While reading a Slashdot story on a Curses library (.pdf) version of GTK (The Gimp Toolkit) called Cursed GTK, I found a link to Contiki, a "highly portable, modern, open source, Internet-enabled operating system and desktop environment for very constrained systems, such as 8-bit homecomputers like the Commodore 64." You can access Ethernet using this special NIC. Can it get better? Oh yes. You can access a Commodore 64 remotely using a special version of VNC called CTK VNC by visiting this site. Above is a screenshot of the page when I used the Java VNC client. Not only was this site offering remote VNC access, it was also serving up web pages!
