For anyone who has ever been curious as to the meaning of the lyrics in Snow's song Informer, “A licky boom-boom down” can mean “I’ll beat you down” or “I’ll gun you down” depending on how you interpret the Jamaican Patois. In Patois “lick” means to beat, or to shoot.

Fixed an 800 with hum bars moving down the screen. Turned out to be a bad rectifier diode on the PS board. Thing is, it tests good when removed but gets hot in service.

    Good job on figuring that out! I had a lawn mower that would start but always heat up midway through and I took it back to Sears 11 times and their repair shop Never fixed it right.

    Parts behave differently under load than in a lab environment.

Is it possible to embed a Flickr photo gallery into a post on Atari Age forums?

    Embedded photo sharing services are low-performance.

Please stop posting Vs threads that have already been beaten to the ground. I think we've have enough drama already.

Wow, Zima did NOT live up to my memories. Tastes like slightly sweet rubbing alcohol.

    Yeah.. insane vertical but hardly any left/right movement. I think there's a Game Genie code that lets you jump super-high that makes it a bit more tolerable.

My daughter helped me organize the giant listing of 2600 games I'll be making soon, and by help I mean knocking over stacks of games, and tossing them out of boxes. It was great, she kept clapping after everything she did too.

Finally got around to installing the Vampire accelerator in my A2000. Worked straight away and wow - the speed!

    anyone happen to know if you can use Vampire in an A500 AND an ACA500 to use its removable CF card capability? Or is there contention with its accelerator, since it's off the expansion port. Tempted to try, but don't want to blow anything up!

    I just checked out the website and despite their promise, saw none of my favorite arcade heroes. In fact, most of what I saw were console heroes. I'd be down for a Q-Bert or Mr. Do if they ever made one though.
