OldAtAtari Posted August 5, 2020 Share Posted August 5, 2020 (edited) Hello, everybody. Life-long Atari fan here, starting with the 2600 when I was little, then the 7800 about the time when everybody else I knew got Nintendos and Segas. And ever since middle school, the dream was to own a Lynx. And for my 44th birthday last month, I finally got a Lynx. It's a Lynx II, now with new caps, new power circuit, and the 5V USB mod so I can run it off a portable power bank. And when the BennVenn screen mod is in stock, I plan to do that too. Even without the fancy screen, I'm loving the Lynx. It's a relaxing thing to pick up at the end of the workday. And I also love programming, usually in Perl for work-related things. But now, I want to learn Lynx programming. Free time is hard to find, so this might be a slow process, but I intend to document the process here as I learn it. I'll be asking questions here too, so there should be some responses from experts in this thread. And by the way, I do hope others will post here, both expert and novice, with their comments, corrections, and questions. I want this to be a topic about learning to program, and any contributions towards that are very welcome. And, just to let you know, I tend to bounce from hobby to hobby pretty quickly, so this journal might stop abruptly before much real progress is made. But in the meantime, maybe I'll type at least a couple things that help the next person. Edited August 5, 2020 by OldAtAtari 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
