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.

I'll so need to test this out. Wonder if load times are equivalent to the real thing :)

Anyone know if there's a torrent that contains all of them like there was for the MAME ROMS a while back? Bandwidth is cheaper than time.
