  1. Well, that is edited out in the final version of the film. Look away from the stand...
  2. Oh I want that shirt!! Love Mad Magazine and Atari. Ok, another thing I like is Moon Patrol. Wouldn't say I am the biggest fan, but it did have an impact on my childhood. So imagine how happy I was when I ran across a hotwheel moon buggy looks amazingly like the one in Moon Patrol. Thought I would share that today... This apparently was the Radar Ranger in 1988, which is seven years after Moon Patrol. I guess they were a fan too.
  3. Hmmm... Atari only for the modem music? Wonder with term program? (not sure if that was mentioned). Wonder if the service that gave Dark Forces a dialup number when you dial in would let you use the hayes modem protocols?
  4. What do you call a sheep covered in Chocolate?   A candy baa!

      I didn't think that joke was too baaaad.

  5. Something I got from "The Black Hole" group on facebook... BLUE MAX!!
  6. I can agree with that. Still Frogger is a good time.
  7. Goodbye Fry's, hello Micro Center.

      Micro Center should consider setting up shop in Slidell.

      Fry's was pretty cool when I first went to one, 20+ years ago. I looked forward to visiting the stores and looking at all of the stuff I couldn't afford (but wanted to buy). As Radio Shack deteriorated, Fry's became one of the few retail stores where you could buy stuff for electronics projects. They had a huge selection so you could compare different brands and had competitive prices. My HDTV was bought there, and I got a great deal on it.

       

      That was in 2007.

       

      Over subsequent years, the stores deteriorated. There were fewer products, the displays fell apart, demos didn't work, entire sections weren't restocked, and the employees just seemed to stop caring. I don't recall the last time I went into a Fry's. I certainly didn't buy anything the last several times I went in either, because they didn't have what I was looking for.

       

      Online retailers often get blamed for the death of brick-and-mortar retailers like Fry's, Radio Shack, Sears and Toys 'R' Us. But if you really look at how the stores were run, and what a miserable experience in-person shopping became, they did it to themselves.

       

      The nearest Micro Center to me is in Tustin. 85 miles away, on the other side of Los Angeles. Not visiting anytime soon.

      Micro Center opened here about 12 years ago.  Still appears to be busy and doing OK, thankfully!

       

      I'm so spoiled with their SD and MicroSD cards at the cash register.  I get a new one every trip just because they are so cheap.  I am flush with 32/64GB micro SDs.

       

      Not to mention the only place where you need "X" cable or part.  They will have it.  Not even Radio Shack would compare back in the day.  Have even gotten fiber network cables there during a work emergency.

       

       

  8. I understand some BBSs used to have mods that could be played while visiting?
  9. Hey I love music player collections like this. Anyone know where I can find more AMP, and the A.M.S. Music disks? I remember once seeing an archive of hundreds of AMS disks.
  10. This is a great addition to my incogneto 800 setup. Where can I find more music demos like this?

    Hah... sounds like you've had some recent days similar to what some of us in Texas experienced. Good to see you again, and good news on the prototype boards.
  12. Oh there it is! Thank you. Any other emulators I've missed?
  13. So please help catch me up on systems that the Atari 8 bit line now emulates. Here is what I know of so far... Apple II - (This posted 2008) Commodore Pet - (version 0.6 as of 2009) Chip8/SuperChip8 - (link worked as of 2010 but not there now)(link as of 2019) ZX Spectrum 16k ("zXEmulator") - (link worked as of 2010 but not there now)(this posted in 2007) And there was once an Asteroids version that runs off the arcade roms that I can't currently find. Would love to know where to find the above emulators and links to any other emulators that have been written. Emulators are always fun to play with. Any progress on an Atari 2600 emulator for the Atari 8 bits ever? (one conversation on that)
  14. Yeh the 400 is a wonderful compact machine. I like how the color scheme of the 400 and 800 match so well. So wonderful... late 70s.
  15. Looks like a really cool game. Just got my Incogneto 800 up again, so have to check this out.
