Thirty years ago, Christmas 1982, I got a Commodore 64 for Christmas.
It wasn’t the first computer I owned (and in fact, it was the third!). It was clunky. I didn’t get a disk drive with it, which left me using the crappy cassette recorder that I had with the VIC-20.
But it, along with the (later acquired) Atari 800XL and 1030 modem, pretty much cemented my lifelong obsession with cheap bitty-box computers..
