Proof that folks haven't seen the pixels and don't know when some jittery black triangles are not ants.

When Commodore started work on the home computer line, it was still strong in the business area with its PET line of computers. It was, however, testing out what could be next.
...
In this (German) advertisement [1] you can see the line of computers Commodore sold in 1983. It has the commonly known VIC-20 (VC-20, because "VIC" in Germans sounds like another, rude, word - and you could also make it into the "Volks Computer" that way...), the C64, and the PET 8032 in its new, slick, separate keyboard case.

But it also shows the planned successors to the PET, the CBM-II machines 500, 600 and 700, and the "MMF 9000". While the CBM-II were not successful and cancelled before the actual PET, the "Micro MainFrame 9000" - or "SuperPET" [2] as it is known elsewhere - was more successful. [3] has a beautiful tear-down and clean-up photos of the inside of the machine with its extension boards.

It was originally planned by University of Waterloo in Canada, who designed it, as terminal machine for a real mainframe computer. It had a 6809 [4] as second processor and a number of software packages were available for it, like an APL development package, Fortran, Pascal, and even Cobol. The idea was that students developed their software on the relatively inexpensive SuperPET and not on the expensive IBM mainframe. And even though the actual program was slower than on the mainframe, the development was much more comfortable on the SuperPET with its screen editor and quick turnaround times.

The Waterloo software was protected by a hardware dongle, that only recently has been decoded [5]. More information on the SuperPET and some nice pictures are in [6],[7], and our own previous coverage [8].

But Commodore not only advertised computers that were actually produced and sold, systems that were only "tested" on the market were advertised as well, see this report from 1981 [9] with a report on the SuperPET, but also on a "Color 8032". A Color PET has only been created recently as well, see [10].

Other "tested" systems can be found on the Secret Weapons of Commodore page [11]. What is your favourite?

These Pod tents bring campers together under the one roof.
One of the best thing about camping, is being with friends. You drink good beer, you grill up some awesome food, and you tell stories over a campfire well into the night. Then you retire to your respective tents, and fantasize about that one hot friend that you have wanted to screw for years. You co…

The glacier Obama used as a photo op to promote his propaganda isn't shrinking. It's been expanding for decades. He can't even tell the truth about a piece of ice.


"For example, The New York Times editorialized on Obama's trip to Alaska this week in a piece titled "Mr. Obama’s Urgent Arctic Message." It was accompanied by a photo of Margerie Glacier, ostensibly to demonstrate the magnitude of the state's receding ice. One small problem: That particular glacier isn't receding at all. Writing for the National Park Service, Dr. Daniel E. Lawson says Margerie Glacier "has been advancing about 30 feet per year for the past couple of decades." To be clear, other glaciers are melting. But for a newspaper that prides itself in supposed journalistic integrity, you'd think it would research basic information.

But never mind all that. After renaming America's tallest mountain, Obama staged photo ops with glaciers to herald imminent global demise and sophomorically ridiculed those who disagree with him for being "on their own shrinking island."
Obama’s trip to Alaska was a bunch of hot air.

Can anything truly be morally wrong? Are we able to actually assess what is morally wrong?

Considering I'd happily strangle the heads of Vodafone and First Great Western right now, I'm pretty sure I can't.
