Looks fun. I think I used one of those at our small ACE school growing up. Dig dug, Caveman Olympics, and some flying game are what I remember most. Someone gave my dad an Atari with 60 some games and we played that while our friends were on Nintendo…. Those were the days.

Awesome! I got a couple of those from some people throwing them off and later a C128. I later was able to solicit just some software and hardware. I got some real gems… GIOS, a great GUI reminiscent of Mac Classic, a dot matrix printer, mouse, and some more fun stuff. I got a modem too but wasn’t able to get it online… although there are some web browsers made for it. BASIC on there is pretty easy to learn if you don’t have much else though.

Let us know how it goes. I may have some tips for you as well!

Jake,
My very first computer was a Commodore 128. When that died, I picked up a Commodore 64. After that it’s been PCs ever since. I’m looking forward to teaching my oldest son basic programming on the Commodore. That’s where I got my start, so I figure it could work for him too. 😉

It’s like reliving part of my own childhood through my own kids. Jeremiah is quickly becoming a Dig Dug master. 😉
