Hi Tom,

Yeah, I think this could be a Good Thing (tm).  A couple of times before,
people have talked about simple networking of 2 or more 2600s through the
joystick port.  But nothing ever came of it.  I think Jim Nitchals may
have had a private project that he was working on, but as far as I know,
any projects that he was working on passed away with him.


Glenn, do you know what came of this?

As far as internet connectivity, I'm not sure if that has even been
mentioned.  But I think it's a great idea.  And if you want to do it,
I'd be happy to work on it with you.  I can do the hardware interface,
and I could help with the 2600 i/o port code if you want.  If you want to
do this, email me and we'll talk.
