Well, our debate began when I told him about the C64 www-server at c64.nvg.org. For his opinion, that machine is not a C64 any more. Of course this question is not disturbing my lust for life, but it'd be interesting to see what people consider as being "the Thing", how long it's appropriate to call a equipped C64 a C64? ;-) >What do you think makes it a C-64? Is it the As long as the original mainboard (and maybe the keyboard, though this is not an issue) is in use, doing more than being just a keyboard. Especially if the machine is expanded with original expansion ports (by the means that are provided without modificating the mainboard) I see no reason, why that mighty little thing couldn't be called a C64. This Jeri board is not really like that, but it seems to be so cool that I'd still call a C64 equipped with that a real thing. ;-) For me, the fun of doing will stay as long as I can consider the machine a real C=. -Miika - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
