    Yes, we are mirror universe images of each other. It was just so tempting to TAKE ALL when hardware got so cheap! $35 Kindle Fire! Full HD Nexus 7! Nvidia Shield with fast Tegra! Android TV for big screen fun! ENOUGH ALREADY YOU DORK, I told myself.

I'm not sure I like Cannon Spike. I'm not getting the hang of the controls very well.

Goody! Just tried out my PS2 with one game set to NTSC 60Hz and it works on our big TV. The world is now my oyster. Given the prices of some stuff in the UK it might be cheaper to import.

    Everyone in the United States should be grateful for cheap, plentiful, full-speed games.

    Except the Vectrex. Just seen the prices on Ebay O_O That's one item that's definitely more expensive in the US than over here.

    The grocery store is TOTALLY the best place to find a new partner. Bright lighting, so you know what you're getting. Wire carts show what the person eats and is REALLY like. Sometimes there's music so you can catch somebody boogying, which is important to see while sober. Grocery store hookups happen in the movies all the time, they wouldn't show that if it didn't happen in real life, right? Right?

So I tell the lady at Wal-Mart for the THIRD TIME, "Look... a hamster gun is not a gun you shoot hamsters WITH, it's a gun you shoot hamsters OUT OF. Now - do you have one or not?" So hard to find good help these days...

    (Shatner singlehandedly makes "Airplane II" worth watching, by the way. His "blinking flashing lights breakdown" is truly one of the greatest moments captured on film.)

I love vacation...I hate it when your basement floods while on vacation though. Thank goodness for awesome neighbors and friends who got it cleaned up though. Lost a few cardboard boxes but nothing valuable either thankfully.

    Wow that sucks. Does your basement have a sump pump with battery backup?

    Yup just bought a new pump yesterday going to a 1HP. The other one was just not working as well as it probably should have. Funny i actually have 3 pumps in the pit. The battery one and the main one then a 1/4 HP secondary one which did not turn on for some reason probably a bad switch oh well.

    1987 is pretty late for that game, is that why it's interesting?

Craigslist would have me believe that everyone on earth bought from a selection of 40 2600 games. Did anyone buy the other 525 games at all?

    It would be neat to see a visualization of all the VCS games by their distribution. I'll bet we can guess at the top 40 games. Make a list thread!

Got a little Intel Core m5 Compute Stick to play with, I wonder what it can do...

    It can't use WiFi and BT at the same time, and it's only got one USB slot... so without a hub and a bunch of cables and a PSU brick coming out the back it's pretty useless. Which is why they don't sell very well.

    All those limitations for $500, yuck. Just a proof of concept, or what?

    Not using the Bluetooth so I don't care, but expansion is limited - one MicroSD slot, one Type C for Power, One USB 3.0 on the thing, and then two more USB 3.0s on the power brick which I have powered hubs going off of. It gets a bit hot and file transfer is kinda slow from the NAS to it, but other than that I'm liking it enough.
