Thanks for all the comments. I was active for a period around 2003-2008 and coded a lot of stuff that never was finished or relased. This scroller was supposed to be me testing if I could make a text+sideborder scroll using the Extended colour mode (get to use $D022-24). It kinda works and would been cooler in a bigger demo. When I was at X I thought I better release a lifesign so I dug out this old thing. Put on a tune by Zeb, who also sadly left us too early, as did Unitrax and last BHF from diabetes which he suffered from but he got a reaction in the night and died in his sleep. Actually all 3 did. Strange for some maybem but I talk to them in my dreams, when I manage to have lucid dreams we meet and laugh and make fun as we used to do. I miss them so, but knowing they await me behind the curtain gives me comfort. Anything else would just be too silly. The universe is order outwards and chaos inwards. Reminds me of how me and Unitrax used to work together. We were so in tune with a similar mindset. I lack the words to describe this magic, some things needs to be experienced to be understood. As for programming again, sure I do no exclude that scenario from my future. I keep myself updated by reading code, thinking out cool routines and I have deep respect for those that know more than me. Inspiration is king. And there is a lot of inspiration happening with new games, demos, technology, etc. I am also a major collector of original games, which is a hobby that I've had for 13 years now. I got my own museum :) amd keeps me on the toes study how the computer game industry grew from 1 person developer of a game - to 3-4 persons on each game. Today there are several hundreds of people working on a game. I think young people are happy to discover old games that were original and educational, perfect for emulators on mobile phoes or pads. I am planning to do either a book project or a video about the C64 timeline. It has to be one video per. year. Else I will never get it done :)
