About Mark Little

Born in Atlanta sometime in the past. Happily married to my wifey Lizzy for 16 years and living in our cute bungalow (Honeysuckle Cottage) in East Atlanta Village since 2004. We have one cat named Iggy. Interested in computing since 1983 with purchase of my first computer, the TI-99/4a. Moved on from there to an Atari 800XL, then self-built Windows 3.1 machine after that. Computers I currently own: TI-99/4a with PEB, Speech Synthesizer, and Program Recorder; a recently acquired TI-99/4; an Atari 130XE with 1050 Floppy Drive and all of my 1980's-era 8-bit software; a recently acquired Apple 20" iMac G4 with Harman/Cardon Pro Speakers, iSight and AirPort Extreme Base Station; and a 2011 15" Apple MacBook Pro laptop. Know BASIC (both TI and Atari) and HTML backwards and forwards, and am familiar with TI Assembly (TMS9900) language. Took FORTRAN, COBOL, and PASCAL in college. Game systems I currently own: a 4-switch woody Atari VCS (2600) with about 50 game carts (mostly loose); and two Atari Lynx II consoles (one with McWill upgrade), about 60 game carts (most CIB), and all of the various Lynx accessories. Current host of the monthly Atari Lynx HandyCast podcast and the TUBE TUNES TV theme music podcast.
