Managed to accomplish a few things for the game archive over the past couple of days:

  • Got the budget approved, so I can start spending money on games, equipment, etc.
  • Delivered the first batch of games (from those donated) to cataloging, so that process can get started.
  • Got a dongle from Radio Shack so that we can hook up the old game systems to a modern television. Hooked up the Atari 2600 Jr. and had one of our grad students test the donated games to make sure they worked (most did).
  • Ordered chairs for the game room.

Now that the budget is in place, things should start happening at a faster pace. We're still on target for opening sometime in August (though at this point it's looking to be more like late August...)
