Recent Meeting Notes
January 2016 - Rob McMullen from the Player/Missile Podcast attended (photos on Facebook page). Bob took a look at Rob's 1200XL that needed some work. Robbie told us about his Alaskan vacation. Bill showed a $40 "Atari Flashback 6" device with 100 games found at Bed Bath and Beyond. Jim won the power strip door prize. More detail and a photo on FB.
December 2015 - New member Howard attended, Kevin won the door prize (a generous gift certificate), several played Bob's Threshold game (on an Atari 800), determined that Bill's Atari 800 needed a keyboard cleaning, assessed Kevin's Atari 130XE (it worked well) and discussed possible future meeting topics.
November 2015 - Bob W. brought an Atari 815 dual-double density floppy drive for everyone to admire. I/O is quite fast. These were released to developers and only a handful produced. Bill, on a 12 to one shot, won a 32 gb USB 3 flash drive.
October 2015 - Kevin attended for the 2nd month, and appears to be a regular. We had a "Big" door prize for a mouse shaped like an Aston Martin. Bob assembled his Atari 1200XL. Robbie connected to the internet with his phone. And.... we created a Facebook page.
September 2015 - Bob won a 32 gb thumb drive in the door prize. A new Atari enthusiast (Kevin) joined us this evening. Took a new selfie minus the photographer. Don S continues to insist that Train-Z is the best thing since, well... you know.
August 2015 - Don won the prize, a 160gb 2 1/2" drive. Somebody forgot to bring the Atari computer but brought the accessories.
June 2015 - The gang assembled and Robbie won the monthly door prize of DVDs and sleeves. Vacations and repaired computers were discussed as well as an internet cable that seemed not to work. An announcement that the meeting might be cancelled, was premature.
May 2015 - Bob brought an Atari with a hard drive attachment. We discussed the 70th anniv of the end of WW2. Jim won the door prize, an external DVD drive. Discussed password managers (Keeppass and Lastpass).
April 2015 - Kind of a quiet meeting. Bob W brought his Atari equip & we socialized.
Feb-Mar 2015 - Met 2 times, one where Bob W brought Atari hardware & software. Most members attended. door prizes continue.
