    Thanks.

    It's a good time now to exercise social distancing, to play on your
    Commodore computer or using an emulator.

    If one seeks for companionship, the VICE emulator offers "netplay", where
    one starts VICE with this option and loads a game, acting as server. And another user starts VICE as client. But so far I had no luck and
    VICE crashed whenever a friend connected to me.

    Be all safe, stay at home and kill some time with retro gaming, until the threat is over.

    Thanks. Its getting real slow at work. I work on the services side of
    an auto dealer. We are still open, but we are getting fewer and fewer customers.
    Other than that, staying home has allowed me more time working on my C64 BBS. Calling out to other boards and enjoying BBSing all together.
    Just downloaded Striketerm and will be trying it on my C64 and see how it does on some of the C64 and Amiga boards. It says it does 40 and 80 columns. We will see.

    I have a backlog of 64s and Plus4s that need some love. A good cleaning, some retrobriting and some new caps should keep me busy for the next few weeks.

    Please don't retrobrite the Plus4s. ;-) Assuming the 4s is also black.
