BasinC 1.7a


This release is an untested alpha release (ok, actually, every basin release might be marked as Alpha).

Not worth for 1.7 glory, you may see some icons missing and some functionalities reduced because I planned to make them better, yet failed to complete all the work. Basinc demands more time that I don’t have.

The project is not abandoned. V1.7 will hit the sinclair basic scene someday in the future 😀

btw. I can accept fancier toolbar icons. Comment or email me if you are interested.

Yours truly,

CSV to MediaWiki as different pages utility


Recently we got into a translating gaming terms into Turkish. As I was setting up a wiki, one of my collegues prepared a wordlist on a spreadsheet. When it was time to import them into the wiki, I realized there is no free alternatives around, so I made one myself.

This program is completely freeware, yet simple.

It takes your csv file, and your wiki page template, and puts them together with a simple replace operation into an mediaWiki compatible XML import file.

Happy wikiing 😀

it’s a educational program which tries to teach old ottoman writing using an amiga. But it seems it’s not doing what it’s intended to do, as there are incorrect representation of old ottoman text.

Anyway, it’s cracked and released for archival reasons.

Brand for sale: Jupiter Ace

Sorry, this article is only available in Turkish.

Sadece çemberin içindekilerin haberdar olduğu bir bilgisayar Jupiter Ace. Yaratıcıları Richard Altwasser ve Steve Vickers. Altwasser, Zx Spectrum, Zx81, zx spectrum +3 ve birkaç amstrad makinesinin de tasarımını yapmış biri. Vickers ise zx80/81 rom’unu yazan ekipten. Bunlar zx81’in çılgın satışlarından etkileniyorlar. “Yahu bu makineyi biz yaptık, sinclair ekmeğini yiyor biz maaşa talim ediyoruz.” mantığından yola çıkarak Jupiter Ace’i tasarlıyorlar.


İşte Jupiter Ace’in hikayesi böyle başlıyor, tarih 80’lerin ilk yarısı.
