Even allowing for its price, it's currently about as relevant as a Commodore computer.  Yet people keep buying Silvias.  

Anyone up for Pong?

when the young guys don't know about ancient crap we grew up with, crying is probably more appropriate

Gawd, I was really excited when my CP/M machine came with TWO 5.25" floppy disc drives . . . I mean, one could hold the program, and I could store files on the other!

You spoiled so and so!
I had a CoCo from Rat shack, I special ordered it to have 16K of ram! It cost more than $700 in 1978 dollars! They came stock with 4K :D I had to load programs that I wrote (good luck with finding an off the shelf program that had much useful in it) from a Cassett deck, I had to save the programs like 5 times in a row as data bits were nearly always dropped and if you did not have lots of backups, you had to start all over again :P.

THEN after you ran your program, you had to save back to the Cassett deck, multiple times so you did not loose anything!

TWO FLOPPIES, you spoiled brat! :P

Feed the newbs, starve the trolls and above all enjoy what you drink!

Imagine what espresso equipment would be like today if it had advanced anything like Moore's Law.
