For many years I’ve been meeting with friends, family and co-workers to hang out and play video games and tinker with retro consoles (Atari 2600, Nintendo NES, Sega Genesis and Dreamcast, etc.) and vintage computer hardware (Commodore Vic-20′s, Commodore 64′s and Apple IIe’s).
Since I was a little kid, maybe 9 or 10 years old I’ve been collecting and playing with all this wonderful classic hardware and software. In October 1977 my grand parents purchased an Atari 2600 (they passed it on to me, which I still have to this day) and my first C64 that was a Christmas present back in December 1983.
After getting together over many weekends playing games and fixing broken down hardware, and keeping in touch with all my geeky friends the past few years, it was suggested that I should do something amazing with all this cool hardware and software that I’ve collected and kept working all these years…
After thinking about it for a little while I’ve come to the conclusion that my two favorite pieces of retro hardware from my childhood would be my 1977 Atari 2600 heavy sixer and my original 1983 Commodore 64 computer. Both systems get a lot of use around my home that’s for sure.
Yep folks, I have lofty goals for the future, which is starting an official Commodore Computer Club and Users Group (and also talk about the Atari 2600) to service and support the Vancouver, WA and Portland, OR PDX metro area.
Keep watching this website and the timeline for more information, however for now there’s nothing else that I want to talk about quite yet.
