@Uncle_Jody That is awesome! The Sierra adventure games were a massive part of my youth and I still love the old EGA art from LSL1 / SQ1 / PQ1 era. It's amazing what you could do with 160x200 graphics!

That's a bit sad. As much as I wondered about the legalities of this, it's such a unique thing to have original, commented source code for such an iconic game.

Yes, that's an Amiga 500 in a SX-64 case, called SX-500, apparently created by Hedley Davis back when working at Commodore. It truly was the Wild West of the computer age.

Look! A proper floppy drive emulator for the X68000 machines! The Japanese to English translations from Google are pretty good, and there is hardware available from the link below. Requires some kind of proxy ordering though, as they don't ship internationally.

And on tonight's theme (so it would seem!) there are some die shot canvas prints for sale from Quazar. I was actually looking for a link to this earlier, and failed, then a tweet just showed up. Magic. Christmas presents? Hmmm. 🤔
@DatassetteUser Now that looks brilliant! The SID is a wonderful soundchip. Back in 2003 (and revised in 2014) I released an interface to use SID on the SAM Coupe computer. Also recently had one decapped to photo the silicon for canvas prints > /
