Myself, I've been cleaning up my basement, bought a bunch of cheap shelves and finally started to put my computers out for display. Prior, they were mostly boxed up. There's no sense in leaving them boxed up, I prefer to have them displayed. I only wish I had a bigger basement! Talking about C64, I've misplaced my video cable in the clean up. Hopefully I have more than one and it will show up somewhere.
PS. Are there any common failures to note about the C64?
The two primary failures that I know of are the power supply (every one that I have ever had has failed, at some point) and the PLA chip. Both are easily fixed, as there are a bunch of aftermarket PLA replacements available. Individual Computers has a quality replacement PLA, for instance.
