    For the life of me I don't understand why ebay lets sellers with ZERO Feedback sell anything! Even if they made a Seller Buy 5 items first and then sell, let's say 3 items for less than $10 (or something, Anything), just to verify a bank account, They could discourage 95% of scammers, who would move onto easier prey elsewhere.

    I think the kicker there is that it ended because they "sold" them all..I had a mind to report it, but they don't really have an option for "gut feeling" or "something doesn't add up"...They make it easy for scammers to sell, but hard to report, and for all I know it's legit, but I doubt it...

Having a cold sucks enough, but hacking up crud hard enough to make your throat sore REALLY sucks.

    That throat spray stuff Chloraseptic is a real lifesaver for an icky throat. Target has a generic version for 2 bucks or CVS/Rite Aid/Walgreen's has their generic versions too.

    I'm more worried about some kind of infection heading toward my lungs (possible pneumonia) or something as I've been fighting this one a while, but it looks like there's stuff going around...I just want Everyone to feel better.

    It's nice when The Universe is on your side on occasion...I remember getting a broken Sharp Twin Famicom from Japan...He sent me a working unit (both red) and let me keep the old one.

The nickname "PAM" for an Atari chip is a sign of its times. http://www.babynamewizard.com/voyager#prefix=pam&sw=both&exact=false

I've cleaned a lot of Atari and Intellivision carts over the years, but they don't begin to approach the level of filth Famicom carts always have. Yuck.

    I think a lot of NES carts were used as makeshift dust pans for slobs to clean up their coffee tables.

    Worst I ever came across was a dead cockroach shell and a mummified spider nest in the same cart.

    I actually had Worse luck with a few Atari carts...Grimy mud on a couple (No idea LOL), But some of those brightly colored Famicom carts show the dirt in obvious ways...

    TBH, I'd start with a rough outline and then drop my "voice" into one of the characters and see where it goes...

    Also "You" control the tone of a movie, but the characters should have their own voices...

Why do sellers on ebay think vintage mice that only move side to side but not up and down work great?

    They put "great shape!" in the title but down below list all the faults with a piece of hardware -- doesn't turn on, etc.. But at least it's an attractive paperweight.

I love getting the flu! It's a free pass to stay up all night and sleep all day. I get to do nothing productive and not get yelled at for it. Play Atari. Read books. Cruise ebay. And I now have this instant wait staff that popped out of nowhere!

    I usually load up on Vitamin C and zinc. It doesn't prevent being sick, but it does shorten the duration of the cold/flu.

    Yes. Getting better, I'll try and prolong it another day or two. Ringer's Lactate? Monster energy and Arby's, though if I'm caught with THAT all bets are off. Divorce? Why?

Someone wrote an article about my show and upcoming comic book release! http://bit.ly/2j5I72I My comic is the first to have anime characters smoking pot and playing the 2600 Sears 6-switch! There's also an animated commercial on my Youtube now. What game should I play tonight? I'm also interviewing one of the members of GWAR xo

    Anime characters smoking weed? I'd rather see that over most of the anime that came out in the past fifteen years.

    Buy it if you want, you're the one spending money not the haters. Like it or not Ataribox will be the official Atari branded console/computer that came out after 25 years.
