This is the place to discuss our glorious C64/128 machines and their very active scenes. Other C= 8-bits welcome, too!

Recent spelunking on the 8bit side of the internet and I stumbled on this neat project from http://c64os.com/

This was heroic effort to convert a standard breadbin to a all-in-one luggable unit. A hand made SX64 of sorts. What I really appreciated was the great lengths the maker went to document the journey-both good and bad. This project made its debut at the WoC 2018 up in (insert cliché adjective here) Canada. I thought this was a very cool project and deserves some visibility.

Maybe one day I'll find some derelict Amiga hardware and build a portable case around it. But...not sure I can bring myself to go that far when there are legit new cases available today.

If you get a chance to check out his site, be sure to dig through his catalog-which is mostly placeholders atm but it did offer a few items of interest-including this fine set of patches to support his hobby work:

Sweet patches bro. One of these is destined for my ESD coat to wear at work :D


If you have some leisure reading time, I highly recommend you go check out his work!

Regards,
Toast.

Oh yeah - this project is legendary. Gregory Nacu's a very cool dude, too. I'll have to pick up one of those patches, too - those look great.
