Still, it seems pretty reliable on (NTSC) VIC-20 with WiModem now.


On the Vic-20 version with wedge (working now) it ran for over an hour going through the all the feeds in Kiosk mode. Failed during a BBC feed.

Is there a way to exit of of the feed while it is loading or if it locks up short of resetting?

great work - if you're looking for your next project - it would be nice to see a simple web server running on a real Vic-20 :wink:

Reliability is improving little by little. Hopefully I can eventually get it to be bulletproof!

I will see if I can add a way to abort displaying a feed other than RUNSTOP-RESTORE. However sometimes when the WiModem is downloading a URL it does not seem to be possible to abort with '+++' followed by 'ATH'. Other times this works, so I guess it depends on what state the modem is in.

I also like the idea of a VIC-20 webserver, so I may have a go at it! I haven't played with 'ATA' autoanswer mode yet.

It ended up going all night no crash. I stopped it at 9:35am. 22 hours.

I'm running CSDb now.

I only tried CSDb once and it seemed to choke on one of the feeds (towards the end).

I haven't had a chance to look into this yet though.

Finally managed to give this a try. Very nice piece of software.

Thanks for your efforts!

My Vic is now permanently on line... :D
