These guys are great! Not only did they provide great PCB services,
they also donated the majority of the PCBs for the project, directly
supporting the Bridge Point Elementary children.
Without Silicon Hills (here in Austin) these boards would
have never made it into the hands of the kids. Silicon Hills
(and Rick) donated the assembly services to get the boards
put together. On behalf of the Bridge Point kids, THANKS!
Many of you may have felt that tingle of recognition when you
saw the drawings on the manuals of the RetroRover and Retris
games. You have seen those drawings before! Although
the Retris drawing was modified just a bit, these drawings were
lovingly lifted from:

Clicking on the picture will bring you to the
BASIC Computer Games pages at the Atari Archives at
The Retris drawing is from the game "Bounce" (page 25) and the
RetroRover drawing is from the game "Combat" (pages 50-51).
These credits wouldn't be complete without mentioning
the best CAD software on the planet - the EAGLE Layout Editor.
Running on both Linux and Windows, this program made it possible
to design and build the PCB.
And last, but not least, BG Micro is the source for most
of the parts for the games. And they gave me a special
price break on many of the components. Gotta' like that!
