Hardware, Embedded Systems Very sad news indeed. Jack Tramiel, founder of Commodore International and the man behind Atari, has passed away this past weekend. At 83, he passed away, surrounded by family and friends. People like this don't come in dozens, so we lost one of the great men of computing.

I understand. I have a PET 2001 N32 (With the Skyles Electric works V4 Basic chip), a CBM 8032, A 2040 disk drive (software upgraded to 4040), a 1541, a 1581, a printer (forgot the number) and even a 128. Most of it works. The 8032 and 2040 have some RAM chip problems and don't recognize all of their memory, but all still power up. I have pictures of my 7 year old playing on the PET. It is so cool.

RIP Jack.
