Yesterday I saw on the blog of Jason Scott, (creator of “BBS: The Documentary,” a topic near to my heart, having been a sysop and having had a FidoNet address back in the early 90s) a link to another interesting blog.

Called DadHacker, it covers a wide variety of topics being, well, a blog.

And while the randomness of people’s writing whims do not always lead to a good read, this site is worth a peek.

I even found an entry on MMORPGs.

But the gems in this blog are the entries about the authors days at Atari. Posts like, “Donkey Kong and Me,” “Super Pac-Man,” and “The Atari ST” (part 1 and part 2).

If you like this sort of computer ancient history, go take a look.

    Possibly all the delivered ones have been sold, and that is it.

    I’ve come across this sort of thing before with Nintendo games; popular games sold out, and unavailable unless you buy it on import(PlayAsia or similar).

    I don’t have a DS, so I have no idea about whether region locking is in force or not.
    Certainly on the Cube I could use Freeloader to get around it, but with a cart it might be impossible.


Voice your opinion... but be nice about it...
