I havent read anything beyond this point, cause I dont really have time on
my hands these days.

What's important is that its relatively easy to make the c64 a usb "guest",
by using a specialized microcontroller with its 0own usb interface.  The c64
can't be a usb host controller in this case, but it can act as a guest,
fetcing data/info/etc from the host PC.

I believe I saw it referenced at, as its a linux-supported
general purpose usb microcontroller.
