Looking Back At the Commodore 64

doppleganger871 Re:It was the computer for us commoner kids (263 comments)

We also started out with a Vic-20... my dad eventually built his own audio amp for inside the computer (the green-screen monitor didn't have any audio), and made his own RAM expansion, and added the 40/80 column cart. Was an ass-kickin' system by the time we jumped over to the C128 in 85. I still have a huge collection of Commodore stuff... Vic 20's, a 16, couple Plus/4's, two SX-64's, several 128's, two 128D's, a ton of 64's and 64c's, Amiga 3000. And drives and printers... and a SuperCPU, Link-232, EZ-232, Swiftlink, Turbo-232, Ethernet Cartridge, CMD HD, CMD FD2000... the list goes on and on...

Serves him right for trying to ask a non-screened question of the socialist^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hsenator. You would have thought a fine, upstanding senator like him would love to hear what the youth would have to say.
