I got rudely awakened by the postman this morning at stupid o’clock, but once I eventually prise open my eyes, I realised it was worth waking up early :)
I bought these on evilbay purely for the Commodore is Awesome scanning project. What we do over at Commodore is Awesome is we gather as many scans as possible for all Commodore systems. These can be anything and everything from tape/disk and box scans and other interesting Commodore memorabilia such as complete scans of the old Commodore 64 and Amiga magazines you used to read as a kid. If it’s Commodore related we scan it and preserve it for the future. Yes one day in the future all these games will eventually stop loading and will vanish from the face of the earth and then what will you do when you look on ebay one day and there’s no Commodore games anymore? (ok a slight exaggeration but in the very far future this is inevitable and will happen) If I’m still around when this does happen you will thank me for making the website Commodore is Awesome as you will be able to browse through our games section, download the games you want and grab the covers, inlays and manuals for each particular game :)
So this is what I will be doing soon with my spare time, a long and boring process but for the good of retro preservation I think it’s worth it.
