RE: Waaay off topic, vintage computer (companies) LONG

I visited the fab where most of the proprietary semiconductors were made for the Commodore computers.
BTW, the employees got a good screwing when the doors closed.
At the time I worked for Western Digital in THEIR fab making proprietary devices for them. I had a Pascal Microengine out in the warehouse and still have my VIC-20.....I think it had a 6502 microprocessor ... 8 bit? with something outrageous like 4 or 8kb or memory. I've got it out in the garage with the cassette player used for 'mass storage', since I couldn't afford the HD for the C-64.

In those days I was learning BASIC. Good times.
Too much is never enough
