• Telnetting via FujiNet

  • 2021 · 2021-06-14 · Daniel
  • The FujiNet is a very cool peripheral available for 8-bit Atari systems.

    Somewhere along the way, I learned of the ability to telnet over the FujiNet.

    The requirements are simple:

    • A FujiNet device
    • A terminal program
    • Something to telnet into

    For the first requirement, I have a FujiNet device.

  • RetroTINK & s-video

  • My Atari 800 is modified with UAV (on the SCCC board) and Incognito. Today I decided to connect my 800 to my 43" Vizio TV (the TV I use with my 2600/5200) to see just how much difference S-video makes.

    In a word: WOW!

    The lines are much crisper …Continue reading

  • The Atari 2600 and 5200 game systems are my all-time favorites -- the 2600 because the games are so simple, and it is simply amazing what developers have done with the meager resources available on that system. The 5200 because those are the games I remember. To me, the 5200 versions …Continue reading

  • Starting my journey

  • 2021 · 2021-04-01 · Daniel
  • My journey started 10-15 years ago, when I bought an XEGS from an eBay seller. I have used that XEGS as a cartridge console gamine system, with classic favorites such as Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Defender, Joust, and of course Missile Command. Until recently, this was my only Atari system.

    I …Continue reading
