Inside the C64

Like millions of other people out there, my first computer was a Commodore 64. (A C64c to be specific.) Apparently like millions of other people out there, I still think it was a great computer, and I still have one stuffed in the shed that I keep promising I'll pull out one day and use again. (It's actually one I picked up on eBay a while back. My original one exploded.) Back in college, I had replaced the bootup logo for my copy of Windows 95 with the Commodore startup screen.

PC World just posted a nice article that gives a tour of the Commodore internals. Check it out if you're feeling nostalgic.
