I also had some people say that as long as it was originally manufactured by Atari, then it was still an Atari. Accept no substitutes ap...

Re: Mice - Alternatives and recommendations

I know they are expensive ($30+), but the best replacement mouse I've found is

Ain’t she a beauty!

It turned out ok. Another thing was the power switch on the side of CosmosEx. I had to drill a suitab...
