Voice mail -- Jason in Nashville, IL - Reminiscing about cartridge games from TI-99 and retro apps.
Hi Tom and Rafe,
Great podcast this week, as usual! The description of the tech in Tom's house makes me feel giddy (but in a good, tech-porn sort of way :P )!
I ran across this BBC News quiz just now on old computers - 10 questions where you have to identify the computer in the picture. I got a measly 6 out of 10, but considering I was just a wee lad even when the Sega Saturn came out (in fact, I'm as old as the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis PAL version) I don't think its too bad!
Love the show, looking forward to the next episode!
PS. Your episode on passwords helped me get good grade for a presentation I had to do at school, so thanks!
Dear Mr, Needleman,
In the last episode of the Real Deal, you said that you call Dell Inspirons "expirons", based on your experience with them. What makes you say that? I own a Inspiron 1520 and have been quite happy with it, and I have several friends with Inspirons that like theirs as well. Just curious!
