I was pretty turned off on the 2600 scene for a while a few years ago, but all 
I did was mark all my stella-list email read and eventually there came a time 
when I was interested again.

At the moment I'm getting increasingly frustrated that I never have a solid 
weekend available like I need to get a 2600 project from "design notes" to 
"half done", at which point my OCD kicks in and I have a shot at actually 
finishing something ;)  

But I'm also pretty careful to limit my financial exposure in the hobby, which 
isn't too hard since I'm not a collector of physical objects and am the 
opposite of a hardware hacker.  From Chris' missend it sounds like recent 
circumstances have been unkind to him and I think I'd get burned out and stay 
burned out if such a thing were piled on top of my frustration at not having 
time to devote to programming.
