  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

  4. I could be wrong, but the words won't match up for you to mate two cartridge holders together.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. Looking forward to today’s presentation at virtual VCF East. Break a leg, @tschak909
  8. Me too. It was my first thought upon reading the topic title.
  9. A display cabinet is a great idea. I’m gonna have to keep an eye out for something similar. Thank you for the idea.
  10. Picked this up in a recent eBay auction... needs some work on the keyboard: 466275 #153 AW490365 4/15

    It was the postal system. Slovakia Post to USPS.

    In case anyone was curious as to current shipping times to the US for and AVGCART, @tmp sent mine on 17 Aug, and I received it on 27 Aug. 10 days isn't bad considering the state of international shipping these days. Thanks, tmp! This device is really great.
  13. SIO pin 10 is +5V/Ready and in Mr Robot's diagram is wired to the 5V pin on the underside of the Arduino. I just inserted a switch on that wire, so that the switch opens/closes the circuit. A SPST switch would work, but I had two matching SPDT switches, so I only wired one side of the switch. It's a little hard to see when zoomed in (and behind the wires of the other switch), but the red/orange wires are how I wired the SIO +5V line. Also, StickJock makes a really good point, this doesn't disable the USB/barrel power, so you have to be mindful that you don't supply power through both SIO and external power. Their recommendation of a diode on this line is probably a good idea.
  14. Here are a few pictures. Sorry they are a little blurry, and please forgive any poor solderwork (I'm a novice at soldering).
