12/25/09 Merry Christmas!
Have a happy and safe Christmas and New Year. And also, I'm celebrating the site's 4th birthday on 1/2 (has it been *that* long?!)
I don't have anything to say, I'm just updating to tell you i'm still alive.
12/5/09 2600tris Update
I'm still working on 2600tris. I got optional music plus some other things I changed. Look at it here.
Sorry I haven't been updating the site like I normally should. I have been working on Tetris 2600 and have decided to rename it 2600tris. The link down on 11/12/09 still works to get the latest updates, though.

10/6/09 Kind of a special announcement
GeoCities is closing on October 26, and since nobody really has told me whether Yahoo! Small Business is part of GeoCities, if this website should happen to disappear around then, I will try to resurrect it ASAP with the same URL, if not a different one. If you know the answer, please e-mail me under Contact at the top there.

|9/15/09 New Computer
I haven't been updating my personal 2600 collection because I got a new computer that DIDN'T come with Adobe Acrobat Reader. For those of you keeping score, I now have 292 Atari 2600 games.
I'm still alive, but nothing to show for it.
Will Nicholes has just revealed a very cool project he has been working on for the Atari 2600 called "Duck Attack". Yes, this is for the Atari 2600, one of the best games graphically speaking so far. You can check it out here at the Atari Age thread topic.

2/20/09 JatB Update
I'm almost done, but it will probably be until Summer until it's released, anyway, that's why I'm sticking with Summer 2009 as the release date. It still needs a publisher, though.
2/11/09 Jack & the Beanstalk update
JATB is still being worked on. It's moving along quite nicely, although I am not having much fun working on the kinks and bugs that are associated with bB-game designing. It is such a relief once they finally disappear after trying dozens of things and spending a few hours on it. :) I'm hoping to have this completed by this summer (Q2 2009.)
I don't have any real updates, just checking into the website saying I'm still here.
1/17/09 Jack & the Beanstalk back in production
JATB is being worked on again.

1/3/09 Happy New Year!
Work on Jack & the Beanstalk is progressing nicely.
