    mini-itx.com - news - Commodore USA reanimates the C64 the direct link appears to be down atm. :( http://www.commodoreusa.net/CUSA_C64.aspx Another idea that must have died back in 2011 and I never knew this was here... Man I need to work less and play more.

    Man this throws me back to my childhood with my Vic20 and C64 w/1541 Floppy Disk drive that overheated all the time. I used a Capsela toy set to make a battery powered fan. I would connect the battery whenever I needed to enter a town in Ultima games or do anything that required the drive to read a large amount of data. Possibly the worst design for a drive EVER and yet I have the fondest of memories playing those old games.

    I just found this via a random link today :(

    There is a Commodore 64 emulator in the Windows APP store, I have it on my Surface RT. It's great when you feel the need for some retro fun :D
