These are sites with more information about Commodore hardware, software, history, and other things I find interesting. These are in no particular order. Please e-mail me with any dead links, changes in the descriptions, or new additions. We welcome all new friends!
Joe Forster's Home Page
This is a treasure of information from one of the pioneers of interfacing Commodore equipment to PC's. His Star Commander program is an invaluable resource. His pages contain information on building all the cables and adapters you might need, and he also sells them pre-made in his online shop. They are top quality (it's what I use) and highly recommended.
Ray Carlsen's Home Page
A great guy who offers his repair advice and database free and can help you get that old Commodore equipment back up and running.
A huge, all encompasing resource for C64 games. They have collected and cataloged more than 17,000 different C64 games with screenshots, publishers, and notes about each one.
The Software Preservation Society
Formerly known as C.A.P.S. (Classic Amiga Preservation Society), this team is now archiving all forms of old floppy media. They are beginning to support other formats besides the Amiga, possibly even the C64 in the future.
Dr. Markus Brenner's (Minstrel's) Commodore Page
Markus has made great contributions to the C64 archiving scene with his original MNIB and MTAP tools. He also contributed code to VICE and other projects. Our archiving tool is a derivative of the last released version of the MNIB project and still bears that name in his honor.
A great emulator by Per Hakan Sundell is a lightning-fast cycle-exact implementation of the C64 and drive that runs pretty much everything we throw at it. It now even supports "weak-bit" protection needed for some tough protected titles.
VICE is an open source Commodore emulator. It emulates the C64, C128, VIC-20, and various PET models, as well as all their peripherals.
The most comprehensive source for Commodore Computer manuals on the internet. Here you will find manuals for everything Commodore, from games to hardware.
Peter Scheper's pages
Includes information about his 64copy tool, the F64 format (now defunct), and more information about adding a parallel port to the 1541. Peter now builds and sells transfer cables as well.
F. Yarra's site has many interesting articles about copy protection and alse features an archive of old copy programs.
The Commodore Knowledge Base
Technical articles, repair notes and documentation about Commodore 8-bit computers. Contains lots of historical documents that are very interesting.

The Ultimate C64 Tapes Page
A different tape archival project.
Contains reviews and discussions of C64 games and scene demos past and present.
