Boxing (Activision, Atari VCS, 1980)

We've seen a Boxing game once before! 1978 on the APF-1000MP. I'd actually recorded that play session on a VHS tape which now will not load anything because my VCR won't work. Well, the mechanical bits won't work. The electronic bits still work as a conduit to serve my old consoles. All hail the conduit!

Oooh, boy......

Alien Crush

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 29 August 2014 · 77 views

I finally found a Turbo-Grafx game I like. It's Alien Crush. I got this in the mail today and really enjoyed my first time playing it. It's my favorite TG-16 game so far. I got Alien Crush because Devil's Crush was way more expensive. I guess since it's a better game, but I am happy and fine with Alien Crush. I like pinball games, so it's a good fit for m...

Radio AM stations

The last time I listened to radio AM band in my region, they were only two AM stations left.
 
Today, all AM stations are gone.
 
 
PS: I rarely listen to radio anyway.

My Experience Making an Original Xbox Eeprom Reader

Posted by frankodragon in Frankodragon's Blog Stuffs, 26 August 2014 · 87 views

There are many tutorials describing on how to make an eeprom reader for the original Xbox console and then there are readers you can buy.  So thinking after all the projects I've fried over the years, maybe it was better to buy one.  Problem is I could get one overseas and pay $20+ for one and maybe use it a few times.   So I went ahea...

Two more potential next gen gamers have come into this world.

Posted by Dragon Princess Yushira in DPYushira's Entertainment Blog, 25 August 2014 · 77 views

Earlier today, my middle older sister Renea just gave birth to two twin daughters. Brings the next gen total to five for my immediate family's generation (2 boys and 3 girls). Their names are Bridgette and Felicia which are mom and aunt Pan's middle names respectively. The future of gamers is started to look good assuming they become gamers but no one wil...

Six Pack - Atari 2600

Posted by Marc Oberhäuser in Marc Oberhäuser's Blog, 23 August 2014 · 114 views

Here's my take on 20th Centrury Fox' Six Pack (http://www.atariprot...n3/unknown3.htm ). The label art is from the DVD release, promotional flyer/catalogs featured only the name "Six Pack", no boxart, no screenshots.

It's full of stars!

Just Had a Dream About Future 3D Printers

3D Printer Dream
 
I was looking through the eyes of a reporter on a big set where different experts sat next to the items that they were going to talk about. For example, the expert talking about food was sitting next to a small area that was set up to look like part of a produce aisle (fresh fruits and vegetables aisle) at a grocery store. It was...

TILES212.APP - old game updated for Diamond GOS

Posted by Pack007 in Diamond in the Rough, 17 August 2014 · 115 views

I was waiting for the Diamond GOS APP store to open before I posted this game. I finally figured it wasn't going to happen - soon. So here is the Tiles game that will give you something to play while we wait.



As you can see, I got out the old Zenith Data System monitor and removed the Windows NT computer from my desk. I like the color green. It may ha...

Coursera vs UMN

Posted by scrottie in scrottie's Blog, 12 August 2014 · 89 views

Coursera is free, or $50 a course if you want a "verified certificate", where they make an attempt to verify your identity and that you are there while the tests are taken.  Courses are across broad topic ranges and include some solidly advanced, nerdy stuff.  There's no admissions process and it isn't accredited.  Assistance is from peers,...

Posted by PacManPlus in PacManPlus' Blog, 12 August 2014 · 154 views

Back in 2011, 8 months after I moved to Florida from Long Island, my best friend of 33 years (at the time) was diagnosed with throat cancer. He did smoke, but was not a heavy smoker (like someone who would go through packs a day).
This cancer eventually spread to his lungs, and he tried many different (even experimental) procedures to shove the cance...

I kinda like soldering

Posted by mos6507 in mos6507's Blog, 09 August 2014 · 112 views

I live in pretty cramped conditions, and I don't really like soldering with my daughter around.  Right now I'm soldering on a table in her room, so when she comes back in September I really will have no good place to do it separate from her room.  But I am getting kind of a mini-nostalgia thing going doing the AtariVox+ soldering.  I feel a...

Road Not Taken

Posted by EricBall in EricBall's Tech Projects, 06 August 2014 · 127 views

A couple of years ago my wife and I played an MMO called Glitch.  IMHO Glitch was doomed from the start because it only charged real money for vanity items and it wasn't social enough or fun enough to play indefinitely.  However, the stylized artwork was was very well done and one of the more enjoyable parts of the game.
