  1. Oh, man...I am just hearing about Curt's passing a month-and-a-half after it happened. I hadn't checked the AtariAge forums since mid-summer and thought I would take a look at the XM thread on the 7800 forum for updates and saw the sad, sad, news. RIP, Curt...I never got to meet you, but your passion on these forums was infectious and inspiring!
  2. Holy Thread Revival, Batman!
  3. Yep, agree 100%! I hope you decide to go this route, Curt!
  4. Holy Crap! I hadn't checked on the status of the XM for two years and a thought popped into my mind today to check on its status. Awesome job, Curt! Looking forward to ordering one here on AtariAge! Now, we just need to get this virus under control...
  5. I was finally able to order my set today off the pre-order email! Looking forward to getting them.
  6. Starwander, just sent you a PM. I actually just finally got to your email from October 14 today! Yes, been busy. Anyway, please see my PM regarding my pre-order and the question that I pose. Thanks! EDIT: Yes, I am one of the heretics who put his name down and haven't ordered yet. I am hoping to soon to support Starwander!
  7. Great find! Funny that you mention Astro Wars, as I have been going through the No Quarter podcast backlog (when Carrington Vanston was still on it), and someone sent them feedback regarding Astro Wars in reference to their Quasar episode. I just listened to it yesterday, in fact. Supposedly, Astro Wars was never officially released in North America. It is a Zaccaria game from Italy. The way the listener feedback went was that some company ripped off Astro Wars from Zaccaria and released it as a bootleg to the North American market. So yes, I would say if it is a North American version, it would be rare. You can hear the feedback about Astro Wars on the Karate Champ episode at the beginning (in regards to the prior episode, Quasar).
  8. Yeah, Chicago seems to have the lionshare of arcades in America. The epicenter of old Coin-Op, I suppose. My mom lives in Plainfield and my best friend (best man in my wedding) lives in Lisle. Whenever I get back to visit, I usually hit up Galloping Ghost. However, with my mom living in Plainfield, I need to check out Chicago Street Pinball in Joliet (downtown Joliet, right?). Here in the Cincinnati area, we have a small chain called "Arcade Legacy." Their original location is in a dead mall up in Forest Park. And when I say dead mall, I mean it. The only thing still alive in the actual mall itself is the arcade (kinda ironic, if you think about it...an arcade keeping a mall alive when the rest of the mall arcades went out long ago). They also have a Bass Pro as an anchor store, but those are literally the only inhabitants in this run down urban wasteland. If any of you are in the Cincinnati area, you should check out...not just for the arcade, but to scope out the eeriness of the mall. Besides that one, their other locations are Arcade Legacy Bar Edition in Northside and Arcade Legacy Kentucky in Newport, which is the closet to me. Both decent locations. However, my favorite is 16-Bit Barcade in Over-The-Rhine next to downtown Cincy. Great atmosphere, happenin' location, and good game selection. Definitely my favorite of the Cincinnati arcades. If pinball is on your mind, however, check out my local comic shop in Florence, Kentucky on US 42. Comics2Games is half comic and RPG/board game shop, and half a pinball parlor. About 12 tables playable and the front counter dispenses quarters.
  9. I got my game about a week or so ago. I haven't played it yet, but Jasper, just want to say the packaging and presentation looks very professional! Looking forward to finding some time to play it soon.
  10. You may have to PM Ninjabba to his account here on AA. He says his website was having problems, as I signed up twice on his site and he informed me he never got the sign-up. Some sign-ups went through to him and others did not. I PMed him a month ago and I am still waiting as well. I think he is working his way through the sign-ups that did go through on the website, and then he will start on the "PM" people. Unfortunately, you may be waiting longer if you were affected by the website problems like some of us.
  11. No junk email from either time I signed up. I never received the email, unfortunately. Also, Ninjabba PMed me and said that my email wasn't registered to his site even though I signed up twice. So, it does sound like something on Wordpress's end.
  12. Looks awesome, Ninjabba! I think I have subscribed twice to your site, but never got that email...so, PM incoming to you!
  13. Just a word processor at my dad's CPA firm. The firm is now dissolved, but I remember arranging their file room as a summer job in the mid-90s and they had the 8-inch disks still in storage there along with their word processors. So, not technically a computer, but still have seen actual 8-inch disks with actual data on it!
  14. Yep...me too! Looking forward to getting mine this week. Oh, and Eightbit, I managed to snag a copy of BoP 1990 for the Apple IIgs for 99 cents on eBay, so no worries about making me that original BoP disc! BUT, thank you so much for offering and helping with the Setup Disk!
