After fettering with my C64 recently I've noticed that most of the software I own is pretty much crap! I know there's so many amazing titles out there but I simply don't have them on physical disks, and good as emulators are it doesn't beat using the real deal at all. And with that, I'm strongly considering building a run of XA1541 cables. As I'm sure you all aware, these let you connect a real 1541 or equivalent drive to your PC via a parallel port, where you can then write disk images to real disks, or create disk images from disks, whatever floats your boat.
Not sure on pricing but likely wouldn't be much, not much to 'em. Any expressions of interest here, if a few guys want em I'll order plenty of bits and make a heap.
Just the local Commodore hobo and middle-aged PC hoarder.
eisa on Trademe. A lasting reminder of a Compaq fetish when I was younger.
