  1. Well first, thank you for your service. Though I've never owned an Intellivision, it's very painful to hear that the system suffered such a terrible fate. If they're built anything like the 2600, it would be working like it's brand new today if it were still around. Very very painful
  2. Good afternoon (at least here anyway.) I've been collecting Atari consoles (and computers) for a few years now. I've been looking at expanding my collecting at an Intellivision (and ColecoVision.. but one at a time.) To All the InTv collectors here, what do you like most about the system? What do you like least? Is there anything I should look out for when purchasing a system or collecting for it? (I know I could google some of that, but figured I'd get more accurate and truthful answers here.) Thanks!

  4. I ran into this a few years ago. We had a big storm that spawned a few tornadoes and lost power for 3 or 4 days. Went to stay with my sister and her family.. however they had to work that weekend.. and without anything else to do found it on Youtube. watched it over the course or two days. A couple years later, I got stuck working a security account over night (sitting in my car the entire shift), hooked up the tablet to the WiFi and watched it all the way through in one sitting. I came into the scene rather late (early part of the mid 90's) but it still brought up some good old nostalgia. I would call a couple of the local boards. And since my parents didn't want me meeting any of those "crazy computer people," I snuck out to some of the meet ups. I dreamed of running my own BBS though after the popularity of the internet exploded, I thought it was a lost dream. Watching the BBS Documentary got me into wondering if any of the boards were still around. I was very excited to see many many boards were around and accessible via telnet. So I opened my own, the Black Sun BBS. Looking for more of a challenge, I am sitting with two (soon to be three) Atari 8-bit computers and planning on which one to switch my board to.

      I've been here since 2005, during my early collector years, but only really started actively participating fairly recently. At the time, DigitPress was my main Retrogaming hangout, but when I came back to the hobby, DP went the way of the dodo and this place was still super kicking so I returned here!
