Achim Volkers has come up up with a funny third edition of On The Farm, called On the Farm 3 – Sheep Invasion. This time it’s a greedy seagull who is the star in this cute and rather funny episode of the On the Farm series. Poop at those sheep so you can have the crops, but watch out for Farmer Rich and his pet eagle, Edgar. Bomb Shep for extra abilities, which will wear out after some time.

|Our new C= 64 baseball cap is now available||AUG 14 2008|
You asked for it, and we made it! Our new C= 64 baseball cap of course pays hommage to a certain computer brand who?s name we cannot mention for legal reasons! As we couldn?t use their logo for copyright reasons, we had to come up with something of our own, and we think our design team really nailed it.
This fantastic cap comes in the colour of French Navy Blue with White stripes on each side. Our infamous C= 64 logo is beautifully embroidered in White thread on the front of the cap.
Available on our website now: www.kubi.co.uk

|Commodore Bankruptcy – via The Register||APR 20 2008|
Commodore International is close to folding. The Dutch company that owns the brand was declared bankrupt this week, but a spokesman said it will appeal the court order.
The original Commodore International, an American company best known for the legendary Commodore 64 computer in the 1980s, declared bankruptcy in 1994. However, the brand refused to die.
German retailer Escom paid $14m for Commodore International and the brand was then taken over by Tulip Computers in the Netherlands. In 2004, Tulip sold the Commodore name to another Dutch firm, Yeahronimo. In the past three years the company has tried to capitalise on the Commodore brand with new products such as joysticks, gaming and video players.
While Commodore is listed on the US over-the-counter market, most operations are carried out from the Netherlands. After disappointing sales of its ambitious Gravel line of personal media players, the firm shed many employees in recent months.
Unsurprisingly, Commodore expects its figures for FY 2007 to be substantially lower than previously estimated. Commodore is expected to announce a ?10m loss at a shareholders? meeting in Amsterdam next Friday.
More trouble lies ahead. Former employees have threatened Commodore with a lawsuit to secure back-payments. And last month Commodore lost a court case against a former partner called Phillar. That company, which was to develop a navigation tool with Commodore, was poorly paid and says it will now seek ?9m in damages.
At least three Dutch creditors are demanding an undisclosed sum from Commodore. They went to the bankruptcy court this week in an effort to recoup the debt. Commodore says it wasn?t consulted when bankruptcy was filed and will seek a solution. Official receiver JJ Dingemans told The Register that if Commodore can pay its creditors, he will advise the court to lift Commodore?s litigation.
Commodore claims its daily operations are not affected by the legal battle. Its branding company has no personnel. Other activities, such as gaming PCs, are run from different companies.
Tomorrow, a Commodore Day is held in the Netherlands, but to remember Commodore?s golden past, not its recent demise. ?
Read The Full Article and Comments at:
Owners of C= brand did nothing interesting for C= scene (demoscene) or former user base at all. All they attempted to do was catching on the wave of mainstream which didn?t succeed. In my opinion. Past years and latest happenings doesn?t affect anything concerning C= scene (demoscene) at all and it has less impact (as far as covering in scene / mainstream media is concerned) than e.g. Timbaland?s blatant rip-off of GRG?s cover of Tempest?s Acidjazzed evening.

It has been a great pleasure to work with those nice people in Crypt, but sadly what has been happening recently (The releases, etc) has forced me to step down. Secondly, to concentrate on my own stuff. I will still stay in contact with those great sceners though.“
Secondly, I would like to say thanks for the support from Crypt members. My C64 days are still not over. It is just TND from now on.

|New C64 cartridge cases from individual Computers||MAY 29 2006|
Our cartridge cases for Retro Replay, MMC64 and other standard C64 cartridges enjoy great popularity, therefore we have made a new production run with a few improvements. The cases that we delivered previously were made out of the fairly soft plastic polystyrene. To further improve the quality and stability of dimensions under extreme climatic conditions, we decided to use the harder plastic polycarbonate.
In addition to the known colours black, blue-transparent and clear-transparent, the new colours red-transparent and solid blue are now available. Even though polycarbonate is much more expensive than polystyrene, we did not raise the sales price. We even took away the price difference for the different colours, so each case is now 4,– EUR incl. 16% VAT (plus shipment cost, please inquire by eMail). There’s only two quantity scales: The single price for purchases of up to 99 units, and 15% discount for orders of 100 units or more. Colours can be mixed in order to reach the quantity scale.
The cases are closed with only one opening for the cartridge connector. If a cartridge with buttons or a pass-through slot shall be used, the holes/openings must be cut into the case. This applies to both the Retro Replay and the MMC64.
If you order the bundle with Retro Replay and RR-Net, you can now choose from these case colours. Wordwide shipment is already included in the bundle price of 100,– EUR for the three items! See a picture of the available colours here.To order, please use our contact form.
