Ultima I on the Commodore 64 was difficult in the beginning, but if you were careful and survived the earlier parts of the game it got less difficult to survive exploring at least.  It was an extremely fun game once you got the survival part nailed down.  I went back to play it on my Commodore 64 last year and forgot how hard it was to stay alive as you traveled.

I have some projects I would like to accomplish with either a Raspberry Pi, or similar device that requires it to boot in to the original OS, I have a broken Vic-20 and a Sinclair 100 that I would like to fit in those cases and boot to the original basic and use the original keyboards.  Is it difficult to build a controller to go between the Pi and the original keyboard?

+Charles Faust - the easiest way of doing that is to use an atmel avr that supports the USB interface. you can then create your own HID keyboard. see these links:

If I were a Republican I'd just wish he and his wife would just die already so we can be rid of them for begging.  Hopefully he'll learn something from all this, but I also hope he and his wife make a full recovery.

States control food stamps now anyway, so he's blaming something states might have done on the Federal Government.  Obama before he was elected the second time, put the responsibility of work requirements square on the state level.

I have a DAC (improves video as well) for a Commodore PET, it will plug in to a Commodore 64 but I haven't tried using it on the 64 for fear of breaking it.  I have a few questions if anyone is able to help me out.

1.  Are the pin-outs on the PET and 64 the same?
2. I can't find a DAC for PET on eBay, so is it even worth anything if I blow it up.
3. Is there someone I could send it to, and get it back from if I pay for postage/shipping, that has a PET they could test it on for me?

I found documentation for it via a manual (PDF) and a product catalog (PDF) which I can send along should someone be willing to test it for me.  If it does what it says it does, it might be worth me finding a PET to plug it in to and mess around with.

I'm a hardware guy in the IT world, so I really dig unusual hardware, I'll be cleaning out some duplicate stuff in my collection soon.  I know for a fact that I have an Atari 520 STM that I will be parting with, but I don't have the external power supply or an external floppy drive to go with it.  I have a 520 STFM with the built in PSU, 1meg RAM upgrade, and built in Floppy drive that works, so I don't really need the STM.

There is very little information on the DAC, as it was pretty expensive for its time, I'm guessing that it didn't sell as well as they had anticipated, so there aren't many of them out in the wild now.

From personal experience, I refuse anything from Geek Squad, I quit shopping at Best Buy years ago after they tried pressuring me in to buying all kinds of stupid shit to go with a laptop I was getting to take with me to the NCO academy years ago.  The person I was dealing with couldn't even locate a laptop with the brand of processor in it that I wanted...   That was in 2004, I knew what I wanted, and that laptop is still running to this day WITH Windows 7 on it, and a RAM upgrade to 4 gigs, nothing else was done to it.  You get to keep your stuff longer if you DON'T let Geek Squad get their hands on it.
