Tangentially-related to my ongoing Commodore 128 series, I got quite the surprise on Mastodon this morning! My post about troubleshooting my Commodore 128’s 80-column mode was submitted to the news site.

Further Commodore 128 posts are on hiatus while I wait for international shipping to deliver some more parts. I miss living in Singapore and being able to go to Sim Lim Square and Tower for all manner of assorted components. I even got a 6510 and a Z80 from an IC shop as recently as a few years ago, just because.

Thanks to ethoh for sharing, and Screenbeard for inviting me, and hello to all of you who’ve made it to my esoteric, disjointed corner of the web! I’m a bit weird, but mostly harmless.
