Silica Shop Sunday

I'm not restrained in publicising my affection for all things Atari! This weekend is no exception with the Universal Binary release of Mark Grebe's lauded 8-bit emulator Atari800MacX 3.2.

In the spirit of nostalgia. Silica Shop, based in Sidcup, Kent, was the UK's largest Atari dealer, before its Debenhams concession stores resulted in bankruptcy. How I would endlessly pore over the pages of 16-bit Atari ST hardware in the brochure...

Kevin Simpson, a childhood friend and fellow avid video gamer, and me drooled over this! And to think that I owned a Commodore 64 at the time! In the inimitable words of Lost in Space's Dr Zachary Smith, "Oh, the pain!"
