I am depressed that the sexy vintage auction is for an item that came out the year I graduated from high school.

I might find the whole retro facination for Commodore 64 cool were it not for the fact that every day online I encounter some story or post that mentions Commodore 64, usually in a somewhat sad attempt to display technogeek hipness.

I mean, really--it's like getting a hard-on over a toaster.
