puck daddy posted on twitter that he's pushing 40 on the number of people willing to donate 64 dollars in the name of his favorite charity, should Commodore use the number.

Nope its 64 pre afro hairdo, I love that there is a guy on the team I can just refer to as a # :yowza:

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

You'd probably have better luck running an emulator these days. I'm guessing that even if you could get the thing to boot (and find an adaptor for your TV), those 5.25" floppies gave up the ghost long ago.

Anyway, back on subject... if he dons #64, I will be the first in line for his jersey. The only thing cooler would be if he could rock the number ",8,1"

I'm getting lost in all of the techno-talk here, but did you just imply that our new defenseman has a 5.25" floppy? How on earth would you know about that?

On second thought... never mind.

That makes little sense though, because the screen was always blue. Windows is the blue screen of death...

I never said it was factually accurate! Sometimes you have to reach to make analogies... oh well, I think Esquire pretty much knocked it out of the park already anyway!

There's a dirty joke somewhere in here about a 5 1/4 floppy...

Post of the year!
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

My commodore had a cassette drive, not a floppy.
My older sister once wrote code for days so that a hot air balloon would fly across the screen.
I recorded my voice over the code like a day or two later.

She was PISSED!

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.

I think a Wing's player having a Twitter account is fantastic for team PR since a lot of fans now look at the Wings as being "old" and having a player with Twitter is kind of trendy. I'm feeling pretty positive about having C64 in the lineup this year, even if at the very least, it shines some light into the day-to-day things going on with the Wings. I think if he and the team play it right, there's a lot of potential.

Oh, and I don't think there are any Wings with Twitter but there are some a couple prospects:

- Tomas Jurco (@Jurky13)

Let me preface this by saying I am married to a long time computer geek/techno wizard. So I've had to learn a little about computers over the years (although it seems to have gone in one ear and out the other just as fast).

The Commodore 64 computers are still in use by a lot of amateur radio operators. Don't ask me why, but they like them. In fact, I think my other half has one up in the loft of our barn that someone was going to throw out. I don't why he saved it, but he did.

Far from being obsolete, they serve a purpose in a small but important niche. Perhaps that is the best way to look at it.

I don't care if the Wings ever make the playoffs again, as long as he wears that number.

Yep they were like Atari Cartridges.

Oh, and I would be pissed too.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

I think my friend still has a Commodore 64-I'm going to bring it to the game when the Wings come to MTL and throw it onto the ice if Commodore scores.

Hell, NASA still uses TRS-80 computers for some mission-specific calculations- they work, no need to change them. A friend of mine on another forum has been tasked with finding parts for them when he was stationed at Canaveral- said it was nearly impossible.
