Which is amusing to me because I always preferred Turbo C and I preferred all the "void" stuff over the more "user friendly" languages. Then again, one of my languages was machine code for a Commodore 64, so I liked having all that access to the hardware.

LOL you just dated yourself... your probably as old as me ;)

i'm assuming your refering the c64 - if so your data is incorrect

1994, at CeBIT in Hanover, Germany, Commodore announced that the C64 would be finally discontinued in 1995. Commodore claimed that the C64's disk drive was more expensive to manufacture than the C64 itself. Although Commodore had planned to discontinue the C64 by 1995, the company filed for bankruptcy a month later, in April 1994.

In the middle of 2004, after an absence from the marketplace of more than 10 years, PC manufacturer Tulip Computers BV (owners of the Commodore brand since 1997) announced the C64 Direct-to-TV (C64DTV), a joystick-based TV game based on the C64 with 30 games built into ROM. The product was advertised on QVC in the United States for the 2004 holiday season. Some users have installed 1541 floppy disk drives, hard drives, second joysticks and keyboards to these units, which give the DTV devices nearly all of the capabilities of a full Commodore 64. The DTV hardware is also used in the mini-console/game Hummer, sold at RadioShack mid-2005.

The Commodore 64 is still used today by some computer hobbyists, various C64 emulators allow anyone with a modern computer, or a compatible game console, to run these programs.

Since 28 March 2008, Commodore 64 games have been available to buy through Nintendo's Virtual Console service in Europe; the first games available were Uridium and International Karate. Later, on February 23, 2009, the Commodore 64 section was launched in North America with the first three titles, International Karate, The Last Ninja and Pitstop II.

its not down, it's not out and definitely not discontinued.

Bontrose.  When it comes to the Commodore computers, watch what you say  :laugh:

Those of us who have had one, grew and learned on them have very fond memories.  No other machine before or since has provided the nostalgia than talking with those who had a Commodore.

BTW, once I found (can't remember the player) the Commodore 64 Firewall V64.x I hacked him until I was successful at downloading the file --even though I already had a Firewall larger than that!  Just the name caught my attention.

Until it got fried in a power surge, I had a Commodore 64. I now have to use the emulator, though I'm not sure how to get hold of the developer for registration. I haven't received any reply from the email addy he provided. lol

I'm going to necro this one because I'm bored.

I have only a vague recollection of the Nintendo 64. I played quite a few games on the original--heck, I have one floating around still--and quite a few on the Super Nintendo. Did the Nintendo 64 come after that?

NES > SNES > N64 > Gamecube > Wii

I beleive is the order of evolution

I couldn't afford a fancy playstation as all the cool kids were using, stick to my Zelda 64 and Super smash brothers, ftw <3

My parents refused to let us have the game consoles, but I managed to find some later on. Seemed a but hypocritical since they were both programmers and big time nerds in the 70s and were responsible for introducing me to the Commodore 64 and the TI-99 thus spring boarding me into the world of the computer geek. I own a GameCube, but have never owned a N64 or any Playstation or Xbox system. I did enjoy the Final Fantasy series, and even played FF7 on a roomie's PS1 while I was at university.

If it wasn't for my Mom and Aunts obsession for owning the latest and greatest computer out there I wouldn't be in the computer business like I am.  I'd probably be stuck flipping burgers or watching the register at a tourist shack...

My aunt bought a TSR 80, so my mom had to get one.
My mom bought a Commodore Vic 20, so my aunt had to get one.
My mom bought the Commodore 64, so my aunt had to get one.
My aunt got a 2nd, so we got a 2nd and 3rd :)
The the Commodore 128, Amiga 500, Amiga 1000 then we broke down and got ourselves a 286.

My first loan when I was 16 wasn't for a car, it was for a 386 33 mhz for $2,600.  It had a 20 MB hard drive and 640k of memory.
I paid cash, $250, for my first car.  A 1972 Plymouth Fury.

Funny thing is...  I'm pretty strict with my kids on the computer as well.  We give them 20 minutes each day to play. 

Heck, when I was their age I was spending 18 hour marathons, sleeping through school or half the time skipping it...  Oh, wait... I think I answered myself there  :16:

I'm talking like 9 years ago, it's pretty hard to scrape together cash, when you're 10

Quite a while actually :)  And when I did I was disappointed...  It really wasn't until the 386 that games and graphics actually came anywhere near the 64...  My Amiga still outpaced the PC until I got my first 486...

A real good friend of mine had the Amiga 1000 with a Video Toaster.  Back then all the best TV stations used the Video Toaster for their graphics, animation and such for the news and weather.  We spent many a night making our own news shows with some very fancy graphics (at least back then).
