Chief Chef

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 01 September 2014 · 8 views

I decided to spice up the gameplay (no pun intended.) So instead of making this like Fatso! (which the original idea kind of did in my head.) I changed the mad bomber into the chief chef. And he's throwing food at you. Your job is to catch the food in sets. There are four types of food. And, for instance, if you catch a slice of cheese, you must avoid the...

Was Einstein wrong? (Howell's Theory of Relativity)

$10000 reward?, John Howell and 5 more...

I was looking for something else and found this article that I cut out from the Greensboro News & Record newspaper. I'm guessing that it was from around 1994. When I cut out the article, I forgot to keep the top of the paper that had the date.
 
What happened with John Howell and his book? Did he give up? Was he proven wrong? I must be using the...

Fishing Derby (Activision, Atari VCS, 1980)
 
There are actually Fish Derbies in the real world, which I don't expect to be shocking news to any of you. However I thought reading the rules to one would be interesting.

The Return of the Judder

Er, wrong space saga  ;)
 
 
 
Nathan and I aren't in agreement on pretending the pixels are square - Nathan doesn't like how the left/right movement is a different speed than up/down movement when we treat the Atari's pixels as though they were square, while I don't like...

Up close & personal with the "Lotharek HxC Rev. F" floppy emulator

Up close & personal with the "Lotharek HxC Rev. F" floppy emulator One of the things many returning TI'ers say when coming back into the community is, "How do I get programs or disk images over to the TI? "  Well, there are lot's of ways to do it, but most are slow and require cables, programs, and yes, even a program on the TI... it's a catch 22.  With this device installed, it's easy to have stuff up and run...

Radio AM stations

The last time I listened to radio AM band in my region, they were only two AM stations left.
 
Today, all AM stations are gone.
 
 
PS: I rarely listen to radio anyway.

My Experience Making an Original Xbox Eeprom Reader

Posted by frankodragon in Frankodragon's Blog Stuffs, 26 August 2014 · 102 views

There are many tutorials describing on how to make an eeprom reader for the original Xbox console and then there are readers you can buy.  So thinking after all the projects I've fried over the years, maybe it was better to buy one.  Problem is I could get one overseas and pay $20+ for one and maybe use it a few times.   So I went ahea...

Two more potential next gen gamers have come into this world.

Posted by Dragon Princess Yushira in DPYushira's Entertainment Blog, 25 August 2014 · 87 views

Earlier today, my middle older sister Renea just gave birth to two twin daughters. Brings the next gen total to five for my immediate family's generation (2 boys and 3 girls). Their names are Bridgette and Felicia which are mom and aunt Pan's middle names respectively. The future of gamers is started to look good assuming they become gamers but no one wil...

Here's my take on 20th Centrury Fox' Six Pack (http://www.atariprot...n3/unknown3.htm ). The label art is from the DVD release, promotional flyer/catalogs featured only the name "Six Pack", no boxart, no screenshots.

TILES212.APP - old game updated for Diamond GOS

Posted by Pack007 in Diamond in the Rough, 17 August 2014 · 126 views

I was waiting for the Diamond GOS APP store to open before I posted this game. I finally figured it wasn't going to happen - soon. So here is the Tiles game that will give you something to play while we wait.



As you can see, I got out the old Zenith Data System monitor and removed the Windows NT computer from my desk. I like the color green. It may ha...

Coursera vs UMN

Posted by scrottie in scrottie's Blog, 12 August 2014 · 94 views

Coursera is free, or $50 a course if you want a "verified certificate", where they make an attempt to verify your identity and that you are there while the tests are taken.  Courses are across broad topic ranges and include some solidly advanced, nerdy stuff.  There's no admissions process and it isn't accredited.  Assistance is from peers,...

I just don't understand........

Posted by PacManPlus in PacManPlus' Blog, 12 August 2014 · 160 views

Back in 2011, 8 months after I moved to Florida from Long Island, my best friend of 33 years (at the time) was diagnosed with throat cancer. He did smoke, but was not a heavy smoker (like someone who would go through packs a day).
This cancer eventually spread to his lungs, and he tried many different (even experimental) procedures to shove the cance...

I kinda like soldering

Posted by mos6507 in mos6507's Blog, 09 August 2014 · 114 views

I live in pretty cramped conditions, and I don't really like soldering with my daughter around.  Right now I'm soldering on a table in her room, so when she comes back in September I really will have no good place to do it separate from her room.  But I am getting kind of a mini-nostalgia thing going doing the AtariVox+ soldering.  I feel a...
