LMAO : Commodore 64 found at MYER Centre, Brisbane, Australia

The Commodore 64 is still being used for commercial purposes. Folks from discovered this truly rare occurrence at MYER Centre main bus station terminal - Brisbane, Australia.

Someone must have reset the computer and at our shocking surprise a familiar blue screen appeared on the display. In commodore 64 days blue screen used to be a good sign, not a sign of dead Windows 98/2K. How reliable C64 is proves the fact that it is still being used to inform travelling people of 21st century.
