|New Chotaire homepage officially launched!||MAY 24 2005|
This website offers detailed information and downloads for the scene musician Chotaire (electronic music for the livingroom), who is also known as Man & Machine, a Vinyl DJ and dancefloor-based music producer.
This website features free music downloads, interviews, photos and more interesting information for everyone who likes non-commercial electronic music. It is updated regularly with new previews, funny stuff and also destined as meeting-point for friends. Both prior websites have been merged into one SQL-based web project.
Chotaire was once well-known as a C64 scener for lots of different reasons. Chotaire still follows the original idea of scenish composing and is still active in a few scene-related projects.

|Retro „Top Sites List“||MAY 21 2005|
We’ve added a new feature to the CGEUK forums – called „Top Site List“. If you run a retro gaming site, shop, magazine, etc, then add your banner (468×60 pixels) to the Top Site List, and then add a „Vote For This Site“ button to your site somewhere. When people click on the Vote button, your site will rise through the ranks on the Top Site List – the higher you are, the more exposure your site will get! It’s a very good way of increasing site traffic.
It’s free to join – so why not use this to get some free advertising for your site!
The only stipulation is that your banner must be hosted by you – it cannot be uploaded to the CGEUK server. Apart from that, you can have static or animated banners, or even flash banners!
Join up now – come to www.cgeuk.com/forum and click on the „Top Site List“ link on the header menu…

|C64hq three years old today||MAY 01 2005|
That’s right! Three years and kicking! The Great Masterplan? is still intact, but there’s no big update this time. Instead, read the editorial (new feature on C64hq) from Ville, Boz and Andreas. Thanks to everyone who have supported us, and to those who will support us in the future.
C64 related news come here. Generally everything that is „around“ C64, and not directly a C64 release.
