Those 2 CIAs that I ordered, they were at my door yesterday. I promptly installed them. That worked.... But, the RAM that came from the factory, DEAD, guess I'm up Schitssons Creek without a paddle... NOT!!! I am so proud that I am a packrat when it comes to parts. I had a full 64K of RAM I scavenged from an ATARI 800xl that died on me. Recycling is such a beautiful thing. Before doing a "test firing" of my beloved C64, I put new heatsink grease, after cleaning off the old 20someyearold crap, on the VIC. Up next??? I don't know, SOMETHING!
