|I have been an avid reader of 2600 magazine for a good 3 years now, and a listener to off the hook. I recently attended my first 2600 meeting. It was a great experience. I was a little disappointed by the latest 2600 issue, yeah they added more pages, Like 4 more, and it got filled with a useless 2600 advertisement and 3 pages of code, which should have just been posted online, It was not worth the increase in price, Actually I for the first time feel ripped off by 2600, Oh well, shit happens. Anyway I'm a computer addict, nice too meet you.|

|Well, it's over a year since you posted your introduction, but I figured i'd say hi anyway. I've been reading 2600 for about 5 years now. I've listened to Off the Hook on shortwave from time to time, but I feel that listening to it online is cheating (yeah, I know..it's stupid and I have no good reason for feeling that way... *shrug*)|
|Been reading it for about 6 years - this forum looks dead, but figured I'd say I love the mag too! Never been to a meet, tried to go once, knew some members from online, not a whole lot exciting going on with the denver2600 group. Let me know if you're still alive, we should chill or something! |
|Werd. Hope was cool. |
"Hey Fat Dave. <--Period"
|I've been reading the magazines for about 2 years, and I actually just bought their 900 page book 2 weeks ago, so far its pretty good. |
|Hate to revive an old thread but it looks like this whole board is dead. I've only read an issue or 2 of the mag but I have lived/loved the culture associated with it for as long as I can remember. I have been trying to get something local going for the past couple years but it seems like everyone in the SW 519/226 has lost interest It's at the point that I'm considering joining some 313/248 clubs. I know that 2600Hz is dead (unless you know the right number in Alaska), but I would think more people in SW Ontario would be into hacking "everyday life". IDK where I'm going with this post but I DO know that if anyone south of London and north of (and including) the Detroit area is still in the 2600 scene, myself and a few friends would love to meet up with you. PM me if you are active in the area. Also, for the Detroiters/Windsorites on this board, I do monitor channels 9,11,18,19 and 30 on CB. Hit me up sometime if you haven't upgraded to Amateur yet. My callsign is Meshif (pronounced "meh-sheef"). |
|Hadn't realized the meetings were still going on. I used to subscribe back closer to the beginning, and 20 or so years ago in the days of BBSs I used to run one of the 2600 ones. |
Anything still going on in the Pittsburgh area?
