c64screen[1] My one-hundred-and-fifty-fifth podcast is up. Scott digs deep with Pete Brown about the Commodore 64 Emulator he is writing in Silverlight 3. Is Silverlight fast enough? What about offline support? What Silverlight 3 features made the job easier? All this and next steps in this week's show. See video of the emulator in action!

This was a neat project and well worth the time to show it off for others to enjoy. Congrats!

Very nice show, and you managed to go remarkably deep, despite the limitations of audio-only. Of course, this project really should have an 1,5 hour video tour of the code! When will the bi-weekly Hanselhour video show be launched?

It's great to see the mix of old and new technologies. Oh, and for future reference: 1 Hz = once per second, 1kHz (small k) = 1,000 times per second, 1MHz (big M) = 1,000,000 times per second. :)
