    WOW! Now THERE is a throw back to days of old.

    Id be surprised if anyone here (or most at least) were anywhere near a computer when the C64 was the latest/greatest , Well other than OLD me.. That was somewhere around early 1980's. I remember the really cool upgrade from Vic-20, with C64 you got memory expansion in the high tech from of a cassette tape! whooohooo.

    Really amazing how far we have come in about 30 years only huh?

    Thanks for the memory..

    well... i still try to consider myself young (out of desperation) being born 75... at least i consider myself being perfectly timed along current computer evolution. so my first was a vic20 and second a c64, left out amiga and several others untill i bought a pc. but thats never the same. if you have smelled the joy of simplicity and creativity once in messing with those authentic devices you got infected. then you can tell a bloated product without spirit from a adorable, honest concept that is both plain and scalable just by having a real soul... a phone is a potential match per se and the pre certainly hit the bulls eye *mad chuckle*

    (omfg now i surely am outed being a lamer ^.-)

    Um, doesn't that have too much ram? Mine only had 5k, with about 3.5k available. You must have one of them there "expansion cards" that I was not aware of until today.

    Thanks though, these are awesome. May I request a C128 model? I made the BIG jump from the VIC-20 to the C128, so I got the 2-for-one upgrade. That's when my programming really took off.

    gosh i have to admit that i cannot tell at all if the shot is authentic because i just really forgott about it

    i just took a shot of VICE/... which usually is pretty much authentic still being generic for that device family... but probably some setting in the emulator defaults to a memory expansion which they thought is neccessary to do somthing with it at all ...but still you are right: if its not the original ist must not go in a wallpaper on a pre! =)

    you are welcome... its not a lot of efford to throw in a c128/c128d shot... but... there again starts choice... different versions and did the d had more memory? i guess you want it in non-64-mode (of course) ?

    still i think the c128 was the beginning of failing to be and grow as what the c64 was...

    ...will we have the very same conversation about the pre and the pre plus in 30 years?

    I downloaded VICE and fired up the VIC-20 emulator.. it correctly shows 3583 bytes free. I guess I could have done the work to turn that into a wallpaper...

    I just realized one MAJOR flaw with these wallpapers... it looks like it's running on my phone so I feel like when I type it should show up on the emulator screen!

    absolutely... so feel free to release a wallpaper that displays the correct memory... i have no idea but my vice 1.19 (wich is a little out of date) keeps telling me 28159 but it seems to was quite common to have an extension plugged in those days (even when i hadnt myself)

    a port of c64 to webos is theoretically a very small step:

    jsc64
    (this project is pretty amazing and entertaining when you go into the source and find a clean impelementation of a 6510 processor in javascript)

    but i would love to see a vice port on webos still

    That is actually what I came back in here to post... Since there are SDL-based binaries of VICE, I would think it would be possible. In theory at least. I mean, they ported DOOM!

    yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes

    btw (gadfly note): i think i heared once that apple wont let such thing run on their phones for it is a runtime capable of running untrusted code just like shockwave action script etc. thank god i own a webos phone
