Well, many people can (and they often do!) ask (even me): "why is it usefull
to take care about 'so old' machines, even the slowest/cheapest buyable
machine (which is cheaper than buying a C64 on e-bay) nowdays has much-much
more power than these machines!".  But as usual, I always stuck with another
question instead: what's the point of collecting stamps?  Or anything else? 
I guess this is a hobby, and not so much to do with any "logical reason" but
the personal enjoyment like with other hobbies (usually).
To unsubscribe from the list send mail to with
the string "unsubscribe cc65" in the body(!) of the mail.
