  1. My mom passed away this morning.  She was not only my mom, but a friend.

  2. Wife seems to have recovered. Although not confirmed by tests (she has really bad gag reflexes so couldn't do the test properly), doctor's told her she certainly had it. Chances are that both myself and daughter had it as well but didn't come down with any symptoms.

      Very glad your Wife recovered.  Excellent news!

  3. Last night, my wife and I had to make the most difficult decision of our marriage, if not our entire lives.  We put my pup, Daisy, to sleep.

     

    I carried her in my arms from the place in which I adopted her ~10 and 1/2 years ago at 9 weeks old.  

     

    She was in my arms as she was put to sleep.  We loved her so...she will always be missed.

  4. Covid 19 - Day 24

     

    I'm not 100% but I'm getting there. I'd say I am 76-79%.

     

    Last night over a period of some hours, I felt my hearing come back.

     

    Background Tinnitus remains, much much better and far more bearable than before.

     

    I have a congested, blocked feeling in my throat. This is producing slightly yellow sputum.

     

    All other symptoms are either minimal or have resolved completely.

     

    This is how I feel this morning...

      Wow - thank you!

  6. 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

  7. Been playing drums for over 40 years...  Still can't do the "Rosanna shuffle". :mad:

    ...It's the damn ghost notes in combination with the hi-hat.

    (I have a similar issue with "Fool In The Rain")

      I do have a SoundCloud account (PacManPlus) but I would never upload a demo of me screwing up :P

  8. With luck, the Big C might finally have met its match following an announcement by Cardiff University that they've discovered a T-cell that will attack ANY cancer cell.

      Let's hope this works as expected.  That would be wonderful...

      Yep, back in July I hit the big 5-0.  And my body has been falling apart ever since.

  11. You are a bold and courageous person... afraid of nothing.

    High on a hilltop near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion.  Some say the place is haunted... but you don't believe in such myths.  One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the top most window in the tower of the old house....  You decide to investigate, and you never return.

      You guys are awesome... I didn't think anyone would get that...  I actually transferred the Vinyl to CD :D

  14. I sometimes get an odd kick out of putting on invincibility cheats in MAME and leaving an old game's demo on.  The computer controlled character doesn't know what to do when it's supposed to die!

      That's funny; I did that a *lot* with the pac-man variants

  15. Q: 7800 Meteor Shower is joystick only? The AA Store doesn't mention paddles, so probably, but wanted to ask just in case. 

    1. PacManPlus

      PacManPlus

      Yes, it is joystick only.

      Quick bit of trivia: The 'hyperspace' function (pulling down on the joystick) was supposed to have a sound effect tied in to it, but I actually *completely* forgot about it (and even that I implemented it in the first place) until much later :ponder:...

  17. Making "good" music is kind of hard, sometimes.

      Tell me about it...  I finally gave up after 30+ years of trying and putting out an album that nobody bought. :ponder:

  18. Lots of new updates over at AtariProtos.com.  I'm exhausted, but even a 101 degree fever won't stop the updates!

  19. I really need to get back to working on my 5200 game, but I keep having to play Baby Pacman!  Baby Pacman, why do you keep making me play you?

  20. Going to the Operating Room at 8 PM ET!

  21. But making mistakes is a part of life's imperfection
    Born of the years
    Is it so wrong to be human after all?

      I made a custom 9:40 version of this song taking the 12" extended version, 12" dub version, and the 7" version (because they removed the second verse in the 12" version for some strange reason) - I liked the intro of the dub version, switched over to the 12" remix, and just added back the second verse with the 7" version.
