Wow, this brings back memories. I have a lot of fond memories using friends' C64s.
I had conveniently forgot that this icon of the computing age is just about as old as me. Oh, the days with 'the toaster' were the ones...
no plus ones

- 30 Years? Wow, I used to sell them brand new from a department store. And wow there were some bad manufacturing batches. Many, many returns. It was exciting. It was the first really consumer computer.Jan 3, 2012
- It was amazing how long some of those early computers were put to use. I had friends still using C64s into the early 1990s, and my mother was a specialist reading teacher, and she was still using Apple ]['s until the mid-90s. Of course, I remember TV stations in the US still using Amigas to do on-screen effects because of the amazing Video Toaster!Jan 3, 2012
