64 whole kilobytes of RAM!!!

Oh, my, this is the one I learned on. The Commodore 64 is remembered 25 years later. My high school (over in Murray, Ky.) got its first ones in 1982, and I was in that first, small computer class. I’ve been giving my young son “computer lessons,” and I tried to explain that when I learned we had nothing but a cursor prompt, and we wrote programs in something called BASIC. And we walked to school uphill both ways in the snow, too, so nyah.
