    Default Whaaaaaaaat, got my Atari working :D



    Bought an Atari 2600 the other day for $8. I had a whole bag full of games I got for $3 at a yard sale, so I've been on the lookout for a 2600. The cable was messed up so I had to splice in a new one and I had a cool bro on another forum send me the adapter I needed pro-bono (I think that means free, and I always want to use that phrase.)

    Anyway, slow day and I just got it working 100% so I'm pretty pumped. Splicing RCA cables is a biiiiiiitch to do.

    Maybe in the city, but I really hate driving and all my friends are hobos or hippies and don't have reliable vehicles :C It looks awesome though.

    @sonic you just gotta look homie. I go every Friday morning, just look in your local classifieds. Don't get discouraged, keep on and youll find em.
