does anyone know where I can find old magazines with the, I guess source code, to make a game or program for the 64? I recently got a 64 on ebay, and I remember the magazines when I was a kid and had a 64.

I have some program listings copied from mags, if you want I can scan some.

Hi, I recently found in the trash a Commodore 64 and 128, monitor, floppy drives and cables to connect them all and amazingly they all work (it was raining that day). I have a simon's basic cartridge and my son has expressed and interest in learning to program and I was wondering if someone had some print outs, source code text files of some programs he could have to try out various things. Unfortunately I can't find any of my old commodore stuff anymore (too many moves most likely got in the throw pile not the keep pile).

New Member today. Used to have a commodore computer - well I went from a vic 20 to a C64 to a 128. But that was too many years ago.

Thanks for any help

Depending on where you are I could shuffle some copies of stuff your way, or scan then and email them.

Scanning would work the best if that's not too much trouble - I'm in Wisconsin if that helps any.

I often see scanned documents where the back of the page is bleeding through to the front.
There's a simple fix to help minimize that effect.
Every time you scan a page, put a piece of black construction paper behind it.
The black paper will help soak up the extra light, rather than reflect it back and cause a ghost image.
