"Get back to work, you muppets."

Commo Dig

A long time ago now, there used to be a mailing list for the Stella Atari 2600 emulator. It was called the Stella Mailing List. Many important discussions of programming techniques and analyses of the Atari video game console were conducted on this mailing list. There used to be a website that documented all the most important discussions and events that occurred on the Stella Mailing List, and it was called The Dig. The Dig no longer exists on the internet. There is no cached backup of the website on any web archival website, and to my knowledge no-one has ever saved any of the information that used to be contained on that website.

There currently exists an incomplete version of The Dig called the MiniDig. You can find it here.

The purpose of this page on my blog is to attempt to construct a new Dig. Because I am a Communist, I decided to call this new Dig the Commo Dig. I have no idea what The Dig used to look like or how it was organised, so I have decided to use my own organisational method. If you have any suggestions for how I could improve The Commo Dig, please email me at vidak at riseup dot net. Thank you.


The text of this dig is released under the GNU GPL Version 3. It is NOT released under normal copyright. You may copy the text of this dig and host it again where-ever you like. This is the original Commo Dig, though, and it is released under the licencing I have chosen. Don’t be fooled into thinking it’s someone else’s intellectual property. You may use the Commo Dig under all the rights and duties listed under its original GNU GPL v3 licencing.
