    Just so you guys don't think I'm dead (because of no posts lately) -- although I'm sure @MaximumRD would respectfully report on it if I was, there's a new project I've been working on. Restoration of a 2003 Subaru. It's got a water leak (which makes it smell bad), and needs some engine work. But I'm having FUN with it. My father was an auto mechanic. It feels good to get the hands dirty. AND...I got a NEW JOB! I start next week. Should be lower stress. I hope.

    πŸ“° Google paid $58.1 million for the Atari building at 1272 Borregas Ave. This building was home to 2600 games development and all the zany things that went on there. The Mercury News has a nice article on this which quotes Atari I/O: https://www.mercurynews.com/2019/07/01/google-grabs-an-early-atari-building-in-north-sunnyvale-deals-widen/amp/?__twitter_impression=true

    My son gave me a gift of NES "Top Gun" yesterday. My goal is to land the plane on the carrier. I failed a few times, but now I've read the manual. I won't let you down this time, Goose.

    T.G.I.F.! Here's a new favorite of mine. White Water! for Intellivision from 1983 by Imagic. It's also compatible with my Sears Super Video Arcade. This game has two different modes. In the first mode you shoot the rapids and race to the finish line without losing your men. It's sort of like bumper boats. In the second mode you steer towards a white sandy shore then run into the forest where you play the riches ritual against one of the natives. You take turns capturing flags, after the final flag is caught you each race for a golden urn. After picking up three urns you have a chance at a valuable treasure chest. But you must play by the rules and alternate capturing flags or the Big Kahuna will become angry and throw tomahawks at you. I'll record some gameplay over the weekend so you can see more of this awesome game. 🏞️

    I've finally thought of another topic worthy of a blog post. Not gaming or nostalgia related this time, but hopefully interesting nonetheless. Now I just need to write it. πŸ™„

    I've been doing 6502 programming on the Atari 8-bit computers since Mac/65 on the 80s. Today its Eclipse/WUDSN/Mads and emulators on linux. In the later 80s and 90s I was doing computer animation, desktop publishing, and video production on Amigas. Some programming, too, but by then I was working full time, so recreational programming was cut down quite a bit. I have a full time job managing a group of programmers working on financial processing systems written in C and running on linux. Chances are if you've used a gift card I've made it a happy experience for you. (If it wasn't I can refer you to some competitors ) When I have time I work on random graphics project and games, or port things from other platforms to the Atari 8-bit computers. Various tutorials from Oldskoolcoder and GRay Defender have been my past porting victims. https://github.com/kenjennings https://www.youtube.com/user/SyntheToonz (No, I've never been on Jeopardy!)

    Oh guys, I'm feeling so overwhelmed at work lately. Please forgive me for venting, but it's gotten so difficult. Do more with less. I just feel so bad that I can't seem to keep up.

    πŸ‘‹ Update: Summer is wrapping up and we're headed into the Fall season! I hope everybody enjoyed our Summer Events this year, including the Pole Position II Grand Prix, Howard Scott Warshaw Day, and Pizza Party Weekend! We'll have some fun stuff coming up for the Fall and Winter too. I've been very busy w/ professional life and haven't been posting much.

    MGL Update: I'm hanging in there given that Game #3 is Bubbles - A game I never played in arcades. I find the game very frustrating. Anyway, here's a fun :07 game play clip of Mr. Do! This is titled "I CALLED BANK"

    OMG you guys! I just got something spectacular. A really old 12" Sony TV. From the 1970's. It's got a wood case! It needs to be cleaned up. But boy-o...is there any better way to play Atari than a really old Trinitron? I'M PUMPED!

    Hey guys, if anybody here gets METV, tonight at 10 EST, 9 CST there's an episode of a show called "Collector's Call" in which a video game collector shows off his massive collection, which includes such rarities as a Sega Neptune prototype. Figured you guys would be interested.

    This week, I'm buying a new roof for our home. Can we all admit that being an adult sucks sometimes? There's very little time or $$ for gaming.

    After learning that the Retro World Series added another event in Minneapolis for April 7, I reached out in hopes of landing an interview for Episode 7 which will air next Wednesday, March 27. I was unable to schedule an interview for my pilot episode, but with two events in April (the other set for Las Vegas on April 26-28), my hope is to secure an interview by no later than Monday so I could edit the segment in time for Wednesday.

    You know it saddens me that SEGA has never matched the quality / quantity / fun that they generated back in the 8-16 bit era. 😐
