Actually, you are correct. I just found out the site is being blocked by my work.

Nice and clean saxophone sound, indeed. Didn't knew him.
I especially like saxophone and clarinet players; my personal favourites are John Coltrane, James Carter, Jan Garbarek, Branford Marsalis.
On another note, may I propose Aldo Romano, Louis Sclavis, Henri Texier[^]?

Saw a short movie about Commodore history and finally understood why we had that much 4/Plus computers in schools...
When 4/Plus failed in the USA and most of Europe, Commodore sold it with a large discount to the communist block, where Hungary was the main buyer (there was no computer manufacturing of any kind there)... They actually created a special character ROM to include special letters for the Hungarian ABC...
While I already had my C64 at home, I remember classmates (some of them way better than me) who had no access to computer anywhere else but at school... so it was a good deal for us...

Ah, the C=+4. I never had a C=64, and when the hype grew decided to leap one step ahead. Boy was I mistaken. I did have some games which couldn't run on the C=64 because they required too much memory (e. g. some Infocom text adventures), but other than that I felt cheated, at least initially.
On the plus side, when the C=+4 and it's smaller companion, the C=16 failed at the market, I could get quite a few games at a considerable discount.
I even had a documented ROM listing (a book with a few hundred pages, no more), including detailed explanations of the registers and their effects. Managed to program some soft-scrolling techniques too, a mandelbrot fractal program with animated color table, and a rotating Octahedron animation. Probably could have done most of that on the C=64 too, but the bank-switching and increased RAM was quite helpful.
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
