It's strange to be learning to write an Atari display kernel in assembly and the Unity framework at the same time.

Seems I might have to wait for the DVD to see My Little Pony the Movie. Our local two screen theater seems hooked on the Lego Ninjago Movie and odd art films right now.

My Panasonic AG-1950 has survived 72 drops, a peanut butter sandwich in the tape-loading-mech, and my siblings. It is unstoppable. IT WENT THROUGH A FREAKING DEATH TEST THAT KILLED MY METAL PLATED WALKMAN! My 31 year old VCR is... Un-Killable.

    If only the AG-1980s were so resilient... I only need to look at one sideways and it will crap out on me.

    ^The Who? •I always loved Crazy Climber because of the way you control it, and all the places your player can put his hands. It seemed a requirement to have a different controller for every new game year after year!

Guy at work sees my Atari shirt. Next day brings me a box with about 10 games (one of them Pitfall 2) and a 2600 Vader with all the cords. Says take it, don't worry about money. I have some paying forward to do I guess.

There are times when I hate the Web. I'm trying to find the example code linked at the end of this article, but in ten short years, every last copy appears to have been systematically wiped off the face of the planet: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/articles/javase/index-142890.html

    Have you tried accessing it via the Wayback Machine? https://web.archive.org/web/20100801021330/http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/articles/javase/index-142890.html

    It's frustrating. In some cases too, as more information gets on the web, it gets trickier to cut through the fat.

    I actually get really annoyed when you ask a specific question about something and someone makes the passive aggressive comment "just google it?".

    (Psst ... the reason why I'm asking is because I've tried a bunch of different searches and haven't found what I wanted)

    Thanks! I checked the Wayback Machine, but unfortunately, the file doesn't seem to have been cached.

    I ended up recreating it myself using the code fragments given in the article. As it happens, having to rebuild the missing pieces helped me to understand it better, so it's all good.
