It’s… alive!

Now I got a power supply, and after some cleaning of the C64 motherboard, it starts. And the 15 year old disks are still mostly working! Hooray! The next step is to connect the 1541 or 1570 disk to my Linux PC by soldering an XM1541 cable… The problem is that I have only one original serial cable and cannot kill that to make the XM1541…
