    My sister-in-law's family is from Mexico. They own a chain of Mexican stores and restaurants, and during our last visit, we were treated to lots of genuine Mexican food. It was nothing at all like Taco Hell.

    TexMex? hardly.

    Of course TexMex in California is probably as close to real TexMex as Taco Bell is to real Mexican.

    The founders of Taco Bell had a disagreement. One went and started Taco Bell. The other one started El Taco -- much, much better and more authentic food. Plus, El Tacos had a real mission-style vibe inside -- with fireplaces, candles on the tables, etc.. -- all for only maybe 20% more in food cost to the customer. Quality vs. quantity.

I saw a guy waiting at a red light the other day. He was picking his zits and eating them. Is that worse than eating your foot skin? http://youtu.be/b_eaxFUZUSU

    By the time I hit Zit Age, I was old enough not to be curious of eating things that aren't food. ;)

I was quite happy using Unity free until I discovered that Epic have made Unreal Engine 4 available to poor people. $19 a month for a AAA engine??

    I discovered with those "cheap" AA engines like HeroEngine that they still expect you to have expertise and tools like a full development house. Your luck may vary, though.

    Hadn't heard of HeroEngine. There is a lot of competition in the game engine field, which can only be good for developers. Unity only moved to version 4.x last year. They're already advertising Unity 5.

So now I am a proud owner of an Intellivision. Cool stuff, though I am convinced that whomever designed the controllers owned a lot of stock in big pharma.... hoping one day to get rich off of anti-arthritis meds. And I discovered an Atari Advantage poster in one of boxes of 7800 games I hadn't bothered to open in 4 months.

    The hand controller isn't nearly as bad as its reputation. Just avoid using it as you would a gamepad: use your fingers to rotate the disc along its edge, rather than smudging it from the center with your thumb.

    I like holding the controller in my left hand and using my right index finger or thumb on the disc. You can also rock it back and forth with two fingers in games like Astrosmash.

    I hold the controller with both hands. my left hand holds the controller sideways and my thumb moves the 'disc', my right thumb pushing the numbers and fire button, and holds the right side, while I use the disc with my left thumb. Most comfortable way for me.

When I find something I lost it's not always in the last place I looked.

    Actually, it is in the last place you looked, because in order to find it, you would have to have looked there.

    Sometimes I find it, and keep on looking till I realize I found it.
