Perhaps you fondly remember the days when 64 meant 64 kilobytes, not 64-bit and you had an opinion about whether the Trash80 or Commie64 was the better machine?  Well, for better or worse you can revist those days thanks to the Internet Archive.  The upload of over 15,000 peices of software and an emulator include not just classic games but the old zines and various bits of software that were created by that generation.  Some memories will be wonderful, some may be best left unexplored.  Thanks to The Inquirer for pointing it out.

Over at Hack a Day is a link to a project which will warm the hearts of old gamers everywhere, a tape reader emulator for the C64.  Built using a Arduino Nano V3 with an added SD card reader and with a rather low level of difficulty to build there is now a way to relive your misspent youth assuming you still have a working C64 on display somewhere.  The total build will cost less than $20 making this great for folks looking to get into programming Arduino and building their own electronics.  Check it out here.

"One of the machines that didn’t make it into his collection until recently was a Commodore 64 with Datasette and 1541 drive. With no tapes and a 1541 disk drive that required significant restoration, he looked at other devices to load programs onto his C64."
