The tool was only for windows though, but he provided the source-code, so I tried porting it to build for Mac OSX (to work on my macbook), so I'll share that effort here, just in-case other Mac users might need it:
If the PETSCII character is A-Z, make it a-z (PETSCII 97-122, subtract 32) If the PETSCII character is a-z, make it A-Z (PETSCII 65-90, add 32) If the PETSCII character is 192-223, subtract 96. Then subtract 32 if the resultant value is 97-122.
And here's another fun trick:
A group called "Style64" has created a TrueType font that maps the PETSCII character set both as screen codes and in the PET ASCII order:
If you add the PETSCII value and $E000, you'll get a Unicode character that matches the PETSCII symbol. You can then write that back out as Unicode text and load it up in a text editor that can handle Unicode.

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
