|Re: [PLUG] How to Archive Data for 20 Years?|
I had a VIC-20 and the cassette drive, but no modem. It went to my parents' attic once I moved on to an Apple IIc.Several years ago I posted it on craigslist as a "free to good home" item. Surprisingly, a student from Swarthmore contacted me and said they had a retro computing club there. She came up on the train to get it, and wrote me a week later saying it was working for them. I can't believe it would still be working today, but at least for a while in the mid-2000s there was a VIC-20 in use. Anyone on the list know if the club still exists?
