  1. Man, I wish the best for your dad and he is in my prayers. Hang in there!

    I had not just a C=128 but the 64 and the Vic 20. 😮 I used them almost exclusively as gaming machines. I never had an Amiga 🙁

    PS: Mavis Beacon. Hope that brought a smile to your face.

  2. Thanks Jimbo 🙂

    If only the 128 had a Vic20 mode as well!! Then I’d really have the ultimate nostalgia machine.

    And MAVIS BEACON. The younger guys at work were asking what they should use to touch type. No contest 😀

  3. I have these memories of spending hours typing in machine language only to find it didn’t work or if it did work it was some peezly crap game….

  4. This one ends mid-sentence for me at a point where Ruben is saying, ‘The guts of the computer are actually inside the keyb-“, and then nothing. After multiple attempts my download is only 39:16 instead of the 39:22 listed in the show notes.
