    Well.

    Shit-slinging aside, what a properly smart video. I miss those days. I have an emulator knocking around on my computer somewhere for the Amiga, I occasionally play Gunship 2000 and F/A-18 Interceptor. Long live Commodore!

    Computers are serious tools, Michael!

    I don't.
    A friend had a ZX81, similar to the Commodore and I wrote a program that flashed a black dot in the middle of the screen and felt I had accomplished something. One evening we spent three hours getting Space Invaders loaded from cassette tape, you had to get the volume right, only to find out the game was unplayable due to the unusual keyboard.

    When you think you have made a procedure idiot proof your company employs a better idiot.

    the Commodore VIC-20 was my first computer then I upgraded to the C64 a year or so later. I ended up learning a lot from those two machines including BASIC, CP/M and I think a little FORTRAN. Compared to other computers at the time, the Radio Shack TRS-80 and some overpriced boxes of shit from Apple, the Commodore was a great bang for the buck.

    Here are some old Commodore commercials:

    Thanks again that is something to see. I had one of these and had a disk drive and a 2400 baud modem. Real super fast for back then. Went out into the world of bulletin boards and had a lot of fun with that beast. Even upgraded to a Commodore 128 when they cam out. Just plugged all the goodies from the C-64 into it and used that to play games for another two years.
