Yeah that's just ASKING for a finger strain injury to happen. We just can't ask that much of you, Cmart.

I would like to propose a re-release or the episode with the censor bleep, and a different jpg for the show. It would make an official variant of the release, something for collectors like my man CMart to get. Also increasing Steve C’s notoriety as the first interviewee to slip one past the Reynolds editing department.

The censoring department was a bit lax this episode. Several iterations of the word "can't" were allowed through. And in the case you mention, the nickname for "Richard" was deemed acceptable. They had no comment on the quality or class of interviewees.

Heh. That sounds like a great use of my time! But actually, Dz holds that honor, slipping a four letter word past the censors back in episode 4 (which was never corrected in a followup MP3).

With some exceptions (like the aforementioned episode 4), the Reynolds departments are not affiliated with the editing or censoring departments.

Haha! But will there be a box and overlays to go with that?

Strangely, given the crowd, that is not a euphemism, every time he ordered steak or prime rib he got shafted.
I, on the other hand, had just gotten my braces off the day before and had the best steak and prime rib I've had in 2 and a half years :)

150 hours. That's longer than an entire PRGE (including setup/teardown). You could stream, without repetition, for the entire event.

 

Just sayin'.... :D

Great episode. Loved hearing Keith tell his stories. I still cant believe he is gone. This is a game Ive done a complete 180 on. I used to think it was one of the worst games on the intellivision way back when, but now it really is one of the most intellivision-ished games on the system and I really enjoy it. :)

I found out that with the five digit access codes, the first digit is the track number and the second digit is the target sector (3/4/5). So you only have to remember the last three digits. That's if you are playing without a pencil.

Hmm.. that's something I didn't notice. Looking at the notebook I wrote in while playing, that certainly looks to be the case. Interesting.

Paul mentioned that he got Solar Sailer for free with a Mattel Electronics offer with some proof of purchase.  In Canada Mattel was not so generous, they offered a $5 rebate with the purchase of any Intellivoice cartridge.  My B17 Bomber cartridge has the part number cut out of the box and below is a scan of my original rebate offer with the form I cut out.  The Intellivoice was CA$80 and the cartridge was around $40, so B17 Bomber was one expensive game.  The offer was good for purchases until August 15 1983.  There is no start cutoff date, so it could have been used with cartridges purchased when they first came out in 1982.

I don't recall seeing that offer, but I t's possible it was available concurrently in the US as well. My Solar Sailer was definitely free - as I mentioned in the episode, I believe it was related to the purchase of an Intellivoice and proof of purchase of additional non-Intellivoice games.
