I have finally caught up on the podcast and figured it was time to join the forum. Gotta enjoy the surprises of each new episode. I have been into Atari since the mid 80's when we got a 4 switch Vader for christmas. I still have that system and all the games tucked away. I started collecting the other era systems in the late 90's when it was all I could afford. I stopped collecting for about 15 years, leaving what I had boxed up till a friend of mine asked me if I could fix a Nintendo NES for him. From there I started a retro game repair company as a prt time job to offset my collecting. Through 2 dudes and a nes, learned of the pod father and after a couple episodes, I was hooked. I expanded my business to include Atari as way to help my collection and a reason to play the different games I have heard on the podcast. Through the podcast I have learned so much and I am glad to find others with the same interests.
