A bulletin board system or BBS (also called Computer Bulletin Board Service, CBBS) is a computer server running software that allows users to connect to the system using a terminal program.
The Commodore 128, also known as the C128, C-128, C.
The Commodore 64, also known as the C64 or the CBM 64, is an 8-bit home computer introduced in January 1982 by Commodore International (first shown at the Consumer Electronics Show, in Las Vegas, January 7–10, 1982).
A computer file is a computer resource for recording data discretely in a computer storage device.
The D-subminiature or D-sub is a common type of electrical connector.
A disk operating system (abbreviated DOS) is a computer operating system that can use a disk storage device, such as a floppy disk, hard disk drive, or optical disc.
An edge connector is the portion of a printed circuit board (PCB) consisting of traces leading to the edge of the board that are intended to plug into a matching socket.
Florida (Spanish for "land of flowers") is the southernmost contiguous state in the United States.
A hard disk drive (HDD), hard disk, hard drive or fixed disk is an electromechanical data storage device that uses magnetic storage to store and retrieve digital information using one or more rigid rapidly rotating disks (platters) coated with magnetic material.
Home computers were a class of microcomputers entering the market in 1977, and becoming common during the 1980s.
In computing, an interface is a shared boundary across which two or more separate components of a computer system exchange information.
The kilobyte is a multiple of the unit byte for digital information.
Magnetic tape is a medium for magnetic recording, made of a thin, magnetizable coating on a long, narrow strip of plastic film.
A minicomputer, or colloquially mini, is a class of smaller computers that was developed in the mid-1960s and sold for much less than mainframe and mid-size computers from IBM and its direct competitors.
Modified Frequency Modulation, commonly MFM, is a run-length limited (RLL) coding scheme used to encode the actual data-bits on most floppy disks.
In computer operating systems, paging is a memory management scheme by which a computer stores and retrieves data from secondary storage for use in main memory.
A prototype is an early sample, model, or release of a product built to test a concept or process or to act as a thing to be replicated or learned from.
Quarter inch cartridge tape (abbreviated QIC, commonly pronounced "quick") is a magnetic tape data storage format introduced by 3M in 1972, with derivatives still in use as of 2016.
A ROM cartridge, sometimes referred to simply as a cartridge or cart, is a removable enclosure containing ROM designed to be connected to a consumer electronics device such as a home computer, video game console and to a lesser extent, electronic musical instruments.
Round-robin (RR) is one of the algorithms employed by process and network schedulers in computing.
In computing, scheduling is the method by which work specified by some means is assigned to resources that complete the work.
Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) is a set of standards for physically connecting and transferring data between computers and peripheral devices.
ST-506 is the designation for two related items: the ST-506 hard disk drive (HDD) and more generally the ST-412 interface, a connection to a computer system that evolved out of the original ST-506 interface.
A sysop (an abbreviation of system operator) is an administrator of a multi-user computer system, such as a bulletin board system (BBS) or an online service virtual community.
A system is a regularly interacting or interdependent group of items forming an integrated whole.
The Transactor was a computer magazine directed at users of Commodore home computers.
A turnkey or a turnkey project (also spelled turn-key) is a type of project that is constructed so that it can be sold to any buyer as a completed product.
Xetec was founded in 1983 by Jon Flickinger, and was located in Salina, Kansas, United States.
8-bit is also a generation of microcomputers in which 8-bit microprocessors were the norm.
