    No more warnings about status updates! Post about your homophobic, racist, political and religious crap somewhere else. A mod beat me to removing the latest, but said person can't do it again now either, I put a status update ban in effect. Type and then re-read what you typed and if you think it falls into one of those categories, don't submit, if you click submit anyway, it will probably be the last time you can.

    Gave someone a Christmas miracle. Found a drivers license on the ground at an ATM, and their address was only a mile away, so I hand delivered it.

    Craziest day! My 85 year old aunt found my original Atari VCS BOX! (Which I believe I bought in 1979 or 1980). Not the console (Which my cousin pawned or lost in a storage shed before he died we're pretty sure), but the box itself, which was under an inch of dust in her downstairs closet. I can confirm I bought it at Grand Central for $129.99 on sale from $159.99 cuz the price tags are still there! The box shows a Heavy Sixer but I'm pretty sure mine was a Light Sixer. I thought all of it was lost,...Never thought I'd see this again! Inside is some NES game boxes; All of it is dusty as hell!

    Good news: "I've reviewed your application and it would be great to have you as tenants. When would be a good time for you to review and sign a lease?" We can now stop looking for a house to rent.

    Covid 19 Day 18 Got a good night's sleep yesterday and woke up feeling good this morning. I've got a lingering background headache, which is probably not helped by my spending most of yesterday on here staring at my laptop! I've got a low-level background or very occasional cough. Mucus is coming up often but it is just of the normal type no dark colours no foam. I am assuming this is my body's way of forcing out the germs. This morning I noticed a marked improvement in the pain I had been feeling. Previously I had had sharp and tight squeezing pains to my sides; as well as stabbing pain in my chest when I breathed deeply or when I would go into a coughing fit which would also trigger a deep almost agonising head pain. The cough is very infrequent now. I can't cough in that deep way anymore and there is no associated head discomfort. We are getting there ! I know I was making an analogy about getting a train home. I think I just made one of my four connections. I'm tired and I am feeling a bit weak but I am on my way home. Round 10 of 15. Have some of that, you fucker !

    I checked out the thrift store today after picking up my daughter, as we were walking around she starts pulling my hand and shouting superman superman, and in cheap storage chest there is a complete in box copy of superman (she loves superman for the 2600 and noticed it instantly), the thing was full of atari games, they must have been in it when it was donated, so I bought the entire box, (4.99 for the whole thing, so worth it just for the cib superman) I get home and start going through the box, there are a few boxes I don't have, which are nice and the there is a cart only halloween, so my daughter has now has a super awesome find at only 3 years old

    The 7800 is hooked up to a CRT for the first time in over a decade, and I have to say that it actually looks pretty damn good on that TV and certainly miles better than it did on either our LCD or plasma. Huge thanks to @KeeperofLindblum for passing the TV on to me; now I can finally start in on the 'does-it-work-or-not' 5200.

    Covid 19, put to bed. Today, I had no cough. No cough at all. That is the last of the Covid 19 symptoms to go, aside from some Tinnitus which lingers. As some of you may be aware, during Lockdown it has been very difficult for me to source (buy) real food like fruit, veg and meat. The online supermarkets seem to run out of all that because people are being too greedy and buying 3 of everything. Anyway I got put on a priority list by one supermarket (none of the others) and it allowed me to finally get some good stuff. I tried to get some nice pork chops but sadly although I ordered them, they sold out. Not sure how that works. Anyway, the picture has improved somewhat and I am now eating proper food. I just had (have to eat around meds) Salmon, Potatoes, white and green leafy vegetables. I never thought I would crave *healthy food, but boy did I! It was alright getting by eating junk when I was sick, but now I am finally able to put the C19 behind me, I have no cough AT ALL now. I can start to enjoy eating well and possibly trim down a little. I am now waiting on the Home Testing Antibody tests. If I can confirm I am done with C19 100% and if my blood levels have gone up during my Iron therapy I would be 100% happy to donate plasma to those who would do with it. If I could help someone, I want to. I just don't know if the IDA will preclude it or not. If I can, I will. Stay safe people!

    COvid 19, Day 13. I just wanted to pop on quickly and to take a moment to thank all of you that have left kind messages and indicators of support. 🐼🐹🐨🦘🐰 Complete rest has made me feel a *little better, and although I might have a long way back, I am buoyed by your thoughts kind wishes and I am determined to give it my very best shot. Once again I'd like to remind you all to take this thing seriously as initially I thought it was going to be a mild case of flu, and maybe for 80% that is the case, I'd estimate I am in the last 15-10%. I'm taking a good shoeing, but I am hopeful, and I am feeling more positive as a direct results of the nice things you, people I don't even know have said. Thanks again & keep safe

    Things I thought were gone forever, found again after 20+ years in a box. Having lost so much of my Atari stuff from before I moved to the US, seeing these again really made my day.

    Tempest is back for a limited time only. Stop by AA and get moderated by Tempest today! Tempest may not be available in your country, check with your local tribal elders concerning pertinent prophecies and portents. Tempest is generally well tolerated by most people. Ask your doctor if being moderated by Tempest is right for you before posting something stupid. Don't get moderated by Tempest if you are allergic to snark or extreme sarcasm. Being moderated by Tempest may cause embarrassment, loss of self esteem, loss of community standing, loss of posting privileges, and in certain rare cases banning. Tempest is not to be taken internally. Do not taunt Tempest. Tempest. You've tried the best, now try the rest!

    When I was a kid we only had TV over the air, there were three networks, and some PBS and a few odd-ball UHF stations. Yet, there was more variety in types of show then than now. Yes there are more shows now, but everything is a copy of something else. Let that sink in for a moment.

    Covid 19, My Final Post ? _______________________________________________________________ It has been a full four weeks since I first developed the symptoms of Covid 19 aka Coronavirus. It has been a very rough ride but I feel like I have all but beat it now! This may well be my last post on it (fingers crossed, touch wood) I would like to take a moment to thank each and every one of you that expressed concern for me, offered advice, comforting kind words, used likes thanks and emojis to show you cared and those of you that took time out to message me directly your thoughts and words of support. Things looked VERY bleak on more than one occasion and I was close to death's door. That is the reality of it. you helped me come through this and for that I will always be grateful. To all you strangers thank you so much. I hope some of us get to know each other better, but if not, thank you! Thank you so much. You have restored my faith in humanity. You were my legs when I couldn't stand you were the second steps along the sand. 🐹 🐹 🐹 🐹 🐹
