    Do you mean from the lack of a TG update? Or Ben's AtariAge comments?

    I mean he does not mention anything about another episode in the last video description for Dragster. Also how many unrelated episodes has he aired since.

    Got it. Kind of thought that was the context, just wanted to double check. Agreed that Ben's work is very likely done - his last AtariAge comments suggest as much. After having Todd on the show to try his hand at a computer assisted 5.51 and falling short, there really isn't any reason to expect Ben to do yet another test to show the same result. We'll see if our assessment is correct (shortly?)

    Hold up, 1 Million donation for the Atari 2600 and the Cart? Or 1 million so far for the event? What did you mean?

    If Ben doesn't run his machine 3000 times, then it would have been a waste of effort. We need to put this to bed once and for all.

    He means that at the time AGDQ has raised 1 million in donation for the whole event. And to get in for a chance to win the console + cart, you had to make a minimum of $5.57 to get it.

    comment #17

    i dont know why its considered "assumptive" of us to say ben is done with his analysis when he himself has already said he cant get the 5.51 and that he doest see himself doing any more analysis. i guess just wait until 180 from september to find out what the newest change of plans will be
