#4244620 Gateway2000 - Classic computing of sorts!

Posted by Wyluli Wolf on Mon Mar 25, 2019 8:55 AM

Wow, does this bring back memories.  I went to work for Gateway 2000 right out of high school at the South Dakota location.  My first job was working on the assembly line, in a giant warehouse, building computers.  My hours were from 4pm until 2am and most Saturdays as they were always running behind.  I sure don't miss those freezing cold winters, especially at 2am when you had to shovel out your car, pray it started (no cell phones folks) and drive home on the interstate back to Iowa.

Ted Waitt would show up on occasion, his hair always pulled back in a pony tail and bald as a cue ball on top.

 

I somehow managed to keep one of my later badges (pic below).

 

The museum in Sioux City, Iowa has a display for Gateway 2000.  There were a LOT of folks that worked there from Sioux City, myself included.  Attached are a couple photo's I took at the museum back in 2016.

#4229351 Broken Atari 2600 6-switch- how can it be fixed

Posted by Wyluli Wolf on Thu Feb 28, 2019 10:30 AM

Have you tried multiple, known good, games in the unit?

Can you perhaps post some pictures of the issue?

Are you using an NTSC Atari system on a PAL television set?




#4188932 What did you buy today?.........

I didn't have a 4-switch woodie yet.

Very nice!  If I hadn't sold my 7800 I'd be tempted!  Nice price point too.  Look forward to the updated photo's of everything!

Decided to show some love for the game by building myself a custom joystick in tribute to the Cactus himself:

Ok kids!  Tomorrow is the big day.  Let's see if that Atari system shows up on TV!

Ok kids.  I asked about when the episode might air and here is the reply:

"We would love for you and your friends to watch! This episode is scheduled to air on 11/8. Don't blink when watching or you will miss it..."

Best wishes

I decided to sell of my Atari 7800 collection.  I ultimately listed my console on eBay and it sold.  To my surprise I received this along with the payment:

 

"I'd like to use this on the tv show Young Sheldon. Can you ship using my FEDEX account #---- Please ship Standard Overnight."

 

The buyer is in Burbank California.

 

So I guess if an Atari 7800 shows up on the TV show Young Sheldon it was mine!   :D :grin: 

 

Time will tell.....

Cool!  The boxes are well worth it though!

 

Thanks Al!




#4097625 Consoles that make owning other consoles redunant

Posted by Wyluli Wolf on Thu Aug 23, 2018 11:01 AM

Aren't there 3 or 4 2600 games which won't work on the 7800?

The Atari 7800 might be capable of playing almost the entire 2600 library but most of the carts released by companies other than Atari don't fit in the slot!  




#4091471 EmuParadise has removed its entire library of retro game ROMs and ISOs

Posted by Wyluli Wolf on Tue Aug 14, 2018 2:44 PM

You've obviously not tried to download anything there.

I stand corrected sir.  Guess I expected something to be posted on their home page or somewhere obvious.  You have to click on the tiniest question mark to get to this page:
https://www.emuparad...se-changing.php

 

Ah well.  It was expected.  I had hoped to get the rest of the 3DO games downloaded that I needed before they went belly up.

:(  'Signals the soldiers to begin playing "military taps".

Interesting article but as far as I can see, Emuparadise is still up and running just fine....
