Remember these bumper-stickers?
All this made me think of the old 2600: The Hacker Quarterly. It was always exciting getting these in the mail back when I was still in high school! I haven’t held an issue in my hands since, and I was a little surprised to see they are still around. I had a stroll down memory lane looking through all the 2600 magazine covers.
