  2. Excellent choice of song! But how is that 800 "fully restored" when it is obviously missing the cartridge slots' aluminum RF shield???
  3. Thanks for bringing this to our attention! Just downloaded to check it out, and I will almost certainly be purchasing a physical copy when available. Love me some old Infocom sci-fi adventures.
  4. Most excellent news! Really psyched for this.
  5. Another Florida douchebag. Been proving it to us for months.
  6. interesting stuff, I guess.. but I still fail to see how this thread demonstrates how "eBay is your servant"
  7. Not sure.. I don't live in Lansing and I've never actually attended a CHAOS meeting. I just like the name, and they did put on a three-day event at a hotel more in my neck of the woods that was a great time.
  8. #144 arrived in suburban Detroit today. Envelope split on one side (appears to be wear-thru, not cutting) but magazine looks great! I've gotta learn to read German. Disk has no apparent physical damage but will not load... starts giving BOOT ERROR after a few sectors. Tried two different drives, same result. No need to send a replacement, though. I will format and rewrite it when I can download the .ATR file.
  9. Recently made a sale to @x=usr(1536). We struck a fair deal, he paid immediately, and had a very pleasant non-atari-related conversation. Super nice guy to deal with!
  10. CHAOS - Capitol Hill Atari Owner's Society (Lansing, Michigan)
  11. One of the very few game titles that took advantage of the extra 64K in a 130XE... But an absolutely atrocious game. I still want my money back, 35 years later.
  12. It's the AC vs DC that's the problem..
  13. Imagine if this was the pack-in game for the 5200 when it launched. It's fun to re-imagine history! Sorry for the late reply, I just found this thread. I need to spend more time in the 5200 forum. I'd love to see (and purchase) an 8-bit port of this...
