#1: You start finding creative uses for all those extra Combats and Pac-Man carts. (ex: Skeet-Shoot targets, Doorstops, Coasters)

...when you spend a whole day getting all your doubles together, start putting them online, then go to AA for 3 hours, afterwards handle tons of mails, get all your payments actualised in one list, then back to AA, then trade and discuss by mail for 3 hours, have your payments sent, go back to AA, then bring your daughter to school, come back immediately to see what's in the mailbox (a german atariclub magazine and some stickers), then start your comp again, check and answer another 8 atari-mails, look outside the window and immediately run down and after the parcel delivery because again he's too lazy to come up three stairs, get your parcels (a clock from ABBUC the german atari club, a complete boxed gameline module, paul's test cart & synthcart), then sit in front of your computer again, another hour on AA where you see your newest creation, then you want to start posting your auctions .... you see that there's only 1,5 hours left before you must pick up your daughter from school ...... and you realise you didn't sleep for 30 hours .....

1) You have dreams of Marco and Stan Jr. giving you a drawerful of Lynx games and telling you that you can keep 2 for every 5 you sell... (No kidding. I had this dream last night)

That's pretty funny moycon. If everything on that list was true for you, you should probably go to see a therapist, or join AAA (Atari addicts anonomous)

Ok, here's mine:

 

10) You have a Band-Aid on your thumb more or less all the time due to Atari blisters.

9) You bought a brand new 50 inch HD-TV, and the first thing you hook up to it is an Atari 2600.

8) You have worn out a set of tires on a thrifting expedition.

7) There is an Atari in every room in the house, including the bathroom, where you have waterproofed it to play in the shower.

6) You spend more on Atari carts annually than you spent on your car.

5) You bought a walk-in fireproof safe to store your Atari cart collection in.

4) You have the Atari logo tatooed on your arm.

3) You have not been able to play an entire game of Asteroids (until you die) because the controller always wears out before you die.

2) You make furniture out of Combat carts.

and the #1 sign that you have taken your Atari collection too far:

1) You mortgaged your house to pay off an eBay auction for a cart you "had to have".

Well, I almost had to see a therapist when my Atari Anniversary Edition for the DCast didn't include the Atari Sticker.

 

I kept reading the back of the jewel case. It clearly says, 'Free Atari Sticker'! I keep checking the case daily in case I missed it (I just did it again!).

 

Am I the only one whose life has been in jeapordy because of this tragic situation?

 

as Always,

Markimus of K. (stickerless still!)

I have 2 copies and both came with stickers. They are usually packed inside the manual when you first open it.

 

Best Buy sells the Atari Collection for DC for $9.99. I would suggest that you either buy a new copy (it's only $10), or buy a copy, open the case, take the sticker and return the game (tell them it's defective or you have a PS and incorrectly bought an incompatible game). BB is good at accepting returns...they'll never miss the sticker.

MattyXB mentioned having no money in the bank--I did one better-the bank had to cover a $250 bounced check for an order from Best Electronics;it cost $15 more, but was worth every penny!I had gotten my first homebrew 'Alfreds Challenge' and some boxed red label games.That bounced check was before I started using ebay--I've been hovering above the poverty line since!

Which is the exact reason why i started selling Atari games on eBay. To get money to feed my habit and keep myself above the poverty line! As long as people keep buyin', I'll keep sellin'!

I have an idea for a new Atari slogan...

 

As fun as cocaine, but only slightly less expensive....
