Just wanted to take a moment and introduce myself to everyone. I love all things Atari, and I'm very into retro and modern gaming. My consoles range from pre-crash to Xbox One.

I live in the West Michigan area, so if I have some Midwest flavor or tendencies in my posts that's why :-)

Hoping to contribute where I can, and looking forward to learning more from other members about this amazing hobby!

I grew up in the suburbs of Detroit, but a lot of my extended family lived on the Lake Michigan side and a spent many summers in that area.

We should start a separate thread on BSG.  Both here.
