  11. 📰 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

  21. That's cool @Willie! I've always wanted to convert a Dan Kramer 5200 Trak-Ball to a 5200 Arcade Stick, or even use the original 5200 Joystick in there, I think it would be so cool. I never thought about the spinner. This is a cool idea, thank you for sharing.
  22. In "real life" I'm involved in the housing and real estate market. This is a big marker in your life in so many ways. Thinking of you and those in your life @atarilbc and wish you the best. We'll be here keeping the TV warmed up when you're ready to dive back in.
  23. It was great seeing your adventure to Too Many Games! Keep 'em coming Jason! 🙌
