Time Warp

[ #5325 ]
Dear Log,

Western Europe as time-warp? Sure, why not. Personally, I have the feeling that New Mexico, where I live, is solidly stuck in 1983. It's not so bad. Cable TV is catching on!

      • Oh, yes. I missed the initial slashdot report that caused this site's hit count to skyrocket, but I've been following the VCSP for almost a year now. Someday, I'd like to build one, though I will NEVER tear up my Atari; I'd have to get another one. Another idea I've had is using Stella, the cross platform Atari emulator (now GPL'd according to sourceforge) on some embedded system driving a little TV like BenH describes; with this method you could have every Atari game available on your handheld.
