  1. They just hired an architect for a major project at work. Anybody familiar with someone named "Lois Bidder"?

      Yes. Met her at Moe's Tavern in Springfield.

  3. So, I got a Roland TD-17, which allows importing WAV files.  I had saved the original samples from the Linn LM-1 years ago.  So now I imported all of the samples into the TD-17, and viola! Instant LM-1!!!

      I bought a Casio CZ-1000 so I can interface with my Atari 130XE via midi. Eventually I would like to get a Yamaha DX-7. And no I can't play but I would like to learn. I love playing around with all the sounds/instruments.

  4. The NFT craze continues to abolish all that I've ever known to be true and sane.

  5. If Mozart and Cinderella had a love child, would it be called Mozzarella?

  6. Cedar Point theme park here in Ohio has had to close a few days in the week due to not having enough employees. Even though they are paying $20 an hour. So come to Ohio if you want to make about $40k/year making overpriced munchies for families or tearing tickets at the roller coaster. Not making light of their work, I am sure it's hard, as most jobs are. Rent is cheap in Ohio. $700-$800 a month in most areas will get you a nice apartment with a pool, gym, etc..

      OK I am quitting my job and going to work at the park for the summer. Do I get to use the park for free on my days off? Do I get a discount on the tasty but crappy park food? I just need to find a cheap rent for the summer. 

       

       

      I am joking obviously but I tell you if that park was close to me I almost might be tempted just for the fun of it.

      If a person feels compelled to talk argue politics or boost about themselves, go to Twitter. I see people trying to push their crap but while trying to not cross the line.

       

      This is a nice place to talk about computers and video games. I hope it stays this way. I love hearing about what people are doing with their computers and game systems though. There are lots of very talented people here. It just amazes me sometimes what people can do. I wish I had half their talent.

  12. Just got out of the hospital (took about six hours). They didn’t need to put a stent in. They said it was right on the edge of needing a stent. They went in through my right wrist, so now I can’t use my mouse hand for a couple of days.

      Hoping you have a fast recovery, Random. Glad you are OK.

      I'm so sorry frankodragon. I do hope you have other family members that can help you get through this tough time. I found also that spending some time in nature helped me when I lost my parents.

  15. What is that part of the brain called that when you think something that you probably shouldn't say at that moment, it says "Stop!!! Don't say that!"?

     

    And how come so many people are missing that part of their brain?

  16. No, I will not hold you while you poop, sir. You shouldn't expect any employee to do that, especially now. That's a good way to catch the rona.

      I heard that that is what all the kids are calling it. ;)

  17. Had to put my cat down this morning. :( He was only 5 but had an autoimmune disease that was untreatable. Goodbye, little friend - see you on the other side. 😢

  18. 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.

      Sorry, Trebor. The hardest decision to make with pets. They shine brite but so short. Hang in there.

      What could Random Terrain be talking about? I wonder. Oh well. I have to work tomorrow all day until 5 P.M. (or 1700 hours in military time) so no celebrating for me until after all the work is done. :)

  21. Getting older and no longer having time for this hobby is a sad reality. I will offer some items for sale soon, when I can get time to test them and pack them. I will keep A8 and the really old stuff that I love.

    1. Allan

      Allan

      I hear you. Getting older really changes perspective. Almost fifty now and don't play much. What little time I have I use scanning and archiving Atari 8-bit computer stuff so it will be around in at least digital form when myself and the actual physical stuff is long gone.

  24. I'm out of the hospital and my mom's marrow transplant went well! I'm pretty tender but taking it easy. Mom still has another month in the hospital for observation, though. :/

      Best wishes for a fast recovery for both you and your mom, BassGuitri.
