Acquisitions, Interests and Projects


  • Rob's Diagnostic Program
  • The MicroDoctor Diagnose64 (Todd accidentally called this the Doctor64 in the audio)
  • Earl's Pi1541
  • Playing 'Daisy Daisy' on 1541 Stepper Motors and then the same thing running on a Pi1541 (It's ridiculous that this works!!!)
  • And a link to a D64 of the above in case you want to run this on your own hardware. Rob has run it on a real 1541 many times with no ill effects, but it's clearly abusing the 1541 to some degree, so run at your own risk. :)

    Show 014 - The Lost Episode

    Editor's Note - This episode of the podcast was recorded in September of 2017, over a year before it was published here and to the feed. Most of the content is still highly relevant (and awesome, if we do say so ourselves). We have nicknamed this "The Lost Episode". Enjoy!
