As EAB is for amiga, and atari-forum is for the ST, what are..

As EAB is for amiga, and atari-forum is for the ST, what are the various main forums for other retro platforms.

ZX spectrum
Commodore 64

Where do retro-programmers and users get together to discuss programming and what-not for other platforms, that you'd recommend for reading material?

While I never had an ST or whatever other Atari computers there were, there are really interesting threads on atari-forum where some dude is working on a port of Quake or Quake 2 or something, and other occasional ones as well. I'd quite like some more reading material for other older platforms that were around when I was a kid. It seems to me as there are main forums for Amiga and ST, there should be others for other platforms I can just go to to read the good stuff all in one place.

If game consoles is of any interest to you there is NESDev for NES development and other technical NES-talk.

For Master System there is SMS Power! which is a very good source for all information of the Master System (and other 8-bit Sega-consoles and computers).

msx.org seems to be the main site for all things MSX, and there's usually some cool development threads going there every time I visit the forums.

For C64 there is also lemon64.com which has dedicated sub forums for new c64 releases and scene-stuff.

Here's an example of the kind of forum topics I am looking for. In it dml, a coder porting Quake 2 to the Falcon, has started rendering levels from HL 2 I think or from the Source engine. Black and white, which isn't really playable, but they still look great.
