    If she can set herself up with that to be self sufficient and not depend on someone else (a boss) on having to give a paycheck, all the much better. My son is going into the trades with the intent of starting his own business.

    ASL leads, I assume, to a career in schools teaching ASL to deaf and/or mute kids? May also wanna study Special Ed and get a teaching certificate also. Unless ASL already comes with that. It might.

    Yeah the food industry and baking are a safe bet. People always need to eat. Nothing better than a great bakery. I wish there was one around here.

If I had to rank my favorite classic consoles that I've owned in order, they would be 1) 7800 2) 2600 3)NES 4)Colecovision / ADAM 5) 5200. If you are counting the Atari computers, then the XE would be number 2. Note that I loved all these consoles.

    I just don't like the 7800. I don't know why. I've had a couple but I've let them go. Looking at getting into Videopac (Oddyssey 2?) collecting. Seems to be one of the cheaper systems to collect for.

    I like your list! It's hard to make such a list...I end up thinking, Well I've got a 6 way tie!

    My faves are (Not necessarily in order), Atari 2600/7800, ColecoVision, NES, SNES, Genesis, and Turbograx, (And their Japanese counterparts)... :)

I miss home computers that came with the BASIC programming language built in, or on magnetic media out of the box.

    So do I. The notion of the "personal computer", which works in the way that YOU want, has somehow gotten lost. Linux and open-source software captures some of that ethos, but it isn't as "user-friendly" as the classic home computers tried to be.

    heh... it could perhaps be the new Air Raid, or Red Sea Crossing. That is if any carts actually exist.

    As a found prototype it is interesting to see how the program gets around Atari limitations. As a game to play over and over, a modern from scratch game would rock.

Part of me misses my Coleco ADAM, but I know that now its in good hands.. And needs WAY more work / cleaning than I originally thought.

Let's creep in the frozen aisle and think one thought, trick the bridesmaid to get her to take it off. She'll pull the mushroom out, unzip the windflap and love and you can't go wronng.

    And yet, Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, Sega, and even the lowly Coleco have the sense to leave fan tribute pages alone.

Out of the four new Star Wars films, the one-offs were amazing, and the Skywalker storyline films were bad.

    I don't think that The Force Awakens was bad, I actually liked it quite a bit. Otherwise, I agree with you.

    I liked them all, but am annoyed with introducing "Instantaneous Hyperspace Starts/Stops" and "Tracking through Hyperspace" into the Universe...
