Here's some Retro Mac software: Quicklook plugins for SID-files, C64 disk images (d.64/.d71/.d81), and here's another Quicklook plugin for real C64 image formats. Some screenshots are below.

Here's another interesting page: www.doremac.com combines Commodore & Mac, and at Lallafa's Blog you have some more C64 software, including the portation of MacVICE.

heh! tapes were hours of fun!

esp when they'd go bad and look like spaghetti giving a ton of errors

nice to see other members in the 30+ years of age range

Most people are so lazy, they don't even exercise good judgement!

Hack: Asus P5Q-EM, Intel Q6600, Crucial 8GB DDR2, nVIDIA 8800GT/512MB, Optiarc AD-7200S, A few HDs (All SATA), X.5.7 Retail

Into it just for the fun of it...

Age is not the matter, the interests are. I knew a guy who was 13 and interested in old computers - very old computers - in tube radios and a lot of other old stuff. And he could repair things very well. But later he changed totally, I don't have any contact with him anymore.

I'm 33 now, and I used the most common computer systems, C64, Amiga, MacOS 7.5 (on Amiga emulation) MS-DOS, Win98, Win XP and now OS X. But I'm now settling down to C64/C128 and MacOS, and a bit of Amiga if I find time for them.

An important thing is when people are keeping their roots. I never hide my old computers from my history. Without them I wouldn't have made so many experiences in computing. The most kids today start with Windows and a mouse, great. Click, Click, Click and start the game. Older computer geeks had much more to do, and they came earlier in contact with programming, especcially if the computer directly starts with it's integrated programming language - BASIC.

and remembering that everyone has a mind of its own, putting it to use is a good thing.

Geekery aside, what bugs me is spoon-feeding, I guess it has to to do with the click-click, start the program way of thinking.
