Just purchased this – been having so much fun on Shadow of War lately on the PS4 it’s going to be great to go back to where it all began!
I’ll post this in the increasingly inaccurate ‘Game Of The Month’ category soon, with a bit of gameplay etc.

WiModem For the Commodore 64!

WiModem w/OLED WiModem is an internet modem for your Commodore 8 bit computer that emulates a standard Hayes compatible modem. Just plug the WiModem into the USER PORT and connect to BBS’s all over the world! The WiModem requires access to your local router and supports easy WiFi setup, including WPS one-button setup! Firmware updates are done using a simple command that fetches the latest firmware from the CBMSTUFF.COM server and updates the WiModem – all without ever having to remove the WiMo

The latest addition to the Commodore Conservatory is this little fellow. I remember getting a similar one for Christmas around 1978. I thought I was living in the future! – an expensive and impressive piece of kit for the time. Works beautifully, and I got this on ebay for £2.00 !
