Hello everyone!

This is my first posting on the list, so I thought I would say hello to
everyone subscribed.

My name is Michal Pleban and I live in Poland. I have been a loyal fan

extension possibilities. These machines were unavailable in the '80s and
'90s in Poland, so I even did not know they existed. I acquired dead 610

in the 720 case, or obtaining the 8088 card and running FreeDOS on the

I'd like to say hello to all the Commodore fans on the mailing list, and
hopefully we will spend here many happy days hacking our machines ;-)
