  1. have you ever tried plugging a video touch pad into a DB-9 connector, rigging stuff up to it and pressing buttons to make the stuff work, just to have it not work when small things do? well the reason is the contacts on the rubber keypad. they give a lot of resistance. so what yoou need to do is open it up, and put a little bit of glue on the rubber contacts, then place a small bit of tinfoil, just enough to cover the contact, on the contact, then press down, and when that has been done, you have a video touch pad that could (possibly) switch house current! (I wouldn't recommend it)

I'd donate a machine to help start a real life BBS and I'd be glad to take you up on that offer! you can contact me further at [email protected] I have several hundred machines anything from 64K 600xl's to 130xe's and just about everything in between Ed really all I need is A: atari 400 AV+AC adapter, B: Atari made modem, C: atari made disk drives, and D: well, some interest.

    dolphin?

    just found at goodwill for 1.50 each, in box with instructions, centepede (loving it), pac man, combat, frogger (box only, free), and dolphin. the boxes are in excellent condition, and I was wondering about the dolphin game. any info suck as rarity or asking price?
  16. post your pics, and feel free to rant about how good (or bad) your collection is! I'll post some pics of my collection as soon as it is spiffy
  17. How many is it then? This is why I was asking you for specifics. hmm... I'd guess about 3,427,789 3/4 cartridges are buried there, is that specific enough?
  18. for $5 at a flea market I picked up a NES game case, ghost busters, strawberry shortcake w/manual,pitfall 2 w/manual(loving it), boxed enduro w/ some shrinkwrap, and a sonic the hedgehog cookie crisp flip card at local goodwill; kenner action sports football (1980's hand held) $.50 w/original batteries that had juice. $2 each boxed centipede, pac-man, dolphin, and combat for free frogger box+manuals $.99 marble madness 5.25" floppies in folder PM me for pics the goodwill I talked about also had a complete genny 2 in the front cabinet but someone used sticky tack to keep the cords in the right place and they had 2 SNES controllers plus all of the adapters but no console for 4.99. that goodwill is in colorado, and we just moved from there so when we came back they had all the cool stuff where as when we lived there everything was really lame. here in nebraska Gamers is the authority, and they charge $60 for an NES! complete and re-chipped BTW. but the genny's are only $9.99! anyways just thought I'd post this here P.S. also picked up bank heist and fantastic voyage for $.98 each
  19. How many is it then? This is why I was asking you for specifics. The carts wouldn't have been crushed until they actually arrived at the landfill. And, yes, I know it was supposedly a big pit. Regardless, it's not the task of burying 5 million carts that I find difficult to believe, it's that Atari would have that many to bury in the first place. As far as the games being out of their boxes, I doubt that many retail outlets would have been willing to accept cart-only returns. And, even if they were, and a substantial portion of the buried games were loose, 5 million is still 5 million. Five million copies of E.T. sold and nearly all returned? That's another image that defies credulity. Indeed, I agree with you, if close to as many E.T. carts came back as were produced, then E.T. would be much rarer. Of course, E.T. isn't rare. It's one of the most common 2600 games out there, so the number of E.T. carts that were allegedly dumped must have been far, far fewer than 5 million. That only supports the point I'm trying to make. Five million is the number that's out there. And if you're asking me whether I believe that, the answer is no I don't. No matter how you mix and match it, 5 million is a figure that doesn't add up. I question the 5 mil. too
