My computer room is a perpetual mess these days. It feels like everything I do to organize that room results in adding one more box full of stuff to the dwindling available floorspace. Well, as of last night... that is actually still the case, but...

I did take time to set up the Atari 2600 once again. Good times... It's connected to Karen's old "pre-Lee" 13-inch TV through a VCR (in case I need to submit a score to Twin Galaxies, ya' know!). All the cabling, including the Supercharger audio cable that I use for Atari development, is nicely tucked out of view. It's a good setup, quite conducive to casual 8-bit, bleepy mayhem.

There was ample testing involved, naturally. I kicked some butt (virtual butt, as I was playing alone) on Donkey Kong, Ms. Pac-Man, Yars' Revenge, and my game, Reflex. I also got pretty far on Thomas Jentzsch's incredible homebrew title Thrust+. I feel an Atari homebrew renaissance coming on...
