Retro means old but cool.

I grew up with the Commodore C64 but was never able to master the machine. I was young, I wanted to play the latest games and let other people do the pioneer work on exploring this incredible hardware. Today I have better skills to catch up on what it takes to code the C64. I will share what I learn along the way. Enjoy the trip to the past!

Lost Treasures - The Commodore Production Line in Hong Kong

Good friends of mine from Hong Kong recently started a  company. It turned out that next to their new office, there was a former Commodore production line. They got their hands on a CD with some old photos from December 1992.

The photos were taken by Robert Baker who was in production engineering at Commodore in West Chester, PA and who had been in Hong Kong for a pilot production run of the Amiga 600.

Luckily I also got my hands on some of Roberts original business cards as well - C64-Enthusiasts, look at the cool Fax-Number, all others, note how the email address looked 22 years ago. 

I contacted Robert and he thankfully granted me to put  that photos on the blog. To go full circle to C64-Programming - which dustlayer.com is all about after all - Robert has in fact quite some history with programming our favorite Commodore machine! He has written lots of articles that can be obtained from his website over at http://www.bobnj.com/cbm - check out the archive.
