  1. You know those videos that go viral of people fighting in a parking lot or whatever?  I always feel like I'm watching one of those when I find a locked thread I wasn't part of and go in and read it to see what happened.

    1. GoldLeader


      Heh,   ...  I hear ya.

  2. Wico Command Control Joystick on shopgoodwill... just 4 more hours on the auction.  Currently at $6 with no bids.

      No one bought it.  Granted it said Untested, possible parts/repair.  I only like the ball top not bat style and I have one already...They are total workouts. Your hands will never be so tired.  Leaf switches are brutal when you get used to micro switches.

    3. Eltigro


      They actually had one of these (bat type even) on display at the NVM I think.

      wish that site would ship to canada :( 

  3. Went to the National Videogame Museum in Frisco, Tx yesterday... they had a Circus Convoy for sale in the gift shop.  :)

      I can do better than paint a picture...


    3. GoldLeader


      Now, That's what I'm talking about!!


      And a copy of Vectorblade next to it too!   Funny,  I also bought Circus Convoy followed by Vectorblade!

      Cheetahmen 2..(shudder)

  4. Someone must've turned in some Jaguar stuff to Goodwill.  Browsing the site and so far I've seen auctions for a Zool 2, Raiden, and Cybermorph and Iron Soldier (last two together in one auction).

    1. doctorclu


      Wow cool.

  5. Any Terry Pratchett fans out there upset about The Watch?  Did they read the books?

      Just seen the trailer and the Wikipedia page. WHAT WERE THEY THINKING? Vimes is nothing how I imagined him. More like a thug than a beaten-down cop. Vetinari's a woman? Was Charles Dance too busy? Carrot is too scrawny. 

    3. Tickled_Pink


      Just noticed: The Watch Trailer: 1.5K likes, 5.6K dislikes. The masses have spoken.

    4. Eltigro


      Yeah...  Carrot too small.  Cheery too big (and no beard).  Angua not right either...  poor casting for quite a bit of it.  Vimes could have been okay, but the costuming and makeup don't sit right with me.  Also, apparently, there's no Fred Colon and Nobby Nobs at all.  It is very loosely based on the books I guess.  The Going Postal series was much better cast... much closer to the books... but I'm guessing Pratchett had more say in that one.

  6. So let's see... member here, following on Twitter, Subscribed on YouTube, following on Facebook page, just joined the Discord... am I missing anything?

    1. DuggerVideoGames


      Wouldn't be shocked if they had an OnlyFans page.  Heard Albert's always wanted to show off the joystick.  Not subscribing to that, though!

    2. NE146


      The secret IRC channel.. but that's only for the 3l33tz

  7. Got a bluetooth mouse, so now I have an extra USB port.  😃

  8. The wife and I went upstairs to confront the upstairs neighbor about the noise.  (Running, stomping...)  We'll see how that turns out.  Sigh...

    1. nanochess


      Good luck!

    2. Master Phruby

      Master Phruby

      I saw that in a horror movie. Hopefully she doesn't discover something gooey upstairs.

  9. Pushing Keatah's status out of the stack.  lol

  10. So I just found out a couple days ago that there was an AtariAge FB group...  I had to find out about it in another group.  I can't believe you didn't tell me.  I thought we were friends!  lol

      A lot of people on the AtariAge Facebook group are oblivious to that the AtariAge forum exists. It is almost like a parallel universe sometimes.

    3. Eltigro


      Get out of here with your logic and sense!  I'm here to be outraged!  lol  Yeah, I just haven't looked into it.  I'm not on Facebook a whole lot anyway.  But hey, I'm in the AA XBox Live group... or would be if I still subscribed to XBox Live...

    4. Albert


      If you look at the footer at the bottom of every page on AtariAge, there are links to the AtariAge Facebook group, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube accounts.  :)

  11. Got a new computer.  Old one konked out again...  wish I had saved a lot of files off of it.  Will need to see if I can find one of those cables that can connect to a hard drive via USB.

    1. Flojomojo



    2. DragonGrafx-16


      If it was a desktop then just stick the old hard drive in the new one... if it was a laptop one of those hard drive transfer kits might be of some help.

