It worked for me when I tried as a guest) Yes, I can see the pictures perfectly.

My C128 has a similar one, (cream in colour, and higher rated). It's not the original one - my original PSU for my Commodore 64 was a brick, and fully potted (not like the "doorstop" power supply in your thread) ( http://www.magisterrex.com/proddetail.asp?prod=WEBC64A013 ) shows an almost identical unit. The original unit failed many years ago, going high-voltage, putting out 7.5V. (I only noticed it had failed because it caused a loud hum in the sound!!).
