A chuckle

As you might have guessed I have been obsessing over video games recently. While reading some comments on a thread at Gizmodo, yes it's really bad, and I had a good chuckle at this.

"The Commodore 128 was made by taking the innards from two Commodore 64s and, for some reason, a TRS-80 Model III, duct-taping them together and then sticking the whole thing into a single case. This allowed users to run two programs simultaneously; you could, for example, be typing a document in PaperClip and playing Frogger at the same time. You could then save the results to the built-in hard drive, if there was one. If not, then you could spend the rest of the week saving to a cassette tape."

I even had frogger on tape. Those were the days.
