Welcome to my blog!

Hi everyone,

welcome to my blog!

This blog will contain notes about the personal projects I am working on. The main focus will be my favorite hardware namely the Commodore 64 and Apple’s Macs and the emulation of the first one on the second machine.

As I am the current maintainer of the Mac port of the VICE Commodore Emulator Suite, you will find here in depth information on running this software.
