Re: Atari to release throwback console with classic games, joystick

Whole situation reminds me of something, some people do that's a bit iffy, like re-registering old dissolved company names and then trading as them, there's a name in law for it "trading on previous goodwill" some people do it on purpose to make some cash then chuck it away, move on to the next one ...

Re: Atari to release throwback console with classic games, joystick

they are the original Atari That's why I clicked, who actually knows who Atari is anymore anyway? The rights and names must have changed hands a 100 times by now?

Re: Future store updates planned (backend)

Basically because if the jiffy bag went through the 20mm shipping slot.. And that was paid for at the post office, if those switches happen to go one on top of another, it would actually make it larger than 20mm and the shipping cost would actually be incorrect, and the buyer would actually get bil...

Re: Interesting use for a 68000

Remember the EuroFighter had a 68k family chip, turns out its 020, and found this little bit of info too : A number of digital oscilloscopes from the mid-80s to the late-90s used the 68020, including the LeCroy 9300 Series[3] (higher end models including "C" suffix models used the more powerful 68EC...

What I noticed about that was you had a 68K as the main and the Z80 would be doing something else all together. I saw a video the other day and Super Hang On arcade was mentioned and it had 2 x 68ks, al...
