome to.
Till then, just ping me if you want something added, and I will credit you, and reference that the insight/knowledge came from you.
I'm just about to do as such for Tom, he shared some insights, will add now
Is the content in a form that can be put into GitHub? You could put together a script to export into the site and then accept pull requests for content. That way, people can contribute and you maintain full control.
Right now it's a dokuwiki. GitHub's wikitags can be subtly different, not that I mind re-jigging things if needed.
Well, I'll be open to it, but I'll also keep open the option of another wiki where users can edit directly. I suppose it works for wikipedia that way, a completely open system, so maybe it could work for us too...
synchromesh: Anyone know why thec64.com is down ?

DG5KR: When I was young I felt like the world was turning faster. The C64 was a world full of adventure. First Basic, then Assembler, playing incredible games with friends. It was the best time of my life.

j.: @lordvico - I've noticed this with lots of games. I wondered if this was a PAL vs. NTSC thing and also wondered why the screen type wasn't translated for me.

j.: william - don't pull the joystick. If you need to pull to insert a USB stick - get a USB hub so you can have both plugged in at the same time. One way to save would be to use the game save-state feature. This would be the easiest to do for 4 or less

william: So far I am pretty frustrated using the BASIC. Every time I pull out the joy stick to put the usb into the machine it pops out of BASIC and goes back to the main menu. How does one write a program in BASIC and save it?

eBUG: Hmm how about the C64 makers include some Pascal software and other creative software in addition to games in the carousel ? :-D
