I'm all for kludges

Post by kludge » Sun Dec 30, 2018 11:58 pm

Hi all, and greetings from Sweden!

I hate to break it to you, but I'm really more of a Commodore kind of guy, but with all the switcharoos and buyouts and doodads who's to say what's what anyhow? As long as it's retro I'm in.

I consider myself more of a problem solver than a programmer or an electrical engineer, hence my username. :)

Followed terriblefire here, and I have to say I think this seems like an excellent place to be!
A kludge or kluge is a workaround or quick-and-dirty solution that is clumsy, inelegant, inefficient, difficult to extend and hard to maintain.

Thanks, you all!

Come to think of it, I have a bunch of 70's Pong clones. That's _almost_ Atari, right? ;)

Will I be upgraded to regular user sometime after posting here, or should I comment somewhere else?
