GUESS WHO HAD TO SPEND A LONELY 40TH BIRTDAY!

You guessed right.
It's the Commodore 64.

Which one, I ask myself walking in circles as my step echo in the dark vastness of my manor's ballroom, which one of all retro-computing communities out there would forget the birthday of the Commodore Sixty-Four? THE 40th BIRTHDAY!

Which one?

But Amigaworld dot net, of course.
Founded by David Doyle with tenderness, for you savages to ravage and turn into a sterile wasteland of hate and division.

Hate, and division, and denial yes DENIAL of your roots!
Would any of you be there, would any of you had basked in the light that the Amiga was, without a COMMODORE 64?

And yet, you all left yor very heritage uncelebrated, forgotten.
(And you, YOU R.BERNARDO, PRESIDENT OF THE FRESNO COMMODORE USER GROUP! YOU OF ALL PEOPLE, HOW COULD YOU!! Sincerely, Mega RJ Mical)

My friends,
may the saints in heaven who respectively represent and protect the SID Chip, the MOS6502, the VIC-II chip, forgive you and turn their other silicon cheek.

May them.



With ashy, absinthe-bitter, what am I saying NEPENTHE-BITTER sadness,
yours,
Mega "RJ" Mical.

I bricked a THEC64 mini for this occasion.

Oh, and MOS 6510.

This is an Amiga forum not a Commodore one! I like the SID chip but never used a C64. From that 8bit era my friends had Spectrums, Amstrad CPCs, BBCs and Atari 400s. My favourite memory was Star Raiders on the Atari. The C64 sales bailed out the mess Commodore made of the A1000 marketing but beyond that I have no C64 love. Like many 40 year olds this year its birthday should have been spent in his shirt and pants having a Zoom party with his self isolating friends! Just don't try screen sharing a Blu-ray film over the interweb, that doesn't work (and is probably illegal?)!

It's unfortunate that the celebration was cut short by the manager of the Panera bread who kicked everyone out. There was barley anytime to sit down and start discussing things.

However, shouldn't the real birthday be the day that the C64 was actually released to the public in August?

Technically Amiga (Lorraine) comes from «Jay Glenn Miner» work in his garage, Jay once worked for Atari, so Amiga hardware might owe Atari small thanks for Hiring Jay and giving him the skills. On a software level and hardware well, Amiga is break from the C64.

The Amiga would be overlooked as well, if something more capable had superseded it before the PC took over everything.

Let's call this hypothetical system Amada. In this alternate reality we would all be posting on amadaworld.net, lamenting what could have been, and longing for the Good Old Days, for the Amada 5000 with its 32K-color packed-pixel Laverne chip and 16-channel Shirley chip.

The time has come, friend Nonefornow, to look into the ties, the shady ties I say! between Robert "The President" Bernardo and the owner of that Panera Bread.

The under the table deals. The backroom agreements. The purported synergies.
Kicking out early the most strenuous supporters of their carbsy establishment?
Something isn't right, my friend.

"There was barley anytime to sit down and start discussing things". Cereally bad, friend of mine, cerally bad.

As much as I love Franko and pine yes PINE for his return to these barren lands of sorrow, delusions, and double digit QIs, I am not him, friend klx300r.

Place the blame on David Doyle for not providing a context sensitive spellchecker.
