    When I left you, I was but the learner. Now, I am the master...of Public Administration. :). Final paper in last night! After nearly 2.5 years of full time work and school I am done with my MPA program. I'm very excited to be getting some free time back. I have no idea what I'll do with it but there will definitely be some space for Atari!

    I just bought 2 more Intellivisions. Hopefully I will finally find a working Intellivision with a decent picture that doesn't have any problems.
