The ISEPIC cartridge was one of the first so-called freezer cartridges, which made it possible to take snapshots of one’s games and programs. Among other things, it was possible to save game saves for games where this was not intended. But the extension could do even more…

Commodore CP/M module disassembled and rebuilt

The Commodore CP/M cartridge was not only infamous from the beginning, but also gained a sad notoriety. Nevertheless, it is a very sought-after module, which is why I completely disassembled mine and made a replica out of it. So everyone can now build such a module himself.

Life really begins at 80…

But remedial action was taken early on with appropriate expansion cards. This time it’s about the B.I.-80 Display Adapter from Batteries Included. It’s time to treat this card to a replica.

Since such hardware is getting rare and hard to get, I rebuilt the board.
