I did end up with some duplicates. VIC stuff seems to be pretty common.
Before this year I never owned any Commodore stuff. The VIC is a pretty
nice machine, given its limitations. I forgot to mention that the box
also had two "motherboards". These plug into the cartridge slot and
have 3 cartridge connectors which allow multiple carts to be plugged in
at the same time. Pretty cool stuff.

Free. This place is the dumping area behind a local company.
The place had a bunch of bubble wrap. I couldn't estimate the square
yards, but there was way more than would have fit in my car if I didn't
have 7 boxes of stuff in it. There were also 50-100 cardboard boxes
and several cubic feet of foam.
