Ever get so tired of having telemarketers call your house that one day, you actually do pick up the phone and start ordering a pizza or my favorite..."Graveside Mortuary. How may I assist?"

    We use NOMOROBO on the land line (it's cheaper to keep it with our plan) and I use MrNumber in my mobile. I wish I had options like that on my work line, where I get solicitations all day long.

    I have an old Visa gift card that I give to the telemarketers and after I give them the numbers, they say it doesn't work and then I say: "Really? I just stole it yesterday!" Then they hang up.

So what is this "Mad Box" console I heard about today. Scant details? Another one to add to the growing list? How long before the crowd funding starts?

    "Mad Box" sounds like a name The Onion would come up with. Or perhaps they would be more subtle.

    So, does this mean that "there will be nothing BUT good news moving forward"?

Aside from the VGA modded colecovision, which I am keeping for now, my pre-crash stuff is gone. And I feel relieved...

    VGA modded ColecoVision? Dang, that sounds promising! Did it cost a lot of money?

    Beautiful! The pre-crash stuff being gone.. I'm all for stylish and modern minimalism. Or full-on Rustic. Never had good luck integrating vintage gaming stuff into those decor schemes in a usable & functional way.

    This was a second purge. A somewhat smaller one went to my son earlier in the fall. Probably another purge coming , but that will probably be sometime early next year.

I have been cramming MatLab programming as there is a problem I need to get working on. It is nice to learn something new, but I am too old to be cramming like that. Now I have no energy for the problem!

These days, I am trying to justify keeping a Retrofreak around, but my short lived fascination with these rom dumper consoles ended.

    ^So I sent it back! But I just figured out how to run ROMs on the RetroN 5 so that's pretty cool!

Ughhh! 5200 controllers. I just need you to work so I can sell my console. I would lose money buying parts from Best...

    The "that Ataribox?" thread is the union of the universal set and the taco set. It's overlapping tacos, with everything else piled on top.

    Like tacos filled with smaller tacos, piled with tiny tacos?
