I should have started here first but went ahead posting elsewhere.
I have been around different Atari forums since '97 - Jaguar Interactive II, Jaguar Sector II, AtariAge, groups on Facebook. Never been banned from anywhere. I just want to talk about the systems and the games - no real penchant or time for personal dramas Names were generally under Shaggy or some variation on that. I haven't really been active on an Atari forum since JS2 closed...I do some occasional posts on AA or a Facebook group here and there.
I own the Atari 2600, 5200, 7800, 800XL, XEGS, ST, Lynx, Jaguar and presently 9 Atari arcade games (one of which is their pinball machine Space Riders).
Long, long ago when Geocities was a thing I ran a site called "Kingdom Atari". That all seems to have been lost but it was fun for learning HTML and such things. I also ran a site called Castle NUON for a couple of years to discuss and report on that hardware, which felt a lot like the Jaguar 2 that we never got.
Currently I operate a site called Arcade Heroes where my focus is on real arcades and the current market surrounding those. Been doing that for 10 years and it is a lot of fun.
Professionally I own and operate a business in Utah called the Game Grid Arcade which will turn 9 this year. I also do website design and writing for an arcade distribution business and have done writing for a pinball mod company at the end of last year. I sold arcade games for five years while at a major online distributor but I quit that job last year to move onto brighter, greener pastures.
I look forward to hanging out!
