You may approach my throne :twisted:

It's quite spoddy really - the C2N was the tape deck for the Commodore 64. 1530 was it's model number, and the 1541 was the floppy disk that followed it :roll:
I have an image of a C64 tape deck (my word, they were slow!) tripping about the floor, closely followed by the floppy disk drive trying to keep up. :lol:

That is so the wrong way round, because the floppy disk was so much faster than the tape deck. Blimey! Imagine thinking floppies were fast!

No, but they were 15 minutes faster than a cassette.

Football Manager! That was soooooo addictive. I stayed up till 3 in the morning playing that, regularly. :roll:

"Manic Miner" that was another good one on the Commodore 64. That took 20 minutes to load, too.
What did we do for twenty minutes, while we waited for them to load? :?
