    R.I.P. Fry's Electronics. 
    Fry's closed all locations on Wednesday with no forewarning. It was one of the last places I could still buy electronics components in-person. Need a 7805 regulator for that ailing 2600? How about a few resistors for that AV mod? Replacements for a leaky cap? They had me covered without the wait of an online order. 
    It was a quirky, hodgepodge type store with a lot of "As seen on TV" products along side computer, electronics and stereo equipment. It shall be missed.

    Hello, I/O!
    I wanted to provide a quick personal update. I suffered a big heart attack and had open heart surgery on Wednesday last week. I was discharged and returned home yesterday. I’ve missed the I/O community. I hope everyone is well. I am on the road to recovery and doing as well as can be. Life is good. God is good all the time.
    The doctor said I should expect 70% recovery by two months time, so it’ll still be a while before I can actively join the fun here, I suspect. I’m hoping that I’ll be feeling well enough to pop in from time to time to check up on this wonderful community. I bought a Turbo Express a while back in anticipation of the scoring challenge but oh well 😭
    Live life! Stay strong and safe! ❤️🕹

    I'm planning a retro gaming "battle jacket" in a punk/metal style.  I'm currently agonizing over the image to use for the back patch which is the centerpiece of any battle jacket.  I've narrowed it down to Joust, Missile Command and RoadBlasters...

    I've been pretty quiet in the I/O lately because I came down with COVID-19. My wife came down with symptoms over a week ago (got tested and confirmed) and a couple of days later, I started experiencing symptoms. A few days after me, my elder son became symptomatic and a couple of days later, the younger son became symptomatic.
    It's a day to day thing -- some days are worse than others. Hopefully, things will be much better for me after this week. My wife was feeling very good today, so hopefully, she's on the mends. Lots of body aches and low grade fever.
    Gaming wise, I haven't been able to play much if at all. However, I've watched a lot of Star Trek while resting.

    Playing Sonic CD for the first time. Quite a trippy game. Really fun though. (Edit: Just beat it. Unfortunately didn't manage to get the good ending. Stardust Speedway is confusing, and Metallic Madness is a pain. Also, the race against Metal Sonic is very unforgiving. But a very fun game regardless. Surprised it took me so long to play it.)

    🧠 PRO-TIP: Presales aren't allowed on Atari I/O. Even with the best intentions, sincere promises of "ready to ship in six months" many times become tumultuous as months turn into years or even a decade without fulfillment. Please wait until your product is ready to ship before soliciting sales in our Marketplace.

    I guess it's confession time.
    I've never told anyone about this before because I felt a little embarrassed about it, but ever since Algebra class last year, I've had a crush on this girl who was at the same table as I. We used to laugh and fool around and have all the fun. I have no idea how I even passed that class. We messed around the entire period every single day.
    I've never quite felt this way before, and I've kept it completely to myself for the last year. This was one of the tougher parts of the pandemic for me, as silly as that sounds. We've kept in touch the whole time, though it really isn't the same. I was always scared of asking her out at the time because I was scared of rejection, though I was pretty sure she liked me back. I think that it's damn time I do something about it all, virus permitting. Even if I do get friendzoned or something, I would have at least put myself out there. Nothing will come of sitting here wishing for things.
    I figure just talking about it would probably help me feel better about it. Like I said, I haven't said a word to anybody about this. Talking about it to another person will probably help me feel a bit more confident about it all. Sorry for the excessive blabbering about high school garbage like this.

    Rikki & Vikki is now sold out on the 7800 but its still available on Steam.  Currently its on sale for just $1.99.  If you were ever curious now is the time; you can't beat that price!  I can't recommend the game enough.

    Ho ho ho 🎅🎄  We got our first snow ❄️ of the season! It looks like a few inches piled up in just a few short hours. And on that appropriate note, a local gamer with the permission of the creator put together a Genesis cartridge of the homebrew Mega Xmas '89. My cartridge arrived today.
    I think I have more homebrews and repros for my Genesis than official cartridges 😜 k-u-r-a-z-y
    The rom is available for free download from the creator's site. It works in all regions.
