  1. New study reveals that Fergie is responsible for the toilet paper shortage.

      Thanks RT!  I can always count on you for some good toilet humor!

  2. And that's not very fun, if you fall down into a DUMB. They like to use their DUMBs for things. Not fun for anyone!




  3. Look at your brain. It's so nice and clean. WHO washed it?

      I'd be banned Fo Lyfe if I posted this.

  4. Don't know why, but the fix for it here is probably the same: https://www.randomterrain.com/atari-2600-memories-batari-basic-commands.html#kernop_pfcolors
  5. Ouch! He kicked her right in the euphemism! That's not friendship!

  6. You forgot to wake up again, didn't you?

  8. What was the name of the old lady who played the drums in the 1960 movie Pollyanna?

      I'm going to take a wild guess and say Signe Hack?

      I guessed that too after looking at the uncredited cast, but I think the drummer isn't even in the uncredited list. Looks like this is Signe Hack on the left:




      And in the middle:




      And behind Elly May Clampett:




      Looks like she's at the back of the crowd here:




      And on the right behind the two people talking:




      Here for a fraction of a second:




  9. I just did a test with data in the main loop and outside of the main loop and both compiled. In other BASIC-style programs that I used, if I remember correctly, the program would crash if the flow of the program ran over normal data. I'm still going to keep all of my normal data outside of the main loop so I can find it quicker.
  10. Instead of copying and pasting, here is a link to my blog entry: atariage.com/forums/blogs/entry/16688-bought-shiny-pinball-balls-from-amazon/
  11. (As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. I get commissions for purchases made through certain links.) I've been planning on making a computer pinball game since around 1985. First it was going to be on the VIC-20, then the Commodore 64, then the Amiga 500, and now the Atari 2600. Maybe this time I'll really do it with some help: atariage.com/forums/topic/270373-realistic-pinball-physics-on-the-atari-2600/ Anyway, I've been wanting to own a real shiny pinball machine ball for inspiration, but every time I did a search at Amazon, there were complaints about rusty or damaged balls for pretty much every company, so I would give up. In May of 2020, I decided to try again and after a lot of searching I found #ad Ball Baron. There were no reviews under their 1-1/16 inch standard size pinball page, but the other sizes seemed to have good reviews, so I went to the #ad Pinballs/Ten 1-1/16" High Polish Chrome Steel Balls page and ordered them. I only wanted one ball, but I figured that buying ten would give me a greater chance of ending up with at least one ball that wasn't rusty or damaged. The box of balls arrived much sooner than expected and none of them are rusty or damaged. They were tightly wrapped in a bag, in a bag, in a bag, inside of a box, so they didn't even receive a small amount of damage during shipment. Now I have what seem to be 10 perfect standard size (1-1/16 inch) pinball balls. Below are a few photos I took with an iPhone. I'll see if I can buy some felt and post better pictures later. If you are looking for balls for your pinball machine that appear to be in excellent condition, it seems like you might be able to trust #ad Ball Baron. [Disclaimer: Buy the balls and use them at your own risk. I only bought them to look at. I have not used them in a real pinball machine.] Random Terrain

  13. The bB page says these things: "Using multiple if…thens in a single line might not work correctly if you are using boolean operators." "If you use || in an if…then statement, the statement must be located at the beginning of a line. At this time, compilation will succeed but your program will probably not work correctly. This issue will probably be fixed in a later version." "The else keyword might not work correctly in a statement containing &&. The else keyword may also not work as expected when there is more than one if…then on a single line."
