Well, allthough I don't even consider buying one, it would certainly make
the built-in emulator run more smoothly. Might save one entry in the
comp.emulators.cbm or comp.sys.cbm FAQ:

Q) Why isn't Fort Apocalypse working on my C64?
A) Because it's a C64 Web'it

Well, set-top boxes are commonly available. IMHO, this Web'it thingy could
have some other public by implementing the possibility to use a harddrive.
AFAIK, it doesn't have this at the moment. Now, it's only the n-th 
set-top box (and a rather expensive one, too!)

I'm sorry. When I was at that stand on Friday, it was rather quiet (and noone
manning the stand). On sunday, it was _that_ busy, that I didn't even
consider coming near to it;)
