  1. Does anybody know of any arcades between Daytona Beach and Palm Bay, Florida?

  2. Just bought the 7800 Pac-Man collection as an early birthday present for my middle daughter. ...And Scramble for me. :)

      Well thank you, Trebor!

      Yes, these should be fun indeed.

  3. I've finally started making a simple Atari 7800 game.

      Just a simple shooter of sorts. Nothing very impressive. Won't hold a candle to Bob's stuff, naturally. But I've wanted to make something for over a year now, and RevEng's 7800basic puts this within even my humble reach.

      Have to start somewhere, worlds better than most of us - yours truly included. Keep at it! :)

      Nice! I bet it'll look and play cool when it's done.

  4. Can anyone suggest some New Wave acts that have become more obscure over the years?

      Thanks, folks! Nice ideas. Heaven 17's obscurity is something that happened to other people, BTW. :-D Ahh, and Classix Nouveaux! Good call there!

  5. Here's a neat little package someone put together to (somewhat loosely) replicate the old TV experience. Not perfect, but a bit of fun. http://mydecadetv.com

      Fabulous concept, thanks for the link!

  6. There are some cheap Mattel Aquarius computers being sold as-is on eBay right now. No mini expanders. Still, if I didn't have one, I'd take a chance.

      Ah well ... you still got a good deal. Just keep an eye out for loose Mini Expanders and controllers; they turn up at reasonable prices from time to time.

      I have an Aquarius in its box. It works, but no controllers or such for it.

      PS - Thanks for pointing this out. It's fun to try something new. Appreciate the advice.

      I was thrown off. You forgot the last "down".

    4. MAC-42

      MAC-42

      When they repeat it after "Would you recognize me," it has the extra "downs." After "Will you stand above me," it's three. (I've had such a wonky week, I really had to think about that one for a minute or two!)

       

      Goodness, this song sounds like a football game now, what with all these downs.
