I'm Mike and I'm new to the commodore scene. The first computer I used was a friends ZX81. The only Commodore I used was a neighbours C64. I followed the age old ZX Spectrum -> Atari ST -> PC -> Mac -> Raspberry Pi -> C64 route to get where I am today.
Hello Mike. I'm new here too, The C64 brings me to yet another forum Commodore machines run through my veins, along with other 8-bit machines that is. The VIC-20 was my first computer, since then I've been hooked.
I'm Scott, I'm from Eastern Canada, and I had 3 C64s growing up (2 breadboxes, and a C64c) I did however start on a VIC-20. I later got a Commodore 128D before "selling out" and getting a 386 DOS based PC in 1990 (the Amiga wasn't viable where I grew up because no stores in my hometown carried any software for the computer)
I finally found the time to write two lines about myself.
My name is Ugo, 46 years old from southern Italy and I am a big fan of Retro Computer like many of you. I started with a C64 given by my parents in 1983 but I fell in love with Commodore thanks to a "PET 2001" that my uncle
used. From that moment on I have never abandoned the world of computers, passing through Amiga500 and subsequently to PCs. About ten years ago I went back to dealing with Retro Computers and I started collecting almost all the
Commodore sold up to 1993 plus a few Atari and Spectrum out of curiosity. What I love nowadays is being able to connect modern peripherals and interfaces to those old 8bit machines and see them do things that were impossible
at the time. I am very happy with the interest that has grown in Retro Computers in recent years and with the increasing number of hardware and software available, there is always fun!
In general, however, I follow the whole world of technology, especially home automation and Smartphones.
Thanks for having me here, I'm from Canada, and my name is Adam, I have always enjoyed gaming and it has been a passion of mine for many years.(Though I started out on NES.) Single board computers have peaked my interest for sometime now, however, I recently got gifted a C64 mini. I am ecstatic to finally get to use one, as I have never had the lucky to use many of these Retro computers besides the old Macintosh. I'm Excited to discover this interesting bit of history, and hopeful be able to contribute someday.
These are the adventures of Space Dandy! In Space!

brranduin: Hi Commodore fans. I just got a C64 Mini and I'm not getting audio. Google landed me here and this looks like a cool place for me to learn about my new toy. I never had one back in the day.
