zip4 C64 User Port to Centronics Parallel Cable Pinout

Sometimes when you're looking for something with Google, you run across something unrelated but interesting.  Apparently there are two cartridges for the Commodore 64 that supported printing to a Centronics  printer through the User Port using a custom cable; The Final Cartridge III and Action Replay.  I couldn't find any details other than this schematic and the note at the top, but think I'll file it away for later reference.

Did I mention that Dot-Matrix printing is making a come back?  Ya... probably not.  FYI, the download image is much clearer than the preview.

zip16 PETSCII - A Character Set and a Creative Platform

Was Googling for some instructions on TBoard Painter and went down a rabbit hole.  I found this interesting article from "Replay - The Polish Journal of Game Studies" by Markku Reunanen, Tero Helkkinen and Anders Carlsson.  I'm not sure if it's OK to re-distribute, so if it isn't, someone please tell me and I'll remove it.  I believe the official source for this is HERE for those interested.  Here is an Abstract:

PETSCII is the built-in character set used on 8-bit Commodore computers, such as the PET, C-64 and Plus/4. The character set and the BASIC environment provided an entry point to rudimentary graphic editing for a generation of hobbyists. Over the years PETSCII has been used for a variety of creative purposes: for example games, demos, telecommunications, videos, books and fine art have been created using the graphical symbols. Through the analysis of existing art works and our own hands-on project – a graphics editor – we dig deeper into the specific properties of the character set. In this article we show how the fixed symbols set the frame for what is possible and how, on the other hand, they provide grounds for creative experimentation, display of skill and recognizable styles.

zip18 The Canonical Collection of Light Bulb Jokes

The Canonical Collection of Light Bulb Jokes - Yes you read that right, this is a 15K (6K Compressed) collection of nothing but light bulb jokes someone took the time to type into four sequential files.  I feel like these need to be shared with the world, so to wet your appetite, I'll share just one of the dozens of jokes inside the archive:

Q: How many data base people does it take to change a light bulb?
A: Three: One to write the light bulb removal program,one to write the light bulb insertion program, and one to act as a light bulb administrator to make sure nobody else tries to change the light bulb at the same time.
