Okay... So I got home from work, unpacked the RAR file, and converted all the d64's into *real* disks. CCGMS 13.1 was on two of the disks. On one of them, it was a splat file (so not really there). On the other, it was a SEQ file! So I had to convert that to a PRG file to get it to work. Anyway, I tested everything out, and all the files seem to work. A couple of those hacked versions of CCGMS are pretty pathetic. And Castle Term... hmmm... Well, let's just say... It sure has a "familiar look" to it.
Golan, if you get Bo to put up a Terminal page, or if you decide to put one up yourself, I have *many* more terminal programs besides CCGMS and TouchTerm. I even have one made by a guy I knew back in Portland who when by the name of Tiamat. It's called Tiamat's Term, and it's 1 block long! I think it's just one or two lines of BASIC code... I'm pretty sure it wins the prize for the smallest terminal program on a C64.

Writing a term program in BASIC is very easy. I've done it before. Trouble is, don't expect it to even keep up with a 300 baud connection if the data is streaming through at full speed. I imagine you could write a very small term in machine language too, if it had no features or menus or anything.
Wow! I had no idea there were so many versions of CCGMS. I still have a very old version. I should try one of the new ones.
If anyone has any good terminal programs for the Plus/4, Vic-20, and PET.. maybe we should add those to the collection as well.
