The Commodore PET 2001 was one of the very first personal computers I remember ever seeing. The green-screened 8-bit system wasn’t very powerful, but I always loved its iconic all-in-one design. I always wanted to own one if just to put it on display, but I don’t really have the space to spare.

DIY Portable Skee-Ball Machine Doesn’t Dispense Tickets
If there’s one game I always loved playing at Chuck E. Cheese’s when I was a kid, it was Skee-Ball.
