Beginning[edit]

Saw the comment about only piping the first reference. Sorry!--Charliefourzero 08:20, 23 December 2013 (CET)

No problem! In the beginning some things aren't every user clear by writing and editng articles.--Jodigi 05:53, 24 December 2013 (CET)
It's a great article.
I notice, that the KIM1-startup.jpg picture isn't there.
I suggest, some of the Commodore BASIC chapters like VIC-20, C64, C16, C128 to move into the article BASIC and the chapters of easter eggs in the new article Easter Egg. --Jodigi 07:02, 24 December 2013 (CET)
Lost the KIM-1 picture. WIll keep looking.
I agree that the BASIC stuff should move. I needed it there when trying to capture the essence of the Microsoft/Commodore relationship.
Easter Egg was going to be a new page, so that is good. --Charliefourzero 15:33, 24 December 2013 (CET)

Date Format[edit]

I noticed that some of the dates in this article have been changed from little-endian to middle-endian format. I used "24 December 2013" which is what the majority of the world uses - this is particularly true of all Wikis (date stamp, signature, etc). Using "December 24, 2013" is only common to the USA. Doesn't little-endian, with the least significant bit first, make more sense?--Charliefourzero 15:47, 24 December 2013 (CET)

If the date standard in wikis day month year, it is better of course. But i don't know which countries are only using the middle-endian format. --Jodigi 20:32, 24 December 2013 (CET)
According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Date_format_by_country, Belize, Micronesia, Palau, and USA only use Month-Day-Year.--Charliefourzero 22:14, 24 December 2013 (CET)
So I agree to use the "day-month-year" format. --Camailleon 10:56, 25 December 2013 (CET)
