  1.  Why does the edit profile have a field 'About Me' that doesn't actually show up when viewing someone's profile?

      Weird. It should show up in one of the tabs, next to "Activity" and "Clubs"

      Are you browsing on a Tablet/Phone?

      Maybe it's different on mobile than on desktop PCs

      It does show up only if the user actually put some info in it. I can see the "About Me" tab in your profile.

  3. I suddenly felt old. In a quiz for fifth graders (11 years old), one of the questions was which invention came up with the keyboard, long before computers.

    I.e. a typewriter, which supposedly would be something ancient for people in the 21th century.

      I still have a couple perfectly working Olivetti typewriters: a "Studio 46" which was the one I had as a kid and the "Lettera 32" which belonged to my grandfather.

      I still use them from time to time e.g. for labels.

  5. I'm in the midst of converting a Fatal Run cart into the NTSC version and for some reason it's not booting. Any ideas?

      Yes, that board doesn't need extra logic, and in theory it should work just by replacing the rom with a pin compatible eprom. Sorry for the confusion.

      Sorry, we posted at the same time. In many 2600 carts, the mask rom integrates the bankswitching logic. So you can't just replace it with a standard eprom, but you need to add the bankswitching logic as an external circuit. The PAL Fatal Run cart you have might be different. How many chips does it have on it?

      After re-reading the previous posts, I guess the original cart uses a standard otp eprom, so the bankswitching is already implemented in the board. In that case, disregard my previous reply...

      Also double check your bankswitching logic, whether you're using a PLD or off-the shelf logic ICs.
