  1. Remember that one obscure TV show that nobody remembers? There's a discord for that.

      Hard Time on Planet Earth?

      Square Pegs fan club?

    4. doctorclu


      Square Pegs was a great show.   Totally Head!

  2. I went. I was a bit disappointed it was mostly a swap meet. A bit smaller than Midwest Gaming Classic and Portland Retrogaming Expo. It had the smallest of the arcades among the three. But we had fun anyways, since we have never been to Austin.
  3. After Midwest Gaming Classic several times & Portland's several times, I got kind of burnt out with shows. But this year it's Classic GameFest in Austin for the hell of it.
  4. Welp, officially going to Classic Gaming Fest in 2 months.

  5. Watching the Nintendo doc on Crackle. Damn that 80s synth soundtrack is good. Sounds like Tangerine Dream(or is it?)

  6. trying out & streaming to twitch with Atari 2600 games for fun: https://www.twitch.tv/the_s1500


  7. I say we change the topic name from canceled to 2021 is on. Something positive.
  8. I'm on the fence on whether to fly or drive to this event. It would involve 17 hours of driving from Minnesota. I haven't hit a classic gaming convention(Portland's or Midwest Gaming Classic) in a few years, so I have that itch for a geeking-out weekend. Still there's the concern of the covid mandates in effect at that time.
  9. Have you worked a job? You may be entitled to compensation!

  10. Backing up my Playstation 2 games to hard drive. Wow, some of these are only 2 gigs. And a GIF for no reason.

      and some of them are even on CD

  11. Randomly decided to play Ikari Warriors 2 via Amazon Games, and it works great on an Xbox controller. Was kicking ass without a rotary controller!

      Go for it, it's 1985

    2. _The Doctor__

      _The Doctor__

      It's been available for NES and PC forever... why would you bother with amazon for it.

    3. S1500


      _The Doctor_ The NES version isn't that good, and the Amazon(SNK classics package) version integrates the controller just right.

  12. Watching the awful movie "Moving Violations" and they are playing Pole Position.

      Been a long time.   That's the one where he holds up his license and it's Indiana Jones (the Indy  music plays) and then he tells the cop "I photograph better than I look", right?  haha ... Good stuff...

    2. x=usr(1536)


      Think I've seen that one - any idea if it was renamed to 'Dangerous Curves' in some markets?

  13. Okay, just gonna say it, Windows POwerSHell blows the doors off of PuTTY.

      Headless Windows server sounds to me like a headless chicken.

      Actually back when I was stuck with a windows laptop at work I used to use CygWin. I  welcome all to take the step to Linux. :) 

      Indeed  Powershell is much better than putty for ssh control. Im not sure how it handles profiles and ssh keys, bash is better than that, then the next step would be a linux virtual machine (as windows user at my place do), then get rid of windows altogether and transition to Linux.

    4. CPUWIZ


      Using PS 7.1.0 and CygWin for work all the time.  PUTTY is different, long abandoned.

  14. I did some google searches, but found nothing. I'm tired of the same ol notification tones on my phone. Surely there's a website with downloadable soundbytes I can use. Anyone got one?
  15. The "Fast Times at Ridgemount High" text adventure for the TI-99/4A is frustrating. I need a walkthru.

      That's a thing?  Seriously?

      It's a thing. Seriously. A text adventure.
