Thanks for everything, Ted. You will be missed, but certainly not forgotten.

One of the trailblazing pioneers, to be sure. Atari was my first exposure.

Never owned an Atari but I recognize as a great chapter in gaming history.

My first home console was a 2600. Played on a black and white zenith. Good times.
