Sure, but.....

My Atari displays colors very differently depending on the supply
voltage.  Namely, I couldn't figure out why FotR looked different on the
emulator and on the iron, and then I tried bumping up the voltage 1.5V
(my Atari power supply is long dead, so I'm using one of those Wal-Mart
adjustable-from-3-to-12-volts thingies).  So we need to get someone with
a known stable, accurate power supply to do it.
