Other Tidbits/Comments

Since I got my Atari 400 as a kid, I've been playing different systems. I had the 400, and my friends had Atari 2600, Colecovision, etc... When I was 13, I got my NES, and then later a SNES. My most recent interest is Gameboy Color. It's only within the last couple of years that I realized that I could still find games for my old Atari 400, so I have resumed the hunt for cartridges for that system - that is my main collecting interest..
