Our First Video Game Consoles

Our first video game console was a Sears Roebuck/Atari Tele-Games Pong. You could play tennis (two player ping-pong) and squash (single player racquetball).

Atari Pong was only available at Sears Roebuck Department Stores for Christmas ’75. The versions that were later sold in other stores didn’t say, “Tele-Games” on them, because that was a Sears Roebuck trademark.

Our Second Video Game console was the Tele-Games Video Arcade. It was an Atari 2600 that Sears sold.

As I get better at Photoshop, I always go back to the You Suck at Photoshop series, to get a better perspective on how I have improved.

How do you know that you are coding too much?

Fixing bugs uses more time than not making them. If you avoid taking breaks, because there is not enough time, then at some point you will end up with more work than you completed.

Here’s Utkarsh Simha‘s humorous answer to the question:

When you go to a shop and ask for 1 kilo of rice and then accuse the shopkeeper of shortchanging you by 24 grams.
