Hello,  

More than 20 years ago, when I was a kid, my uncle built his first tv-pong game. I was amazed. Couple of years later, my parents bought me an ATARI 2600 VCS. Couple of  years later I got my Sinclair Spectrum 48K computer.   
Recently, I decided to get back to these days by collecting these games, computers and more. This web site is dedicated to my collection and the things I still admire today as an EE.   
I do admire these talented guys that with so little resources made so much. Just think about these games that required no more than 16K of memory...   
It's hard to explain how much joy and satisfaction I have after fixing one of these old  systems and bring them back to life...   
Id like to thank my wife Ravit who helps me putting together my collection by stopping at garage-sales and flea-markets and tons of thanks to my parents, Dalia and Shaul, that  exposed me to all of these games back then when I was a kid.   
Please feel free to e-mail me with any question, comment or remark you have regarding my collection.

When I started my collection (the summer of 1999), I looked for a simple to use utility to keep track of the growing collection. I always like to know the details (such as when, how much did I pay, where, from who etc.) regarding any item I own. Therefore, I developed my own database manager for that purpose. It runs on M.S. Access97 (Sorry MAC users...). The "Collector's Database" is incomplete and definitely can be improved - but for me it is more than enough... You are welcome to download it for your personal use only (unless you contact me first). This is my humble contribution to the collectors community and any feedback is welcome. Enjoy!

I'd like to thank my friend, Marc Delvaux, for letting me have his camera for taking many of the pictures you'll see in my site.
