Commodore 1702 s-video mod
these days you won't find anything that outputs s-video via two RCA cables. I've seen people make adapters from the standard 4 pin s-video plug to 2 RCA connectors, but I think I have a better solution.

cbm-hackers mailing list: Professional-1541-DOS (was: Re: Big-PET)
"The "Professional-1541-DOS" from Mikrotronic System is an add-on for the 1541 and a C64 or a C128 in C64 mode, which is supposed to speedup all read- and write-operations of the drive. The Professional-DOS is an expansion for an already installed speeder with a parallel cable, like SpeedDOS, SpeedDOS Plus, Floppy Flash User System and Floppy Flash Toolkit System."

Lallafa’s Blog » OpenCBM on Mac
"OpenCBM is a library and a set of command line tools that allow to control old Commodore IEC devices like the famous 1541 floppy disk drive. You can transfer disk image to and from old discs. As modern computers do not provide a IEC connector, OpenCBM allows to control adapters that attach to your PC. Older PCs use parallel port cables (like the XA1541 or XS1541) and newer ones use a USB adapter (XU1541 or XUM1541).

This pages shows you how to use OpenCBM on your Mac. As modern Macs only support USB connectors and no parallel ones, we focus on setting up the XU1541 or XUM1541 devices."

David Simons, the author of Simons' Basic - Commodore 64 (C64) Forum
"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."

Dave Farquhar's Silicon Underground - How to connect a Commodore 64 to a television
"What if you can't find a Commodore video cable? If you're handy with a soldering iron, you can make your own cable with parts from Radio Shack. You'll need a 5-pin DIN plug, two male RCA plugs, and two lengths of speaker wire. Shielded cable like RGU-58 would be better, but isn't totally necessary.

C64 Standard Tape Interface
"This is an interface which lets you connect your C64 to ANY standard Tape Player instead of the custom made C1531 device, which can be hard to get today. Also it means you can connect your C64 to any PC with a sound card and let the PC act as a Tape Player with a perfectly clear sound - so there are no Load errors possible."

GoatTracker - C64 SID music editor for Mac OS X
"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."

The diskette that blew Trixter’s mind « Oldskooler Ramblings
"The manual for Mental Blocks claims that, for both C64 and IBM, you put the diskette in label-side up. I thought that had to be a typo, since every single mixed C64/IBM or Apple/IBM diskette I have ever seen is a “flippy” disk where one side is IBM and the other side is C64 or Apple — until I looked at the FAT12 for the disk and saw that tons of sectors in an interleaved pattern were marked as BAD — very strange usage."
