Been looking at some excellent home brew home computer conversions of classic arcade, console games.

Came across this eye catching version of Sega's classic Space Harrier on the Atari 8-bit line. Perhaps worth Critics time getting it running on his XEGS.

Just an amusing video on 'Old Computers did it Better'. For instance, how to you exit an application? Turn off power, turn on power, system back on...just that quick.

Seriously though, the old manuals were pretty awesome. A recent computer I bought came with a quick install guide and some warranty information, and I think that was it.
