Utilizing C64 & WiFi for Web Interaction and Scraping


The C64 may not be the best for web browsing, but you can still connect it to the internet and do cool things! Check out how to get a C64 online using a WiFi adapter. Once you have the adapter, you can use your Vice emulator to communicate with it. Set up your WiFi connection and save the settings to the board’s memory. Then, you can start interacting with the C64 through an interactive serial session. Use commands like `at?` to list available commands and `atc1` to connect to WiFi. You can also send messages to your phone using services like Make. Explore more possibilities, like getting the current time or weather, using APIs.
