D' ye know, as I sit here I think I could reproduce this guy's setup. I may no longer have the printer, but I did, and the rest I still do. (Except the coffee cup. I WANT that coffee cup.)

You want to be an abacist, eh? I wanna be a Mentat.

Humans WILL BE the computers. In the year 10191. They will be called mentats.

I had a light pen for my C-64!

But I never had one of those goofy kneeling chairs.

I bet I can find one of those coffee cups around here. If I do, I'll wrap it up and send it to you. XD

I just sold my Commodore parts for a nice $25. There wasn't the whole computer, else I would have kept it.

Hell, I probably have five thousand dollars worth of Commodore soft- and hardware here, all bought for ha'pence on the dollar on eBay. Sic transit gloria CBM.

Flop-for-flop, i still think it may well have been the best computer ever built.
