If you want to know what Jesus would say and do you should read The Bible yourself. He's quoted heavily in the first half of the New Testament. Don't listen to what Christians these days say he would or wouldn't do or say. Obviously they don't actually read it themselves and don't know because you have gained a seriously warped idea of what Jesus actually stood for. Most of the lessons his famous parables are meant to teach were actually economic nature.
Oh, woops, thanks, my bad. I thought my threshold was already at the minimum.
I'm sure its at least a violation of the EULA to do so, and possibly enforceable too, at least in the US.
And then the post, as mysteriously as it arrived, vanished. Astroturfing expedition aborted? Its certainly much harder to imagine dirty pool is not involved now.
Who are you?
Its really easy to feel this way if its also the only real modern broadband experience you've had and things like throttling content to extort money out of content providers seems like completely acceptable behavior to you.
I can't imagine the USA holding millions of people and hundreds of square miles of territory by force.
But, ironically enough, that's basically how we got Texas in the first place.
Have you ever actually booted Linux on a raspberry pi or booted a C64 and actually used it? Your question is akin to asking "why would anyone want to ride a bicycle down the street when they could just ride the bicycle around inside the back of a 18-wheeler while it drives down the street?"
I meant to imply "when reading these marketing stats from the server end." As-in: the figures that the advertisers are paying for.
Ok, you're right. I'm sorry, that was completely pointless. In all seriousness, what is probably most telling about the time period in computing and why there is still such a following today is in the second sentence of its wikipedia page; "Listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the highest-selling single computer model of all time, independent estimates place the actual number sold between 10 and 17 million units."
While its true that shortly after that era the "IBM PC revolution" effectively fragmented individual model counts so far that counting sales based on single model figures became a pointlessly obscure metric to gauge the total picture of the market, it also remains true that at that point the highest-end IBM models could only do 4 screen colors simultaneously (compared to the Commodore's 16) and 1 sound at a time (compared to the Commodore's 3) even for years after the practical extinction of the C64 from a sales perspective, and that there is still to date no single other model of personal computer that ever achieved such market penetration, and most likely there also never will be again.
You're right, but the success of an emulator project like this is a practical prerequisite to generate enough demand for such a device.
If you weren't there, this video may sum it up the best.
Give it a 10/10 for cool and an 8/10 for interesting. I guess not everyone's experiences with the C64 had the same value.
Also, of the other machines that existing c64 emulators run on, how many of them can be powered by two 9v batteries?
But, curiously enough, they're indistinguishable from the bots.
