I'm going to think hard on this one guys. I do like to give more than receive and like was mentioned in the Atari day thread on the 26th of the month about engaging people in conversations about Atari and going the extra mile by loaning stuff out, I have done that on my own in the past. I gave away, for keeps, a complete refurbished 5200 and all the top games to a friend who saw it and how much he loved his as a kid and wished he still had it...gave it to him as a moving away present, though I was the one moving away. I did a similar thing with a Flashback 2 unit when the guy told me he remembered his 2600 fondly and he was in bad way financially with nothing to do at home. I love doing that stuff. I am just not sure if I can do it this year as I recently moved and probably won't be fully settled into my new life and home until after the holidays. But I have good stuff on hand, but not sure if I'd end up with the right person to match the stuff. But I may be able to swing a purchase still, I will post yay or nay on the 26th. I LOVE the idea, as well as the junk-box and 26th Atari day stuff!
