Commodore C64 Old & New

Original C64


Most of us should have seen, used or even owned one the old Commodore products back in the day. If it was the VIC20, C64, C128 or even for some lucky ones, the AMIGA.

Well, Commodore USA is trying to make some sort of comback with a new Linux distrobution, trying to capture the joy of the old Commodore range. They are also building new chassis with modern components to look like the old units we came to love and enjoy.

New C64
The new version looks the same, feels the same, but is a modern PC running Linux.

Head over to http://www.commodoreusa.net for more details and download the Linux distro to experience the new Commodore OS.

Netdata + SNMP + Mikrotik

Always wanted to see my Internet line usage as a gauge without having to log into the router.

CasparCG Simple Playlist

It is possible to build a simple playlist as a rundown in the CasparCG client. It will very simply play each item after each other that are on the same layer. In this very simple post I show how to build such a playlist including the very important step of activating the OSC.

The Open Sound Control (OSC) implementation is how the client knows what the server is doing and then being able to send new command back to the server when a piece of media has ended to trigger playback of the next piece. For more details on the OCS, please see http://casparcg.com/wiki/CasparCG_OSC_Protocol
