  1. If it tells anything about my parts stash, I'm working on a 1976 vintage video game and putting in replacement IC's with even older date codes.

      Maybe when I was 10 or so, my dad drug home several big boxes of stuff for me. Someone he knew had taken an electronics correspondence course. As he already knew a lot about electronics, he didn't build a lot of the circuits. I didn't really know what to do with all the stuff at the time, but I had already been tearing stuff apart and playing with electronics. I'm pretty sure that's where these chips came from.

      I collected a fair number of electronic parts as a kid, too, mostly from taking apart broken computers and appliances. I wish I'd kept that stuff, but it got lost somewhere during our various moves. I only started getting back into electronics in the last seven years or so.

      Thank you for using the word "vintage" correctly.
