    Won a HP 100LX on eBay!

    W00t! Got it for a good price too. I'm not sure if it really qualifies as "vintage", but it should be fun to play around with (and it actually made PC World's "The 25 Greatest PCs of All Time"): http://www.pcworld.com/article/126692-3/the_25_greatest_pcs_of_all_time.html (Images from the...

    Has anyone run Contiki on the C-64? http://www.sics.se/contiki/ I've read about it, but haven't actually heard any first-hand reviews. I was thinking about trying it out, when my C-64 arrives.

    I've been looking at this for the past year or so, but keep talking myself out of buying it. It isn't expensive (around $129.00 US), I just don't think I have the time to devote to learning it, no matter how cool it looks and sounds. Has anyone else checked this out...
