Did you have a Commodore 64 when it was released 30 years ago? Do you still have it? Do you still use it?
It would be great to hear your memories of this brilliant 8 bit computer. Please leave a comment below, and I will compile them all together at the end of this week. If you wish, you can also email me at email@example.com
I look forward to hearing your stories!

One of our DBAs at work decided to go on sabbatical. Part of the company policy is that if you do go on a sabbatical, you have to leave your company laptop behind.

We didnt have a Commodore 1084 monitor to hand so we had to use a 17″ TFT screen. Obvously, the C64 does not have a VGA or DVI output! Luckily I had a VGA box going spare. This allows you to connect a composite video device to a VGA monitor.
