  1. I agree to leave it as is. I've had plenty of PCB boards (including Genesis boards, SNES, and TG16) boards that have had that residue on it as well. I tried cleaning the Genesis board with alcohol and it caused a permanet white residue to show up and it made it look even worse. I use a rather cheap soldering iron for replacing CMOS batteries and it works great. Here is a link to it. https://www.amazon.com/Weller-WLC100-40-Watt-Soldering-Station/dp/B000AS28UC/ref=sr_1_29?dchild=1&keywords=soldering+iron&qid=1631207349&refinements=p_72%3A1248909011&rnid=1248907011&s=hi&sr=1-29
  2. Pink Gorilla has two locations and I know by watching their Twitch Stream and following their Instagram/Facebook that they do have quite a bit of Atari stuff in stock. You can always give them a call. They are awesome. I suggest you definitely give them a try at least. There is also Another Castle Video Games and Game Gurus too.
  3. Long story short - I discovered authentic Atari Warner road show exhibit cases from Winter CES, 1982 in Las Vegas, Nevada via an employee estate type of sale at a large hotel/casino resort that I work at. I have listed one on Ebay if anyone wants to check it out. This is an amazing one of a kind piece of Atari history!! https://www.ebay.com/itm/164779704202
  4. I would say I am definitely both. I collect for certain systems because the history behind those systems intrigues more so than others. My two absolute favorites are of course Atari and Nintendo. What I love about Atari is there is always something new to learn, some tidbit or fact about a game, system or person behind the game to learn about. Makes collecting all the more fun because not only are you just collecting stuff, you have a story to tell to others and pass on the passion and enthusiam. Being a collector has allowed me to discover the history behind games I never knew existed by finding these games on my quest for completing sets. I try to take at least an hour of my day and watch some of my favorite youtube channels, I have plenty of books as well that I try and read for at least 30 min before bed. My favorite is Atari Inc. Business is Fun by Curt Vendel and Marty Goldberg. That book is amazing! If you want to know history i highly recommend making some time each day to read a chapter of that book! It's well worth your time!
  5. I just recently scored one at my local game store. I haven't found one in the original box though, that is pretty cool! I know this sounds a little odd, but lately I have been finding some pretty cool vintage Atari stuff on Etsy. You might want to check there. I just recently bought a handful of Atari 2600 games as well as some Wii U titles from Etsy and it was pretty easy and straight forward. Have you also heard of Mercari? That is a good place to check as well.
  6. Pirate cart? I'm interested if you are looking into selling.
  7. Lol yes, you don't see vintage like that in the work world anymore! My desk consists of high definition slim line monitors, a computer, no calculator (I use Windows for that) and an IP phone. I feel like nowadays there are more ways to wander off and get sucked into Google searching or playing a game on your smartphone. Back then you had binders of paper, simple analog phones and stuff that could only entertain you to an extent. We definitely live in a much busier world now!
  8. very cool! Thanks for sharing! I love how vintage everything used to be, radios, telephones, desk lamps, calculators took up 1/3 of your desk. Good ol' 80s!
  9. I was hoping if I reach out here I can figure out who manages the AtariCompendium.com website? The contact email provided on the website does not work. Thanks.
  10. I remember bidding on a Death Cart on ebay not too long ago. I want to say within the last 2 years. I almost won it!
  11. Does anyone own a Stardos Canister for the Commodore 64 they want to part with?
  12. I've heard rumors about Grid Bug, a 16K expansion module made for the Odyssey (I believe for the 200, 300, 400, etc series Odysseys) by Aquarius. Can anyone verify if that is true? I also notice that a listing for it does come up in Pricecharting too. But other than that the rumors are few and far between. Just curious if anyone has any information on how to validate if this actually exists? Or how it was marketed and sold?
  13. Looks legit to me. I own two authentic copies and it looks identical to mine.
  14. Are you interested in selling it?
