That is a respectable sum, but the chipophone is quite dear to me so I think I'll hang onto it for the time being.

So as a convenience, the operating system provides an editing buffer and some rudimentary editing commands (backspace, erase word, clear line, reprint)

Can anybody supply examples of how these listed commands may be applied to an incoming command? When can the machine decide to deprive the command of all word (i.e. erase it from the command)?

I don't think the buffer allows one to erase a word from a command that has been sent.
An example of how the buffer works is when you're typing a command in a console and, before hitting enter, decide to delete some characters to fix a typo.

GCR decoding on the fly

All nice, but I prefer MFM as it stores much more.
@reumerd
It doesn't. GCR encoding is more efficient than MFM. But an 80-track double-sided diskette format such as the Amiga will certainly hold more data than a 35-track single-sided C64 diskette, regardless of format.
