I miss my C64. Even wrote my own version of Tetris on it in BASIC. Ran quite well, actually - but I found out that I had made it a little too large and had overwritten the memory addresses needed for saving to cassette (my 1541 disc drive had sorta, well, blown up :P).

I miss my Amiga 500 even more, though... Had to give up on it, though, after I somehow managed to make it impossible to boot from the hard drive carriage and found that my Workbench discs (both 2.1 and 1.3) had succumbed to bit rot.

EDIT: And, man, I miss the days of BBSes. Modern forums just don't have the same sense of community...
