For those of us that remember the Arari 2600 games check this out. http://www.guru3d.com/news-story/atari-2600-is-returning-as-a-handheld-console.html... I remember back when my stepson was 8 or so, we got it for him for Christmas and later had to buy him his own TV so that we could watch TV ourselves.


I don't buy computers, I build them!!

Ehehe....I started with computers on the Atari 400 and 800. Wrote little games and my own desktop-publishing program in Basic. Oh my, that was a long time ago... ;-)
