Occasionally I get in a weird mood and just think F*ck it, I will just stick to arcade games in MAME for all my gaming needs. :p

    If I could let go of the past and my childish hoarding, I'd realize that iOS has all I "need" for game-type stimulation.

    With the way the modern gaming scene has become lately, I wish I had a "time machine" that played 80's/90's games. Hence why I'm trying to build my emulation collection with little spare time I have...

    How did I know who you were talking about before looking it up? Never knew his name, just his face - particularly from B5.

    So sad... my older sister had the biggest crush on him. Posters all over his walls. I've always liked his music and thought he was talented. He's gone through a lot.

    Bummer. 67 seems young, must have done some hard living in the 70's and 80's......and 90's, 2000's and 2K10's.

    His hard living was well-documented, even more than Johnny Cash.

    I've seen her on TV as long as I remember... Oh yeah, she was in a couple games for the Atari ST and a pinball game on the Lynx. =)

    There needs to be a tax funded PSA to get the word out to the general public about the dangers of this procedure!!

    People who come here only to post snarky political BS in the status updates (as I noticed him doing on several occasions) shouldn't be here at all, IMHO. This is a place for classic computers and games.

Ugh guys thought I got lucky...found in recycling a mint looking iPhone 5s....I connected it to wife charge cable but it will not even turn on DOH ! Too good to be true........

    did you look up the ways you can revive an iPhone on the interwebs? Could be locked up and needs to be reset. Combo of button presses or holding in the power button while doing this or that. I forget now, but it should start, even with a dead battery when it's plugged in... assuming it's not totally borked. Someone dropped in the toilet or something... lol

    Yep believe me I was all over that lol.It looks pristine so I am thinking yeah was dropped in liquid, person waited for it to dry out but no luck, I tried everything. Oddly many things I have found in our Electronics recycling from DVD recorders to PC hardware have all been fine so I took a chance.

    I keep a retired iPhone 4 in one of those little iON arcade cabs out by the bar. Keep meaning to load it up with games, but somehow can't find the desire to screw around with it like that. Looks cool sitting in the tiny cab though. lol

    So sorry to hear of his passing. I fondly remember his match with the Red Rooster back in the day.

    he made it to 91, which is pretty good. It's sad to hear he passed though.
