I just like to comment that I like the theme song \"SWEET\". I hope the $9000 figure of commodore 65 prototype will decline to $800 in coming days ;-)

Thanks for the mention of Retro Robotics. It was something that was really exciting in the 80\'s and I wish that it was something that caught on. Can you imagine what a Personal Robot would look like today had it the same momentum of the Personal Computer!
