the VIC 20 was the very 1st computer i ever went online with
back in 1984 i had quite a big Intellivision collection but i had the system for about 3 years
and bought a Colecovision and an Atari 5200 so i wasn't playing the Intellivision much
so a friend of mine came to the door and asked if i wanted to trade all my Intellivision stuff
for all his Vic 20 stuff and since i wasn't playing the Intellivision much i said ok
(didn't know at the time my boxed Intellivision Congo Bongo would be worth a lot of money someday lol)
but anyway when i was at his house i noticed this attachment in his room and i ask what it was?
and he said it was a VIC Modem and that i could go online with it and said here take it
so anyway i brought the Vic 20 home and played the games for a couple weeks and enjoyed it
then one night i was bored and remembered the modem i got with the VIC 20 and thought i would try it
well that changed my life because i was amazed how cool it was to go online and i made a bunch of friends on a local DDIAL
chat that i still have to this day and i haven't been offline since lol
then about a year later i bought an Atari 800xl then the C64...etc
but i will always have fond memories of the Vic 20
