Just letting the Inty forum know I co-host (along with Randy Kindig) the latest episode of Floppy Days Podcast, in which we talk with Dave Rolfe and Frank Palazzolo about the Intellivision Keyboard Component.

 

Have a listen: http://floppydays.li...board-component

Thanks for sharing Paul.  This is like having two Intellivisionaries episodes in one month!  For those who are curious, this hasn't happened since Sept 2015.  Always enjoy listening to David Rolfe.  I think his brain moves faster than he can talk!  :)  His interviews are very informative.  The only interview I enjoy more is the ones from Tom Loughry.  Really looking forward to the Space Patrol episode (in May?).

Thanks, it's always a pleasure to talk to Dave (perhaps he'll see this thread and chime in). And I've been trying to line up another interview with Tom, although he hasn't responded to my recent requests.

I enjoyed the podcast, though I admit I understood very little of the technical stuff.

 

It's always interesting to hear Dave Rolfe's memories of his work and contributions. The conversation with Frank was downright exciting, with his update on the software restoration work and progress on emulating the KC.

 

The notion of a KC on a cartridge is a wild idea. It's too late for me to use it to do my 1980 taxes, but I could still benefit from the Dr. Art Ulene Weight Loss Program if it's out there!
