I'll start.� Here's my current workstation.� It's comprised of my C128 with dual 1541s, datasette, Retroswitch Flyer, Star Gemini II dot matrix printer, 1351 mouse (with The Boss joystick out of frame) and my Asus EeeBox that acts as a file server for the Flyer.� Because we have such limited space in our tiny house, I had to build this custom shelf so I could keep it all as compact as possible.� It actually works pretty well, although it isn't very pretty.� The shelves for the C128 and Gemini II slide in, so I can tuck them out of the way when not in use.

Very cool custom workstation! I really like the�dot matrix�integrated in�your setup,�also�the dual 1541's and the�VIC Datasette.

Here is my breadbox C64 on�my retro programming table surrounded by other classic systems.

Not visible behind it is a bare board UIEC_SD, I�destroyed my classic 1541 leaving it in a leaking shed unfortunately.

I'm planning to pick up a Datasette again soon.

I had a lot of fun actually programming on it again�prototyping an�Atari TIA to SID tracker sequencer in Commodore BASIC 2.0!� Some keys did not working fully on my C64�even after taking apart and�cleaning the keyboard�but after programming on it again they all work�great�Smile�

Commodore probably had the�best keyboard from bitd, but�the Atari 800 XL is close.

There is a classic Color Television on the table you cannot see�in the pic and a tiny Magnavox to the right that is also sometimes connected; that one only displays in B&W though the tuning bars are in red and green meaning there is nothing wrong with the color, I think I�need to find the remote to undo a setting that locked it in BW mode but it still works great.

I like playing�classics like Archon�on the C64 and�800XL�back�to back�with this setup.
