Will wonders never cease, well, yes at sometime they will.

Yes, I was born and grew up in Grand Rapids, MI USA, so I have to forward this post on to the good folks of EAB. It's too bad no one calls my BBS run from a Commodore 64 in 2015 ... probably because of the original 300 baud modem bought from the local mega-mart. Yes, I upgraded the modem to a USR V.Everything, but still nobody calls.

Programmed by a High School student in the 1980s, the system has been running 24/7 for decades. A replacement has been budgeted by the school system, estimated cost: Between $1.5 and 2 million. How much is your old Commodore Amiga worth?
