I WILL have this.....

  1. How cool is that! I had a Commodore 64 in 84 or 85...about the same time I experienced Horizons for the first time. Played mostly video games on the big floppy disks, but did some 'art' and learned how to program 'sprites' to move around the screen.

    Compared to the tech of the time, Horizons really was a huge leap into the future. Too bad tech caught up so quickly...and that Horizons wasn't continually updated as tech evolved.

    Awesome. Keep on postin, we'll keep reading.

  2. Kind of overpriced for what you're getting, though.

  3. Yes, the Commodore 64 -- not as powerful as the Athene, but a great computer back in the 80s. Before I got my Comp Sci degree and even before I became Surgeon General of MVT, I used this computer for computer graphics and music. Had to type in commands to load files, etc. Imagine if the red-head had this computer, she would not have had time to be talking to sub repair guy or putting off chemistry homework -- no optical discs for this one, just good old 5.25 floppy disks that held a whopping 140K if IIRC.

  5. Nice. Ahhh 1982 - the year I graduated high school. When they make a TI-994A replica I'll have to buy one of those. I had a brushed aluminum one that looked like the DeLorean I lusted after at the time.

  6. Forget the C64. Amiga forever!

  7. Commodore? What, are you running your own XANADU House?
