Don't Crash This Server :) Web page served by a plain vanilla C64
Posted 02 December 2009 - 06:03 PM
I have been toying with the idea of putting my Commodore 64 back on the Internet just for fun. Years ago, I spent hours using the C64, Amiga 1000, and Amiga 500 on the Internet in text mode. I had a dial-up account and a 2400 baud modem on the C64 and the Amigas. There is now a graphical browser for the C64. I still have all these computers, and a Timex Sinclair that preceded the C64.
I also used my C64 with a VT100 emulator to run programs on my employer's IBM main frame.
I don't want to spend any money to buy a C64 Ethernet adapter. I think I can share the Internet using Linux on another computer with a serial cable.
Don't crash this web page served by an ordinary C64: http://126.96.36.199/

Woo-hoo! M-O-O-N, that spells "Nebraska"! The Stand

GEORGE: Yeah! Look at me! I was free and clear! I was living the dream! I was stripped to the waist, eating a block of cheese the size of a car battery!
JERRY: Before we go any further, I'd just like to point out how disturbing it is that you equate eating a block of cheese with some sort of bachelor paradise. Seinfeld
