#4198280 Atari DOS 2.5, 3.0, XE ... anything ... and SIO cable.

I can probably help you out, but only because you live in Minden!!!

 

LOL I used to live in Doyle (Ca) but I have been to (well driven through) Minden many times.

 

I can probably just copy DOS for you and the SIO cable let me check to see how many extra I have.

#4191402 Free Sony WEGA 27" TV - pick up only - Nor Cal

What's 45 hours between a man and his WEGA?!?!?!




#4191227 Free Sony WEGA 27" TV - pick up only - Nor Cal

Posted by Grig on Sat Jan 5, 2019 1:40 PM

I am offering this here first before Craigslist. Man is this thing heavy!!! But, of course, those who enjoy the WEGA series already know this.

 

We are getting ready to do some remodeling of our house so I need to get rid of some larger bulkier items.

 

Works great, it includes the remote. It has two composite inputs and one component input.

 

The TV shell is a bit scratched up.

 

I live near Sonora, Ca and could possibly meet in Modesto or Merced for transfer.

 

PM me if interested. I won't hold on to it too long before sending it to CL.

Need more contributions, or are you set?

We are all set, but thanks very much for your offer!

I also have not seen a post that my Secret Santa got their package, although according to tracking it was delivered,

 

I also am really curious to know who sent mine, since there was no hint of that person in the contents!

Some don't post but that is not a requirement for participation ... though I do wish everyone would post pics of their Secret Santa loot because IT'S AWESOME!!!

 

I have not received any PM's about someone not receiving their Secret Santa gift except the one individual who is being rescued as we speak.

I am absolutely floored by what my Secret Santa got me ...

 

of course my previous picture of the candy and gifts ... the candy has been long gone, gobbled up within the hour.

The XA1541 cable and Star Commander CD for transferring .d64 files from my old windows XP computer to actual 1541 disks. This will be epic. I just re-booted my XP machine and it works great ... PLUS it has a working serial port just for Star Commander and my SIO2PC Atari cable. I absolutely prefer hardware/physical media (though I do love my SDrive Max!). I have a TON of old 5 1/4 inch disks just waiting for some Commodore goodness. Also some great Atari 8 bit disks - many original disks I did not have.

The Bentley Compu-Vision TV Video Game (Pong) System - BUT WAIT!!! This is not your father's Bentley system!!! IT HAS BEEN MODDED JUST FOR ... ME!!! It has composite audio/video (the picture & sound are CRISP and CLEAR!), a plug for an AC adapter (a 2600 power supply - which I have!), two inputs for Atari 2600 paddles (and I happen to have a great set of working paddles) - but the included paddles also work perfectly, and four 'MOD' switches: A randomized angle, randomized speed, internal/external paddle selector and 2 or 4 player select. Push 'Left' to enable the mods and 'Right' to disable the mods so you can use the original buttons. In a word ... AMAZING!!!!!

There was also candy, but it didn't make it to Christmas! Thanks SS!

Thanks to everyone offering to be a rescue reindeer. I will contact you in a few days to see if you are needed.

 

Also, you may begin revealing who you were SS to!

Sure seems like this year's Secret Santa is a rousing adventure. I am glad everyone is having a good time.

 

It truly is better to give than receive.

 

Thanks to everyone for making me smile when I read this thread.

A huge, padded enveloped arrived today from my Secret Santa. Since others already begun to take sneak peeks, at least I opened it up to witness how many items were inside!

Thank you, it will be fun to open the packages later as well as taste all the nutty candy.

I am seriously stoked that you got your AA SS gift BEFORE Christmas this year. I guess customs decided to randomly target someone else this year!

WOW!!! Such a fantastic Secret Santa gifting! Your Secret Santa may reveal themselves at any time (now that's a loaded statement).

 

Bravo to your Secret Santa and thanks to CyranoJ for sharing his experience. Glad you joined in this year and we look forward to having you again next year!

 

HO HO HO!
