Have an old Commedore 64 lying around? I used to, until my son poured toothpaste all over the keyboard. I still have an old Atari 1040ST, and have been dying to use it for something. I am not sure why, it's kind of this weird fetish I have to get really old systems doing modern things. I mean, I still have a dumb terminal and a 2400 baud modem! I can't bear to throw things away until they are TOTALLY useless. The problem is, you can't get these systems to do anything but play their old games... providing the disks still work! Well, now someone has gone and done it: they created an Multi-tasking Operating System for the C64 that even has TCP/IP and web browser capability.
