We recorded our Pitfall/Pitfall II Episode last night. It was so long since we last got together we went off on so many tangents. Lots of blooper material.

Now I got to edit this into a intelligible episode.

I also, have to do some filming this afternoon, for the 1-Year Anniversary Special Edition of The Atari Report, in which will go to air tomorrow, in which will mark to the very day, the 1-year anniversary of TAR, and yes I might no doubt have to do some retakes just to make sure I get it right, but yes it will air sometime tomorrow afternoon on that particular YouTube channel (or search "The Atari Report" on YouTube). I'm already cleaned up and groomed so I can be camera-ready, now it's a mater of setting up the lights and cameras for the filming in will commence later on today. There'll even be an overlook at what goes into the filming of each episode you see as well as many ither things you might not know inclduing what my real day job is and also what inspired me to come up with this series/channel, see you then!!! :)

I also own one too, I just don't have the Y-adapter for it though. As for the keypad, it is an absolute must as its touch-tone phone-quality keypad is the best you would've found in its day. Good luck. Best to you.

I didn't know there was a keypad from Wico for the 5200.  I have the joystick with the Y-cable.  I'll have to see if I can find one of those keypads.

How?  Where?  I've been trying to find one!

It was an eBay auction for parts.  I took a chance on the keypad, knowing that their built like tanks and not much can go wrong with them.  The keypad is like new.  The controller was in bad shape, but now I have some spare parts for my working one.

Hmm, I may have to change my saved search then.  It hasn't found any of those for me.  Thanks!
