    Other old hardware geeks may enjoy this.

    I have been toying with the idea of putting my Commodore 64 back on the Internet just for fun. Years ago, I spent hours using the C64, Amiga 1000, and Amiga 500 on the Internet in text mode. I had a dial-up account and a 2400 baud modem on the C64 and the Amigas. There is now a graphical browser for the C64. I still have all these computers, and a Timex Sinclair that preceded the C64.

    I also used my C64 with a VT100 emulator to run programs on my employer's IBM main frame.

    I don't want to spend any money to buy a C64 Ethernet adapter. I think I can share the Internet using Linux on another computer with a serial cable.

    Don't crash this web page served by an ordinary C64: http://58.6.118.18/

    Here is a video by someone using a DEC terminal through a Linux "kitchen" server: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=588X_WEl6KM

    Cheers

        JERRY: Before we go any further, I'd just like to point out how disturbing it is that you equate eating a block of cheese with some sort of bachelor paradise. Seinfeld
