Like these beauties:





others like old toast-irons

Like this:


 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

(That toast-iron plays a lot of great games by the way....but I was disappointed by the Berzerk....game play is too far of from the original.
But there are zillion of great games on it....and I totally envy that Bela still has ALL of his floppies...

I remember my old C64 ... Modified with Speeddos, Speeddos Plus, and after that Dolphin-Dos .. the fastest loader system ever (at this time) ..

I remember faulty VIC chips .. faulty SID Chip ... and EVER faulty I/O Port .. so the parallel-cable will not work ..

But I love this "Computer" really ..

Regretfully it's not as easy as "grabbing a bottle"....I'd love to be able to !
