      I'd love for Sega to re-release the Sega CD as an all in one unit that combines the 32X, CD and main genesis on an ARM64 chipset. Everything else, sound and graphics untouched. Maybe give the option to enhance but leave it otherwise. Games are on SSD and usb.

      I grew up on the NES, Genesis and Windows 98. I played Tomb raider III, Bugs Bunny Double Trouble and Bible Adventures, So believe me when i tell you that I KNOW THE MEANING OF PAIN!
      The opposite of pain is Space quest and Sam and Max hit the road. that's just mental torture, that's fine
      1. Clint Thompson

        It was only painful because Windows 98 would sometimes take 20 minutes to get up and running to where you needed it to. Imagine growing up with a TRS-80, ASCII or text adventure games and only getting to play an NES at friends house instead of owning one.

      Be skinny: No dessert for years, endless slimfast.
      Be beautiful: Mascara shortage, plastic surgery required every 5 years.
      Feed world hunger: They'll just get hungry again...and the fridge is bare
      end Poverty: no new jobs means the economy stagnates. No cash flow=no food. no food=Hell
      Hell= Half life 3

        Dear Ageless   This is from the "Commodore 64 Crap" blogger/webmaster, alias "C64 hater"/Paul Londoner.   I'm sorry to hear from you that TMR/Jason Kelk has died. You mentioned COVID-19. I've just done a search about this and read stories that Jason was in hospital for fourteen months up until his death. These stories said that he was in hospital with COVID-19. You also mentioned COVID-19 and told me to stay safe.    I plan to make a post about TMR/Jason on my blog "Commodore 64 Crap" ASAP after checking their policies about COVID-19. After my last post I didn't know what to post next, because I got bogged down trying to convert a short listing about sprite collisions from C64 BASIC into Commodore BASIC V7 on the Commodore 128.   At this moment, I just want to say that although TMR/Jason Kelk has died, I don't know what he died of. The reports say he died of "COVID-19". Unfortunately, no such disease as COVID-19 has ever been isolated or identified. Therefore no one can say that anyone at all in the World has ever died of it. There has been a lot of propaganda based around "COVID-19" which has been used to close down the World, though. My life is in ruins and I want it back! I think that COVID-19 is propaganda made up by the Chinese Communist Government, as well as Imperial College, London and Bill Gates. Their leader is Professor Neil Ferguson who made up lots of stories predicting millions of deaths from BSE/vCJD, SARS, Bird Flu, Ebola, etc.    My plans for the immediate future are as follows.    As for my blog "Commodore 64 Crap", my plans for its future are to write some posts about flowcharting as a way to develop software, no matter what language the software ends up being written in. This applies to the C64, C128, or any computer at all. My blog is about the Commodore 64 and computing in general, NOT about TMR/Jason Kelk.   Later today, Monday June 21, 21-06-2021, I plan to go to bed at about 04:00 BST (GMT+1)  after drinking a whole bottle of sparkling wine to cheer me up from the COVID-19 propaganda and restrictions. My phone alarms will start to go off at 10:00 BST. I plan to arrive in or around Parliament Square Westminster, at about 12:00. I shouldn't be in the UK at all, but I was forced to return from Berlin, Germany because of COVID-19 restrictions which banned tourists from booking accommodation. I hadn't yet managed to upgrade my status from tourist. Today I'll be taking part in a massive protest and demo against the continuing COVID-19 restrictions and "lockdown", especially the ban on nightclubs and travel out of the UK. I hope to help cause traffic jams and blockade the Houses of Parliament, as well as support nightclubs reopening.    --   Paul Londoner

        Well.  Yeah.  Oh my.
      4. Wilco

        I don’t understand how someone can hear about the passing of such a great person, and then turn it all around to make it seem that they are just as much as a victim because “I don’t believe in COVID” 
        I hope there will be some sort of tribunal for conspiracists at the end of covid, track down the people that started the most outrageous lies and punish them. But that probably won’t happen. 
      5. Frozone212

        yeah this guy is an asshole. T.M.R was a great guy and the email was just...ugh

        Looks like a troll who thinks he’s funny. 
      7. Wilco

        I sadly know a lot of people who really believe in this sort of thing. Every time I open my phone I get a new message from my uncle about how Bill Gates runs a death cult who want to kill 99% of all people or how the US government is trying to kidnap kids. I don’t understand how anyone could be so convinced by weird Facebook comments made by a couple or deranged people.

      Years ago, at a Dave & Busters, my wife had spent all but 1000 of her tickets.

      "Anything else?"

      And then she said "I would like 100 rubber snakes."

      They had to go back and get another box, and count them out.  It was hilarious.
