  1. I wonder if anyone here is fluent/knowledgeable in Ancient Greek? (E. G. Attic, Ionic, Doric/Spartan, Aeolian, Phrygian, and Aegean.)

    1. Sauron

      Sauron

      I'm not, but I would like to be. I just started studying Koine Greek, although I've barely gotten through the alphabet. I imagine it will take me a long time (if ever) to become anywhere near fluent.

  3. After taunting me on the shelf for 25+ years I finally got around to reading 
    "Dune." Very good, but quite a dense read. I suspect I missed a lot the first time around.

      It's one of the best and most influential sci fi novels of all time. It can be a heavy read at times, but it's well worth it. Stop putting it off and get to reading!

  4. Liked "Picard" a lot. Much less ADHD camera movement than in Discovery. And the potential for storylines based on loose ends from STNG looks fantastic!

      Sauron

      It seems better than Discovery so far, but it still reeks of Alex Kurtzman's stank.

  5. Having tacos tonight... but didn't have any sour cream.  I mean, is it even worth it?

    1. Sauron

      Sauron

      Having some good hot sauce should make up for the lack of sour cream.

      Do you need some time on you own? Do you need some time all alone?

  8. This millennial (27) I work with sucks on his vape device all day completely addicted to nicotine. The kid claims he's never smoked a real cigarette in his life.

    1. Sauron

      Sauron

      Vaping is a hell of a lot better than smoking real cigs. I quit smoking real cigs several years ago thanks to a "heat not burn" device.

  9. Well, it looks like I may have time to rejoin my favorite hobby, unfortunately. I no longer have any parents to take care of. Strangely enough, it seemed like a chore at first, and now that I no longer have that responsibility, I miss it, and I feel empty. Hello AtariAge friends. (I know everybody goes through this, but I feel like complete shit)

      Sorry to hear about your loss. But you still have a family here at AA.

      Typical leftists proving that demand for hate crimes heavily outstrips supply, so they have to manufacture it.

  11. I'll say it: Sonic Spinball is the only Sonic game worth playing on the Genesis.

      You know what they say about opinions. And yours stinks worse than mine.

  12. Robert Plant divorced Maureen in 1983 and entered a relationship with her sister Shirley, with whom he had another child in 1991.

    1. Sauron

      Sauron

      His wife is named Maureen, but it's a totally different chick. Otherwise, Plant's got some explaining to do.

  13. Is there any 3D animation software that is affordable at the consumer level anymore? 3D Studio Max and Maya are super pricey these days...

    1. Sauron

      Sauron

      You could always go back to 3DS Max's roots and use Cyber Studio for the Atari ST.

  14. Looking to play through an Ultima game - other than Akalabeth on iOS and 5-10 minutes each of Ultima III & IV, I've never played them. Reocmmendations? I'm inclined to start with an earlier one because it won't be as big a time commitment.

    1. Sauron

      Sauron

      Ultima IV is easily the best starting point, although Ultima VII is probably the easiest to come to grips with.

  15. I got an odd russian Death and Return of Superman for the genesis, early 2000's comic box art, superman returns poster for the cart art, 32x cartridge shell and completely russian text, pretty awesome right?

  16. Atari VCS and Atari SA are unstoppable. Not the community, not the taco thread, can stop it. The pre-orders keep rolling in!

    1. Sauron

      Sauron

      Glad to see the paranoid schizophrenic Atari community hasn't had the least bit of an impact on its momentum. Here's to hoping that Atari can make something of this hardware.

  17. Can we just talk about how ALF is the greatest television show ever made? About how this amazing TV program about an alien visitor made you a better person just by watching it?

  18. For some reason I've been watching Mac Classic auctions... not sure exactly what I'd do w/ a B&W 68k Mac, but it seems appealing...

    1. Sauron

      Sauron

      Old B&W Macs are great for writing. The problem would be in getting your manuscript off of it in order to be published.

  19. This week 44 people lost their lives due to flooding in Texas, while in the same week more than 1,200 people have died from flooding across South Asia. It's weird how we as a society focus our priorities.

    1. Sauron

      Sauron

      Except that you are trivializing the loss of life in Texas by saying "oh, it's not so bad".

  20. Well, I bought No Man's Sky tonight, and am quite pleased. The new patch and sale really up its price/content ratio.

      I just bought it too. It runs like crap on my comp, but still enjoying it.

  21. So I bought a new HP laptop (couldn't afford the Mac tax this time around) and its i7 seventh gen, 16gb RAM, 1TB HD, but they skimped on the graphics card, it has an Intel 620 "integrated" graphics processor. Where do I find the best card that will fit in this computer?

    1. Sauron

      Sauron

      If it's a laptop, and it doesn't have an option for a GPU upgrade, then you're stuck with the integrated graphics.

  22. French press release says Ataribox will be crowdfunded. In other news, an ominous cloud of doom has appeared above Atari headquarters.

    1. Sauron

      Sauron

      Considering that Atari is now essentially IP holder with very little in the way of liquid assets, this doesn't come at all as a surprise.

  23. Coleco Holdings' so-called "apology" to the community reads like a Mel Gibson apology to the Jewish community.

    1. Sauron

      Sauron

      Calling that an apology is reallllly stretching it....
