Software and stuff
Gone. Things didn't work out with Blitz Studio. I'm not interested in changing the site's domain name, however. It's no longer a website for video games, though Blitz Studio only published one...
This is a place for me to host my various programming projects. The current project is 64-DOS, evidently a Disk Operating System for the Commodore 64. Read on to find out more about the project.
I'm almost done writing the terminal program (COMMAND.COM in MS-DOS). In 64-DOS, it's known as DOSTAI (Disk Operating System Terminal And Interpreter). There are a few other components that I need to get started on:
It would take more time than I'm interested in spending to explain why there are two booting stages.
Most likely! I doubt there's a market for this kind of thing, so I'll probably release it free of charge. I might even make it open-source. But that's somewhat less likely. In any case, once it's usable, I'll provide a link for it.
