Re: C64 mini

Weird thought...you could run stuff like word processors or Printshop on this thing. Wonder if you could get a printer to work with them? A USB to Centronics adapter/cable that would work with an old Epson compatible printer...yeah, I know, goofy thought. But fun goofy - now if you could get a nice...

Re: New Arcade Systems for $300

I want to thank everyone for the comments in this thread, as I've genuinely mulled over buying one. I have a large'ish home, but no dedicated man-cave (other than my substantial storage area for games).

Re: New thumbs up/down feature?
