Whee! I'm a videogame!

Got my copy of TRONMAN, the videogame. It's actually a customized version of a game called Fast Eddie for the 2600. You can see pictures on the Atari Age forum. The cartridge is a translucent blue plastic, and there's a blue LED inside that glows whenever it's turned on - which I think is a first for an Atari cartridge. (It's the little things that count.)

There's a package waiting for me at the post office, and I think it's a 2600 console modified to bring out audio and video signals to plug into a TV with those inputs. If it is, I'll bring the whole shebang with me to Linucon so folks can look at it.
