Ah, the C=+4. I never had a C=64, and when the hype grew decided to leap one step ahead. Boy was I mistaken. I did have some games which couldn't run on the C=64 because they required too much memory (e. g. some Infocom text adventures), but other than that I felt cheated, at least initially.
On the plus side, when the C=+4 and it's smaller companion, the C=16 failed at the market, I could get quite a few games at a considerable discount.
I even had a documented ROM listing (a book with a few hundred pages, no more), including detailed explanations of the registers and their effects. Managed to program some soft-scrolling techniques too, a mandelbrot fractal program with animated color table, and a rotating Octahedron animation. Probably could have done most of that on the C=64 too, but the bank-switching and increased RAM was quite helpful.
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
Although I'm very attracted to the idea of owning a certain-coloured-person toilet brush, the "You can't see the site unless you create an account" thing is a bit of a turn-off, for me (I've even blocked pinterest, because I don't like being nagged to hand over personal information).

I am 50 years old. I blew my knees out years ago, walking through San Francisco. This year I did a big trip, I did Wacken Open Air, Brutal Assault and Sabaton Open Air. Afterwards, we rushed to Norway and saw Rammstein. I did all this thinking it's my last chance to physically be able to survive weeks in tents. Probably true.
Rammstein in Oslo was far and away the best gig i have ever seen. Every 2 seconds something blew up, or there were lights or smoke. I can't imagine they'd ever bring all that gear to Australia if they tour, so I was very glad to get to see them in Europe
What was your best gig ever?
