Hey. Maybe all the key persons have left this board now, but I figured I would offer a question which in my opinion is the only thing which lacks on our lovely moddet DTV theses days, and that is a piece of HW which hooks up to the userport so we get ethernet aswell.

The fun part is that if you buy the chameleon -- you get all the stuff there aswell. But for some reason, I really do like the DTV. It has its limitations and that is what makes the whole thought process so much more fun than just buy a unit in the store which is ready to start up That is how it has been with the c64 -- you need to tweak and fix until you are happy with the result. There really is no limitations Not many computers are expanded even 30 years after its appearance -- the c64 is totally awesome and unique. I don't see much 8086 machines which is as popular and expanded these days ;-)

Too expensive (especially with the exchange rate) and incompatible for my needs.

Right. People are still amazed with that software and hardware is still being produced for it.
Hehe. I actually look forward to putting my c64 and the dtv back up after my last move. I can't really say that about any other piece of HW -- well, apart from my FPGA Arcade board, that is It all comes down to enjoying the ride -- not the destination. And that is why the c64 (and the amiga) is such a cool hobby -- it never seem to end and always has new stuff developed I truly believe that the C64 will never really die -- it just changes shape.
To be honest -- if I even end up in a retirement home, I will for sure have some kind of way to play my favourite c64 and amiga games. The rest can play piano and sing along to the tv if they like ;-)
Hehe...I think growing up with both legs in Camp Commodore, and in a country where Atari was the big bad wolf, has made it impossible for me to touch an Atari computer The irony is that I have no reason to dislike Atari as I have no knowledge of it But that is how the wars were in the days. Amiga vs PC and Amiga vs Atari. One had to take sides. A cruel digital world -- and digital it was. You were either THIS or THAT
I have a standing invitation to attend the Atari Party 2013 in the summer, and the organizer said that I could set up at table with Commodores! Wow, I'd be the only Commodore table amongst a sea of Atari game consoles and computers!
