    Default Hey all

    Hey everyone,
    My name is Aaron Hickman and I'm a listener from San Antonio Texas. I've been listening to the show since 2011. Just recently became active on Facebook, the forums, and the last live chat. I love the show, and retro gaming in general! My first computer was an apple IIe clone. First console was an NES followed by an Atari 2600. I used to be a huge collector of various video game systems, but I sold most of it after I got married and had kids to pay bills. Once we buy a house I plan on having a space devoted just to retro games. Arcade cabs, pins, consoles, computers, whatever.

    Also, I'm a musician and write music for guitar, piano, and chiptune. You can check out my soundcloud here where I go by the name Never Enough Neckbeard:

    Anyways, I'm here for the long haul!

    Great to have you, I think you will find allot of like minded people in our forums. What clone did you have for the Apple II, I had a Franklin Ace and loved it.

    Hello and welcome.
    I do believe that we have also befriended each other on PSN as well.
    Would have been around longer for the last live news, but something messed up and I wasn't able to get back to it.

    Thanks guys.

    Scott: It turns out I had an Apple IIc according to an older brother. We had that machine from the time I was 4-9 so some of the details are fuzzy. I recall having Tetris, Batman, Card Sharks, Matterhorn Screamer, Captain Goodnight, Mystery House, a text bases math game in a dungeon? And some resource management game set in a kingdom where you had to keep out rats and feed serfs and control how much grain was produced. Don't rememeber much else. I do recall it looking sonething like this: AppleIIc-2.jpg

    Hey Burgertime! We have. I had to miss part of the live news too. I had to drive home from work. Turns out because of some recent changes, I'll be working from home from now, which is great! So I should be able to catch more live news.

    I recall a math tutorial program set in a dungeon as well, you had to type in algebra answers as part of the spells or fighting, can't recall.

    So I hit youtube and found it.

    Wow that games looks very familiar Scott! Especially the look of the backgrounds.

    Thanks Socal!

    After talking to my dad yesterday it sounds like we had a Franklin ACE clone.

    Funny how your brain remembers more games. I totally remember having Dogfight now. It was pretty much like Space War! but with planes constantly circling instead of thrust:
