  1. Great episode! Cant wait for more! Id like some game talk now and then in the future though. No pressure :-P

  2. What an excellent concept. Turn back the clock, so to speak, and experience the lifespan of the Atari ST by using the system and reading the rags. I have been fighting with myself for years over doing the same on that Atari 8-Bit as a way to learn assembler programming and game development. Your voice is a strong one in favor. Fantastic work.
