  1. Also, note that @SoulBuster has recently provided copies of COMPUTE! Bonus Disks for August and October 1987 in their impressive personal software preservation thread. and
  2. I saw the last post a few months ago, and it's been in the back of my head ever since. Since then I looked through my old disks and found three that aren't already posted, but discovered I had a dead 1050 power supply. Fast forward to last week, where I acquired a new power supply and was able to duplicate the following Compute! Disks to add to the collection. COMPUTE! Disk January-March, 1987 - Vol 9, Nos 1-3 COMPUTE! Disk April-June 1987 - Vol 9, Nos 4-6 COMPUTE!

  3. Watching this now, wanted to share.
  4. I voted for X-E-G-S. I also say N-E-S and Super N-E-S for those consoles. My kids say ness and sness, for what its worth. I should ask them what they’d call the XEGS.
  5. I'm sure it's been mentioned in other threads, but there is a fairly good telling of the Jawbreaker story in the book Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution by Steven Levy.
  6. I really enjoyed Acrobat, published in Compute! in February 1985 (Issue 57; Vol 7, No 2). https://archive.org/details/1985-02-compute-magazine/page/n57/mode/1up It was Temple Run before there was a Temple Run.

  7. I could be wrong, but the words won't match up for you to mate two cartridge holders together.
  8. I had only purchased one copy of Computer Shopper back in the day and I remember typing in the Response Analysis Program from the September 1985 issue. It was an Eliza-like therapy simulation, and was good for a laugh. (My juvenile mind figuring out how to trigger the "same to you, buster!" response) Now thanks to the work of @Allan and @Atari_Ace I have been able to experience it again. I've attached an ATR with the program if anyone is interested. Computer_Shopper_Sept_1985-RAP.atr
  9. I had an issue with my 800xl where sometimes I’d get a green screen and other times a black screen. It took swapping the PIA to get mine operational.
  10. Looking forward to today’s presentation at virtual VCF East. Break a leg, @tschak909
  11. Me too. It was my first thought upon reading the topic title.
  12. A display cabinet is a great idea. I’m gonna have to keep an eye out for something similar. Thank you for the idea.
  13. Picked this up in a recent eBay auction... needs some work on the keyboard: 466275 #153 AW490365 4/15
