Posted by cessnaace, 21 April 2019 · 52 views
You Can Decide The Fate Of My Youtube Channel I went AWOL on my Youtube account https://www.youtube....user/cessnaace/  several years ago due to illness, injury, and a dead computer. While I was AWOL my account stayed constant at an average of 1,828 subscribers. Since my return not only have I not gained any new subscribers, I've lost a handful of the ones that I already had. This probably...

Home Brew Desires #1 OK, another series within' my Blog here. So sue me (no, don't do that).

Atari PAL Log #1 Or, Atari PAL Log: My Experiences Playing PAL Games On My NTSC Atari #1  Kind of a long title for an on-going series, so I shortened it a tad bit.
