I guess it's time for new glasses when you are viewing your own profile and say "Care Bears! Why the hell would I put Care Bears under interests?!?!?!". You then look again and breath a sigh of relief as you read "Craft Beers". lol

    Hooray for craft beers! Enjoying an Ale Asylum Hoppalicious right now. Tavern League in WI trying to make it tough for small breweries to,do,business. What they want to impose on them is beyond ridiculous. Assholes!

Going to NYC in August and am wondering if there are any classic video games stores worth checking out.

    In NYC? No doubt there are. But as with everything in NYC, I'd expect to overpay. :P

Nephew wanted to play my video games. I knew he wasn't going to be very good at them, but he insisted. I showed him Golf, Ms. Pac-Man and Trick Shot for the 2600. Now he's playing a table top pinball game I have.

    Probably because blonde hair and caucasian skin are very close in overall tonal value. By darkening their roots, it helps to increase contrast and "frame" their face better. Otherwise, to get their facial features to stand out, they would have to put on more makeup (heavier eye shadow, brighter lipstick, etc).

Atari and Mattel partner to promote Mattel brands through Roller Coaster Tycoon Touch. Where was this partnership thirty years ago when IntellAtari would've rocked all our faces?

    As much as I love them, N64 games don't hold up as well IMHO. Though you can guess what would be included, based on Virtual Console thus far.

    You probably can't even buy one unless you pitch a North Face 2 person tent in front of Best Buy a week ahead of time.

I love Mouser. They ship same day if your order is in by 8PM. Mine was just under the wire but didn't ship last night but I see they've upgraded my shipping method.

    One of the few companies that actually has their shit together. Love them too and never had a mixup or bad experience with them all these years either.

    I've always had good experiences with Mouser, too. Their prices are pretty good, and everything always arrives very well-packed.

    No no. No minimodems. And v.92 modems are still a brisk seller.

    That doesn't surprise me. Point-of-sale terminals still make widespread use of analog modems, presumably for secure credit card transactions.

Anyone know how to make a CompactFlash card bootable for a Win98 PC? Trying to use one to replace a dying HD on a laptop

    I've already got an adapter, the problem is that the laptop refuses to boot from the CF card even when formatted using the Win98 boot disk.

    Hmmm ... did you remember to transfer the system files? Here's the procedure that I remember doing with my CF card:
    1) Partition the CF card with FAT32
    2) Boot the Win98 disc with CD support (MSCDEX)
    3) FORMAT C: /S
    4) Copy the CAB files into a folder on C:
    5) Launch SETUP.EXE from the folder to install Win98.

    One that I forgot:
    0) Make sure the laptop is properly detecting the drive in the BIOS. If the laptop has a HD size limitation, you might need to use an overlay manager like Disk Manager.

My Mac Mini crashed the other day and would not restore. I wiped the HD and took it to a local Apple Store. They re-installed El Capitan at no charge. Thank you Apple.

    Strangely the exact same thing happened to my housemate's Mac Mini last month, including Apple fixing it by re-installing the OS free of charge. Apple may be expensive but their customer service is always great! =)

    You wouldn't have to take the damn thing in if Apple would include backup discs in the first place. Oh wait, no more optical drives built into their machines now. I have two such beasts, how could I forget? sigh

    Still, I'd rather they include discs. It's the normal thing to do.
