I've asked the seller about the story of this Commodore monitor:

Quote:
...I bought it used a few month ago, with a bunch of other Commodore stuff. It works but the power switch was broken. Thats is quiet normal for the 1084. So, I replaced it with an fitting but better one. As I opened the case, I expect that there is no dust and no dark colors at the walls in there. That means it could only a few days in use. All cpacitors lock fine also, so it is like a new one...

I've bought for 20,31€ another cartridge for my C64: "Buck Rogers: Planet of Zoom"
I actually have got 22 cartridges -some modern, some old- plus this one.

Bought Motorhead (it was really hard to find). Music in this game was by Ben Daglish. Sadly he passed away

Bought also Traps'n'Treasures (english), second copies of Gauntlet III and Pegasus.

Can I see the inside of this, if you do open it? I've always wondered what the internals looked like!
(I always wanted one as a kid!)

Imho, Imagic's Moonsweeper was and still is the better game.

Well, since you can't get Moonsweeper for a C64, congrats. The price seems to be pretty reasonable for a C64 cart.

I should be picking up my first Sinclair machines today.
Found a craigslist posting for a ZX81 and a TS1000 (Double the RAM!!! ).
I've been meaning to add one or the other to my collection.
I never owned either back in the day, but the kit ZX81 was the first computer I wanted and tried to get my parents to help me buy. They said no.
(Probably the kit thing, as I did not at that time own (or had ever used) a soldering iron. Probably a good call on their parts..)
I eventually ended up with a Vic20 as my first computer, but my first computer "want" was the ZX81.

The ultra rare Bone Cruncher for Amiga for 200 EUR.. JK .. I wish though... I'd love to get a pristine original of this classic game...

Instead I've spent a fortune on (hard needed) clothes... Not as exciting though..

Still concidering to get an XBOX One X for Red Dead Redemption 2..... Choices, choices, should I or shouldn't I.

I bought a Switch and Breath of the Wild a couple of years ago, it's been collecting dust ever since I finished Zelda.. (superb game though).
Not sure one game justifies the purchase of (yet another) a console.....

Awesome, I got an ACE HD too a few weeks ago. Gave up getting it to work with my BenQ monitor though and bought myself an OSSC, which after a very short initial test seems to work great, but requires some tweaking still!

I just got ACA1221ec and Indivision AGA MK2cr. Makes quite a difference, and looks really good on my Dell 2001FP.

Yeah, the OSSC is a great thing once you've done setting it up properly. Remember to flash the firmware before spending too much time on it as you'd have to start over if you decide you want to update it.

Today I am picking up a RetroTINK 2x to complement the OSSC which basically expands it with composite and s-video support so now I no longer need to rely on my Dell 2001FP monitor any longer and can have close to perfect picture quality on all modern screens with any of my retro computers. :-)

Got em last night!
1 ZX81, 1 TS1000, 1 Sinclair 16k RAM Pack, 2 printers (1 Sinclair and 1 Timex Sinclair), 1 original power supply, and several rolls of paper.


I checked the power supply and then hooked them up.
Both power up and have a display on my TV (color CRT) downstairs.
The TS1000 has a pretty good display, but numbers 1-5 on the keyboard don't work. (I expected keyboard issues, so not too worried.)
The ZX81, the power connection is really bad. That power jack needs to be tightened or replaced. When I got it to make enough contact, I did see a picture and could tell it was working, but it wasn't a great picture. I am guessing it is just the earlier ULA that doesn't work as well with more modern TVs.
As I plan on composite modding them, I am not too worried about that.
I did test the keyboard, and at least the keys I tried worked, but it was a pretty bad image so I didn't test all the keys.
All in all, I am really happy as they are in great looking shape.
I'll see if I can repair the keyboard (cutting the ribbon down a bit). I think I'll also buy a new keyboard (or 2?) as the new ones are pretty cheap.
Can't wait to get into them some more, but I have to wait a bit, as my next project is to try to fix the audio on my Amiga 1000.

Darn too many projects!! ;-)

Just received a Micromys V4. Excellent little bit of kit that I've used to replace my old Cocolino. The Cocolino had died after many years of constant use, but was a little flaky when it came to use with my KVM, requiring a particular startup order and being a complete pain if it didn't start up properly. The Micromys just works, no issues with the KVM, and also supports the mouse wheel, which I had really been missing!
