WordPress Commodore 64 Theme Remember the Command Line Interface (CLI) theme for WordPress. Well now there is a theme to convert your WordPress blog into a Commodore 64. Since the the blog has been Boing Boinged, server might be slow/dead but there is an alternative link. I love how Cory puts it … “It’s endlessly fascinating and deliciously pointless”, I cannot help but concur!

    Wow, that brings back the memories! Loved the commodore 64. I was just a kid when I bought my first computer, which of course was the commodore 64. Anyone remember the Amiga? Yep, had one of those too!! Later in life I began building PC’s, which is where I was first introduced to the blue screen of death! ha ha ha

    Thanks,
    John Derrick

    It’s a very nice theme, but it;s very confusing…

    I am sure some people like it,… may not me,… but I like people with “other” ideas.

    Ahh, memories of my family’s first computer. I use to spend countless afternoons in our basement playing Bard’s Tale 3 while listening to Guns ‘n Roses’ Appetite for Destruction with my friends.

    It should be all upper-case by default, or did someone do a POKE 59468,14? :-)

    I’m happy to see most people like it!

    @Kain: There is an upper-case character set included. I just made it default to lowercase since not too many people would get the joke anymore. But it’s there if you want to try it :) . Can’t say I skip the details.

    The theme is extendable too — you can make your own commands. I’d love to see a POKE implemented, but I can barely remember the addresses other that 53280 and 53281.

    Doesn’t actually work anything like a C64, though, does it? It’s just a bash simulator with different colours. Impressive, though.

    I like the comment button and sphere feature of this blog.. anyone know where I can find it to put on my blog here?

    That is one of the ugliest looking things ever.

    Commodore 64 … Wow! Talk about a blast from the past.

    I started out on a TRS-80 (affectionately known by original owners as TRaSh-80s.

    When the Commodore VIC-20 came out, I got that, then the Commodore 64, and later the Commodore 128. There were others after that, then came the 286, a Mac SE-30, then back to PCs because of compatibility issues I needed to be concerned about so I could work from home.

    The good ol’ Commodore 64, though, brings me a smile any day.
