Small miracles were performed in this room.  We opened every single C128 at least twice in a production line as we tweaked them for CPM or 40 column or 80 coulumn modes.

This room is actually full of people, they are moving too fast to be captured on film.

Not shown: Taped to the door behind the camera is the Commodore Death List. If you were an Ass you made the list.
