SAM: Software Automatic Mouth
Sam is a very small Text-To-Speech (TTS) program written in C, that runs on most popular platforms. It is an adaption to C of the speech software SAM (Software Automatic Mouth) for the Commodore C64 published in the year 1982 by Don't Ask Software (now SoftVoice, Inc.). It includes a Text-To-Phoneme converter called reciter and a Phoneme-To-Speech routine for the final output. It is so small that it will work also on embedded computers. On my computer it takes less than 39KB (much smaller on embedded devices as the executable-overhead is not necessary) of disk space and is a fully stand alone program.

All you ever wanted to know about the colors of the commodore 64
The whole issue of VIC-II color-emulation is so mis-guiding and irritating, because every c64-emulator uses different palettes and these have been created by using cheap frame-grabbers/digitizers with strange color-behaviour or by moving around some rgb-sliders until it looks quite right. Many people have forgotten how the colors on a real C64 look, because they use emulators for a long time.

"An image of the original game is available for download as a C64 tape-image file. I found this image, pirated, out there on the Internet. The people who did it rather sneakily removed my name, and that of the publisher, from the cracked version that's in circulation, so I've restored them in this version of the image; but if you want the cracked version, you can have it - my feeling is that if it weren't for these people stealing my game, I wouldn't have a running version of it myself. So they can have some credit. "

"In early June, 2006 Prophet64 made the bold move of releasing its SID music software on C64 cartridges. This completed the transition of the C64 from a computer system dependant on floppy and/or tape drives, to an independent piece of pro audio studio equipment. Could the union of Prophet64 with the C64 as a musical instrument be further improved upon? I thought so. The following pages explain what I have done."

"After Simon's basic I went to university and studied computing and economics. From there I joined SCO (Santa Cruz Operation) and worked on their Unix kernel which was something I always wanted to do. I then joined a startup which unfortunately didn't make it but had a lot of fun (implementing an open source J2EE app server). I've since worked for a number of other companies including Sun and I now work for the leading virtualization company."

This means it will work on all modern browsers, being the lastest version of Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari.

"GoatTracker is a cross-platform tracker written by Lasse Öörni, producing SID chiptune music for the Commodore 64, and released with source code under the GPL. It is notable for being possibly the only SID chiptune-composer NOT native to the C64, as many alternative composers (including JCH, and CyberTracker) only execute on the C64 or inside C64 emulators. Many SID tunes are available in various formats on the Internet, especially through the High Voltage SID Collection (HVSC). GoatTracker is capable of directly exporting to the .sid (PSID/RSID) file format in addition to standard C64 PRG files."
