There have only been 4 prototypes made and 3 are already spoken for. The 4th one is going to be auctioned off at some point with a Flyer installed.
If there is enough want/demand for the enclosures as seen in the pictures, more will be produced.

Absolutely Awesome.

We "I" will need details of where and when this will be Auctioned. :) If it's at the club can we send in a confidential absent bid with you. ?

P.S could this and the other Flyer post be moved to a "The New Flyer Network Modem" thread.

Shane.

Hi Shane. For the auction, it will probably be listed on eBay, unless there is a better way to get it noticed by a lot of people. Of course when it's going to be listed, I would follow up here and on other forums with a link to the auction. I'm thinking probably over the weekend it will be listed. I just need to take more pictures of Flyer in the case and write up a good listing covering what Flyer is, the story behind the enclosure, etc for the people who don't know about Flyer yet. If it ends up being a club specific auction, a confidential absent bid would be fine too.

About a new thread like you suggested, feel free to start another thread here on Retro Hackers and I can repost the pictures, etc unless a forum moderator can do the move of Flyer specific posts.

The 4th prototype case with Flyer installed is now up for auction on eBay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200703673679

Any profit earned from this auction will help fund setup costs for producing a final "production" case, which we hope to make available to the Commodore/Flyer community at the lowest cost possible.

They are impressive. I can't believe how nice they got the texture on the prototypes. :) .-.-.

Added a Flyer feature to our search engine and as most files indexed are on FTP sites added a convenient HTTP download area to copy your files to, for downloading directly to your Flyer. simply use the example command below when your ready from your C64/128 etc. Smile

load"http:cloud.cbm8bit.com/public/loderunner.d64, d=loderunner",7
d=loderunner is the disk image name that will be saved to your Flyer.

Pushed some major updated to Commodore 8bit search including a neat addition were calling 'Cloud' you can hotlink files from for posting in your favorite Forum or store your favorite disk images for your Flyer etc.

enjoy
Shane.

How to use our Cloud File Host with your Flyer Modem

Click on the Flyer search filter and Enter the file name to find! the search is not case sensitive (usually a complete or a partial name of the file you are searching for) in the "Search Bar" and press the "Search" button. Once you have your file in the results simply click 'copy to cloud' and rename the file if necessary to a neat sort name ie "pacman1.d64". Enter the following command directly into your Commodore 8bit computer with the Flyer attached and turned on. load"http:cloud.cbm8bit.com/public/yourfilename.d64, d=diskname",7 let break that down a bit load"http:cloud.cbm8bit.com , this is the load command for the C= 8bit and the start of the url where the file is on the net, /public/ the folder your files is stored on the net, yourfilename.d64 the complete file name for your disk image, , d=diskname",7 the diskname you wish to store the file under on your Flyer and the Flyer network device number ,7. The Flyer Internet Modem along with the resources of a online temporary storage like the public area of the cloud helps you quickly load the files found using our search engine.

Hope this helps get more from your Flyer.

Exciting news!! Firmware v1.20 Brandons Blog!

It is now possible to stream disks over your local network! This is accomplished by downloading a small disk shortcut to the Flyer instead of an entire image, here is how!!

load"disk:Blue Max,r",7 notice the ,r this is the streaming disk parameter. :)

commodoreONLINE fully supports this exciting new feature. Updated versions of the cloud server are also available for immediate download.

Update now and enjoy.

Handy Commands for the Flyer: Please add more!!

1: load"^:*",7 (where ^ is the up arrow) To update the Firmware.
2: load"disk:Blue Max,r",7 ,r" (r = remote) Used for disk streaming.
3: open7,7,15,"r-m:Blue Max":close7 The disk will now be mounted.
4: open7,7,15,"r-u:":close7 Unmounts the disk.
5: load"disk:nameonflyer",7 Load disk from cloud.
6: save"disk:nameonflyer",7 Save disk to cloud.
7: save"programname", 7 Save current program to cloud.
8: load"$",7 Then 'list' Display the contents of the current cloud folder.
9: load"1:config",7 Load configuration program.

Also we setup a test server at Commodore 8bit before we integrate the new features into http://cloud.cbm8bit.com

user: flyer
port: 2112

enjoy
Shane

- Can I hang one of these off a Vic Switch and then allow a chain of different commodore machines access concurrently by sharing using the normal feature of the Vic Switch?

Like a Vic-20, C16, C64, C128 and so on all on the Vic Switch?

.-.-.


I have the internet flyer working on the vic switch with no problems at all.

both c128s work very well with it.
one c128 for editing and the other one runs a bbs with the flyer stream files from my pc for downloads (just to see it it could do it) it also works with the flyer server as well

Did the same here i streamed the http files to the Commodore 64 server just too see how well it worked. :) The Flyer is a real nice piece of kit..

I plan on intergrating the media server for the Flyer into Commodore 8bit just finalising the details of the service.

enjoy
Shane.
