I never owned a C64 back in the 80s (too expensive for my family). A couple of years ago I bought one cheap. The sound quality of the SID is simply amazing. Superior to anything of that age.

AVRs are used everywhere. I found one in an electric toothbrush.

It's definitely a OCD thing :)

One thing I can add is make your pads big enough.
I soldered up a board last weekend that had unnecessarily tiny pads around the pins. Worked first time though.

That's just a 80/68 pin to 50 pin SCSI convertor. I used an adapter for many years with a 68 pin SCSI HD. Seller seems confused with the '50 pins IDE' thing.
