Recently I was taking a look at the Atari ST software available at AtariMania (reading Breaking the Borders got me in a state of nostalgia) when I stumbled on a new port of the classic arcade game, Pengo, for Atari’s 16-bit computers. It had good reviews and I am a big fan of Pengo and Pengo-style games […]
I just finished reading a book that I am thrilled exists. It would seem unlikely there would be enough interest in a book about what often appears to be a forgotten computer line from the mid-80s to early-90s, the Atari ST. Even more surprising, the book focuses on a niche area of Atari’s 16 and […]
As most everyone who is an Atari Jaguar fan, I am also a lover of Jeff Minter‘s revamp of the classic Atari coin-op, Tempest 2000, considered by many to be the Jaguar’s best video game. Trippy graphics, frantic gameplay, and a sensational soundtrack lead to a game that is a must-have for the Jaguar. Recently, […]
I had never owned an Atari Jaguar Pro Controller when I had my Jaguar in the 90s (bought on clearance from KayBee). Strangely, I did have Atari Jaguar controllers before I had a Jaguar because they worked on my Atari Falcon computer and used it for the handful of games that supported it. I have […]
Fans of the Atari 7800 know that it is great system but that it has a glaring problem. The pack-in controllers, the CX24 ProLine joysticks, are almost universally reviled and have earned a spot among other disasters in input devices like the Apple hockey puck mouse and the Atari 400 membrane keyboard. They have earned […]
I recently posted my lame joke video mashing together The Andy Griffith with Star Wars. In posting it, the excerpt for the post was showing on my site’s homepage and one had to click through to watch the video. There was nothing much to the text of the post – the only thing of note […]
If you’re a Macintosh user, you probably appreciate a clean interface and nice aesthetics. One thing that can cause your Mac’s interface to become cluttered, though, is a myriad of icons in your menu bar. Many programs will allow you to turn off its menu bar icon but not all. Worse yet, you might have […]
I just saw a trailer for Ron Howard’s upcoming movie about Han Solo and… I have a bad feeling about this.
My apologies for the quick and dirty video editing. I didn’t want to spend too much time for a lame joke!
Another Macintosh keyboard shortcut that will be second nature to most Mac users is using ⌥← to move to the beginning of a word and ⌥→ to move to the end of a word. This moves the cursor to the left of the first character or the right of the last character. Try it in Mail. In […]
I have started using JetBrain’s PHPStorm editor at work on a Macintosh and one of the things that has irked me is that some of the standard Macintosh keyboard shortcuts don’t work out of the box. For example, if you’re a seasoned Macintosh user, you are most likely used to using ⌘↑ to go to the […]
