I recently got given a Commodore 64 which I've now fully restored!
I think i've got the Vintage Computer bug bad cause last week I bought an Amiga 500+ and a shed load of bits for it to pimp it out!
Okay, now be honest. No, I mean it. What, exactly, have you done with the Commadore since you gave it a new lease of life? Huh? Huh?
I ask because I got my itchy mitts on a BBC B and was thrilled to get it up and running and.... The euphoria lasted about three days. Then I was given, yes, given a RISC OS PC that would have cost the earth new and again bounced up and down with glee. That lasted a week. I passed it on to a worthy cause and damn me, a week later someone else offered me another RISC OS PC that followed the first one on a 'free to good home basis. There are people out there still using them. Lummy.
I have been corrupted. I can't even think of LINUX without shuddering. Twenty years ago LINUX would have been a challenge. Now I just want things to work out of the box and stop giving me nasty messages and I wish I still had XP.
Suddenly remembered someone gave me a slot over the keyboard piano keyboard for the Comm 64 and we had a wonderful time with it. That on one side and the BBC B making horrid sounds on the other.... My son later joined a pop group and made very much the same sort of noises.
Also of note, of all his friends who came to play on the computers none of them went on to study computers, only him. Really was a case of needing one there, all the time to whet the appetite, I think.
