It’s been almost 20 years since I last developed anything for the Commodore 64 in either BASIC or assembly language. I had been toying with the idea of getting my machine out in recent months and revisiting some of my old programs to see how my code design back then stacked up against my skills of today. Last weekend, I attended the Syntax ’13 demo party here in Melbourne and walked away convinced that I MUST pull my C64 out, revisit the system and work on producing a demo to submit at the next Syntax demo party to be held sometime late in 2014.
The About page covers this in more detail, but at it’s core, this site will act as a blog (or diary) of my progress as I revisit the C64 in an attempt to produce a demo for next years Syntax demo party. It’s been a long time since I touched a C64. There is much information forgotten and many skills I never picked up even back then. The next 12 months should bring some exciting developments for myself and submitting a demo at an official demo party will fulfill a dream.
At this point I still need to sort out a proper logo for the site, along with a few accounts like github, twitter, etc. But the first step has been made and I will begin to make more posts as I dive back into C64 BASIC and assembly language over the coming months.
