my 0.02 DKK:

my current "project" of creating a C64 board will be based on the very
first one

some have said why not later models that did not have as many flaws etc.

my main reason is that i want to learn something along the way, what i will
learn might not be what everyone else would (we are all very different)

but i suspect that i will sharpen my skills in eagle, for the first time do
a bigger board than 100*80mm, but most importantly i will learn some of the
shortcomings of the C64 and how they tried to get around that. and then
what thou could have done better.

i have also thought what it would require to make a chip that would work
100% like the original but have more modern outputs.. ie hdmi, or RGB....
you get my drift

but the last bit is long away for me at least
