Avatars (you envision) for other TI users here on Atari Age!

Tue Jun 20, 2017 10:34 PM

Okay, it was nice to have a few minutes to fart around this evening.  So what did I do with that valuable time... I made up a 'potential' new avatar for one of our esteemed members.   It will not take a rocket scientist to figure out who this one is for!  icon_smile.gif


If you have an idea for some other user, please post it.



Old technology needed for my new TV

Wed Jun 14, 2017 9:54 AM

Well, it happens... once you start hanging a bunch of classic game machines on a modern TV you start to get the same problems you had in the 1980's.  So now, like then, there is only one RF connector on the back.   A small and discrete switchbox is needed...  has anyone had any experience with

<< THIS ONE >>?  I'd prefer to get one that does not attenuate the signal.





OT: No clue where to start looking for a new PC that meets my requirements.

HELP!  Suggestions & comments welcome!


Okay, maybe I want too much in my next PC... but for MINIMUM specifications I'd like....


3 monitors at least 20" in physical size with a minimum resolution of: 1920 X 1080 each (preferably HDMI) and a fast graphics card to match.


A minimum of 16GB RAM

No clue what processor, but I want to speed up video editing projects.



Is it time for another Wikipedia update?

Wed May 24, 2017 4:18 PM

I just stopped by the Wikipedia TI-99/4A entry for the first time.  While I noticed it covered the F18A, I was wondering if an update was in order for some of the more recent and popular CONTEMPORARY HARDWARE items like the Plug-N-Play 32K and FlashROM 99 SD based multicart?

Is classic computer boredom starting to set in?

Tue May 23, 2017 7:48 PM

Is this time of the year dangerous for your classic computer hobby?  With less going on, reasons (excuses) to 'check in' to AtariAge get put on the back burner, and other things start to take priority.  


Without something new in the way of hardware or software being released, interest starts to fade, boredom sets in and we go elsewhere for our entertainment.  Have you ever switched interests, never to return to the original interest due to an absence leading to lack of interest?  For example, over the decades, my hobby has changed over about four times, each time the feeling of boredom, being separated from, or having gone as far as I could go set in.
