I have one on the top shelf, in view of my PET work area, new, surplus from a defunct CBM dealer, that I've always been meaning to get around to installing (since about 1992 when it fell into my hands)... > I started first trying to put the kit in my 4016, > after upgrading with a 4032 board, but the 4032 board was bad.

I can see switching being easier than fighting at that point. > The Commodore Tech Notes says you can also upgrade a 4032 using the 64K > expansion kit and wanted to try it for myself.... Interesting. Could you pass along the Tech Note number/date? I have a couple of binders of those myself and would love to look for it. > I also experimented with the process of backing up machine language > cassette programs to disk.

I archived a box of tapes from 1978-1982 a while back (a mix of self-written and commercial tapes) but I did it mostly with an MS-DOS app and a real CBM datasette attached to a PC parallel port (I still have the cable, but I'm not sure where the software ended up). I had success with over 90% of the tapes, but I still have the tapes and wanted to shoot for that last 5-10%. What method are you using to archive your tapes? > One last question - is there a place to download all of the PET User Notes > newsletters? Is there an index someplace? I don't know, but if you get an answer, I'd love to hear it. -ethan Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2009-10-29 03:00:03
