I friggin' own a C64 and several Z80 machines, so don't assume you know anything about me. I just happen to also run emulators out of convenience (I'm not going to wire up my old TS to a CRT just so I can take a look at something in fuzzy) Thanks for proving the Asshole Theory of the Internet! Blow me, dickhead.