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

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

    3. adam242


      As long as you have Cholula, you're good.

    4. GoldLeader






      That's almost like coffee without Coffee Mate!  I mean sure, you can do without in a pinch,  but hopefully there's a store nearby...Even If I had to go further (since I hate the nearby stores), I'd probably make a quick trip out to get some before continuing...Then again...Tacos!  They say a bad day fishing is still better than a good day working...

  13. Finally got a set of composite cables for my Jaguar. Sooo much better than the rf. Should’ve done this years ago.

      if you think that's good, you should try S-Video cables if you have a CRT that supports them. 

    3. Eltigro


      Actually, I do. Lucked out on a Samsung that has Composite, s-video, and Component inputs. Thought I was getting the s-video but didn’t notice until after they shipped that they were the regular composite. Still, huge improvement. 

    4. Rick Dangerous

      Used to do EVERYTHING through composite...now that I've seen HD I need S-video or Component ☹️

  14. Happy B-Day, Al!

    1. Albert


      Thank you, much appreciated!  :)

  15. Watching a stream on Twitch and they just called the last Blockbuster and asked them what the last movie was that was just rented.  It was Goosebumps 2.

    1. KaeruYojimbo
    2. Magmavision2000


      I remember hearing somewhere that the last rental at a franchise blockbuster (I believe the current one is independent) was This Is The End.


    3. Eltigro


      Just thought it was kinda funny...  talking about rental places and Blockbuster... someone in chat found their number, so they called on stream.  Told them, "Hey we're just trying to figure out what movie to watch and want to know what the last movie was that was rented..."  The guy on the phone could be heard asking someone else if they did the last transaction and what was the movie.  Just kinda fun that they actually did it.

  16. Next to last day at current job.  I'm planning on being here tomorrow, but it seems like people are betting against it.  lol

    1. CPUWIZ


      Make a deal with one of them and cash in on a bet.

    2. GoldLeader


      So...How'd it go?

  17. Going to go look at apartments today.  Buyers still have until Monday to opt out on the house.  Hoping things go our way.  Ready to be moved in and starting new job.

    1. jd_1138


      Good luck with the house sale, apartment, and new job.  

  18. So, since AA is slightly slower to load, I've made a new game.  I click on the shortcut, then try to make my mouse pointer be in the exact right place to click the "Forum" link before it appears.  I need to start keeping score... a percentage type accuracy thing maybe...

  19. Someone should make a game featuring little creatures named Norts.  Some kind of platformer/run and gun/puzzle game or something.  Then, as a spin off, make a fighting game featuring the characters and name it NortFight.  I think it'd sell millions.

  20. Finally pimped my ride...

      I forgot to disable Nathan's ability to post status updates.  DOH!

    3. GoldLeader


      Of course almost every frankodragon reply in the Atacobox thread has a "would of", but I'm pretty sure he's just trolling CPUWIZ...

    4. Eltigro


      I was just annoyed by a thread in which the same person used "would of" or "could of" in about three replies in a row.  lol.   I've always admired CPUWIZ's signature because it's one of my grammar pet peeve's as well.

  22. The number of ways drunk people walk is simply staggering.

  23. If you don't pay your exorcist, do you get repossessed?

      My wife laughed and said 'that's lame'.

  24. Had some trouble with my XBox One controller "double clicking" when pressing left on the d-pad.  This made navigating menus difficult to do quickly and caused some movement issues in games where I use the D-pad (like Tempest 4000).  After looking online, I tried the easiest suggested fix... blowing really hard into the controller by the d-pad.  And... it worked.  Don't know what the deal was... dust in there?  But it seems to be working fine, now.  /shrug

      Just think it's funny... common retro-gamer advice is to never blow into cartridges, and I just fixed something for the newest system I own by blowing in it.  lol

    3. wongojack


      blow GIF


      It won't fix everything

    4. Eltigro


      She obviously never had a copy of Tooth Protectors for her 2600.  lol...  ...   ... I mean, neither have I, but...
