    WOW! I can't believe anybody still has that stuff! And expects anybody else to buy it! Well, the high (only!) bid at this point is for $10. I guess that tells me what my C64 is worth. I'd probably have to pay somebody to take it off my hands.

    The old BBS days are calling...
    Yeah, I still got my old BBS up'n'running on telnet. An old Amiga 600. Problem is that not so many people like the old nice way to telnet into bbs:s anymore so the users is just around a couple a week :-/

    Heh. Not only are you appealing to my natural sense of Atari bigotry, but I've also got an Epson HX-20, portable relative of the QX-10. I like the fact that Epson still has the hx-20 documentation on-line.
