    Seems like a good time to take a minute to learn about Jerry Lawson. Who was he? He had become the Chief Hardware Engineer, and director of engineering and marketing at Fairchild Semiconductor's video game division - a division that didn't exist until he started building. And he did something ...

    Added a new thing to my game collection today.

    Now I have a few games that I need to go hunt down, the ones that are actually worth playing. :)(OK, Iron Soldier is good, and I hear Super Burnout is also worth playing, seems good from the quick test)

    I've got my power switch cleaned and replaced on my Colecovision, and that's working solidly now. So I've started to move on to cleaning the controllers, as they're pretty flaky, and seeing if that solves the lack of action buttons working. Opened up the first one, and this is what greeted ...
