Rollin’ with the Commodores.
Most of us at some point or another will make their way to Hawaii. It’s picturesque beaches, picture perfect sunsets, and clear star filled skies are what usually draw us all in. But seldom do we get to say “I brought home an R&B/Funk group from 1968!”. Well, I can’t say that either, but I can tell you about how I brought home 3 mid-ranked naval officers! Or maybe not.
While in Hawaii I picked these up off a free CraigsList listing. That’s right, I went to paradise and somehow scored 3 free commodore 64s… I can’t confirm whether or not they work yet, but I will be testing them over the next week and reporting back here. There’s also a larger post in the works, but that will have to come when I’m not catching up on 2 weeks worth of work. Consider this a preview of things to come. Who would give these to us? HOW did we get them back to the mainland in one piece? You’ll just have to stay tuned, reader.
In the meantime! If anyone can suggest a cool game or something neat I can do with the command prompt I’d love to hear about it! I’ve never messed with a Commodore 64 before so I’d love to find out more.
