Lending a hand

A good retro mate of mine, Max Hall, has been doing some C64 SID music radio shows on Radio Free Matlock.

His show is called the ‘Chip SID Show’ and a new show is done once a month. You can join his FB support page by clicking the logo above.

Max was hosting the shows in .FLAC format, but as he was using a freebie cloud account, there were a few problems due to their size – weighing in around 2gb for the 7 shows so far – it limited what else he could do with his personal cloud account.

So, to help him out, I’ve converted the .FLACs into .MP3 format and uploaded to my Professional DropBox and freebie Box cloud accounts.

I’ve put the links below in case anyone wants to grab hold of the current collection of episodes.

(Please try to use the alternate links for the various shows. It will help prevent both of my cloud accounts being hammered too much!)

Old Windows trainers found

I was trawling through an old hard-drive last weekend and I found a very old website backup from the early 2000s. Within the folder “trainers” were a lot of my old Windows 95/98 trainers which were mostly done using Trainer Maker Kit.

Grab your VirtualBox / Virtual PC, blow the dust off your Windows 95/98 images and track down (if they can be found) some of these old games and play around with these trainers.

The download link is on my Windows 95/98 page.

There’s still a few (e.g. Tomb Raider 4) where all I have left are the .NFO files inside the .ZIP, but not the .EXE trainer itself :(

They could be out there in the wide world, but then again, there were (and still are) better trainer makers out there whose work would have been preserved more than mine.

Hey ho, I’m glad I found some of them :)
