That might take some time, it got accidentaly buried in the storage shed
out back today. Although I'm going to be moving most of the contents into
a storage unit sometime in the next week or so because it's getting to
damp around here for an outdoor storage shed (one advantage to summertime).

I happened to think of something else concerning the VIC-20 though. If you
aren't getting a Commodore 1541 disk drive with it, you'll want one. I
always had the cassette recorder is all, and always wanted the disk drive.
It used to be that the drives were more than the computers, well they
usually are it seems, but now they're affordable. I remember that it used
to take about 5 minutes to load a 8k game from tape.

Ah, one of the good TV's. Unfortunatly they don't seem to sell such things
in the US. I was actually looking for one several years ago.
