Is it time to fly yet?
You know the boat electrical repairs are getting serious when the bench power supply gets moved in.
Wrapping up a week with the VIC: Unexpanded VIC with a keyboard version of Breakout. Getting a fair amount of help from machine language here, but it’s a very playable (and simple to code/understand) version. LOVED this week with the VIC and appreciate it even more! #VICtober
A week diving deeper with the VIC-20 day 6: Pretty much the best graphics of any computer ever made. #VICtober
I’m thinking seriously about doing #nanowrimo2021 with ONLY these tools
Or possibly this
Got an Apple II 80 col/64k expansion card failing a RAM diagnostic. I have at least 4 testers for this type of RAM and plenty of spares.
One bad RAM chip and it’s good as new.
A week diving deeper with the VIC-20 day 5: Smooth scrolling isn’t too hard. Getting close to the end of my week with the VIC and I appreciate it even more than I did when I started. #VICtober
10 minute lunch break “learn something”: More of the “AI” book – Breadth first searches are nice and zippy. Apple IIe for this one
A week diving deeper with the VIC-20 day 4: The VIC-20 is a graphics powerhouse ;-) #VICtober
On today’s episode of stupid races between old computery things: A brute force tree solver on a Commodore 128 in 80 column mode vs a VIC-20. The 128 is easier to visualize what it’s doing, but as expected, WAY slower. #commodore #VICtober
A week diving deeper with the VIC-20 day 3: While not as visually interesting, implementing tree searches to solve shortest path problems is fun for my brain, just maybe not your eyeballs. #VICtober
