    It strikes me as a "Better than NES" game...It feels...IDK, less tiled/less repetitive... Totally an indication of what the 7800 could do.

Currently obsessed with making/fixing lamps and clocks lately.

    Indeed. My wife and I inherited a dozen antique birdcages. We're really not into keeping birds, but they make awesome lamps.

    @goldleader: I've been considering adding a signature for a long time and that just convinced me.

Over-engineered and massively shielded RCA Monster Cables(tm) from 15 years ago turn out to be perfect for an unmodded Intellivision RF output.

So I broke up a pair of large Sony monitor headphones, and hot glued them under the hood of my 6-switch... Now my AtariVox has dedicated speakers! Sweet hearing the thing talk.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Suddenly it was so obvious... on top of the scuba gear below the baby incubator.

    That's what I was thinking! Just move the jock strap collection to the left...

The Charlie Brown Christmas theme is playing in my head. Things are calm and Christmasy. Very nice.

If you have a CD-i, you owe it to yourself to play Christmas Crisis within the next 10 days. Especially if you have little kids.

    That's a good one. If you want to go real obscure there's Ho! Ho! Ho! on the Apple ][ / C64.

I have the periscope/marquee of a Battlezone arcade game in the trunk of my car. Its in good shape and large. Not sure what to do with it at this point.

    Realistically if it's big and pointless on its own, If you don't need/want it, you might sell it to a Battlezone owner, but they'd have to need it as an upgrade to the one they have...

    I have friends who would probably do something weird and artistic with such a thing...

    The idea I like the best so far is to make an Ipod dock out of it.
    @DrSpuds: Vacuum Formed ABS and Acrylic ... yum?

Just watched the first 29 minutes of Tron with my two very young kids. It was so much fun and a major cerebral exercise describing to them what was going on.

    TRON is such an amazing movie & I love the whole nostalgia of the arcade games in it. It's a shame Disney isn't continuing with this awesome franchise. On a random note I really dug TRON Uprising and was sad when it didn't get a 2nd season. On another random note not sure if everyone saw that the director of TRON Legacy is at the helm of Top Gun II which really could have it's own thread on here.

    Wow, we had TRON while kids have The Emoji Movie...

    (BTW, did you watch Wreck-It-Ralph with them?)

    Tron is a great movie for kids, especially kids who already like computers. It's very spiritual and mind-expanding in its own way, and of course there has never been another movie since which looked quite like it.
