(see where we are heading, I don't think Commodore computer is a piece of silicon manufactured by CSG anymore. Most of the people who have lasted this long in the community are here because of their love of hacking and the challenge of doing things that are considered "impossible". I receive a lot of pleasure hacking things onto my 20 year old C= hardware, much like how I enjoy hot rodding old cars. I've owned cars that don't have the original motor, trans, rear-end, glass, seats, radio, exhaust and the body has more bondo than metal. It's faster, louder, prettier, handles better and gets more peoples attention, but is it still a 62 Nova? Yes! It's the spirit that attracts me to C= and the people. Call me a purist.
