Commodore CBM 8032

Commodore CBM 8032

An ancient, but functional, Commodore CBM 8032. The first computer I had ever used was one of these back in 1981. Learned Waterloo Basic (a structured Basic) on it. Picked this one up locally many years ago but it just sat around collecting dust and taking up space. Gave it away to a "collector" who’s now trying to sell it for $2400, good luck with that, but at least maybe if someone thinks it has that kind of value, it won’t end up in a land fill or recycled. Picture was taken the morning I gave it away. The keyboard wasn’t fully working so I was trying to type something timely – Canada had just won it’s first home gold medal in the men’s moguls.

8032 – Reminiscing

8032 - Reminiscing

I’m bringing this photo forward 11 1/2 years for a reason. Last night there was a power surge and my big computer system bit the dust. Kaput. And since it was 7 years old — but still pretty much state of the art if that is possible — it wasn’t worth the cost to fix it.

I’m on a backup machine now, which lets me do some online things. However, my 37TB storage is not available here, nor is any photo processing software. I’m out of business in that regard until the NEW, super puter gets here. Will be quite a step up, but one I wasn’t expecting to make just yet.

So I go back to the very early days of home computing. From the beginning I was a Commodore guy until that company stepped away from general home computing. Went IBM, then IBM compatible, then, quite a few years ago, all computers were custom-designed and custom built. How time flies when we’re having fun.

Ancient artifacts uncovered during an exhausting, dangerous (and rather dusty) excavation. A lot of crawling under shelves and tables was involved.
