  1. Someone had an amazing find in the UK. An unused Atari STE Discovery Pack in his grandparents' attic. It was still in giftwrap. He or his parents had no idea why it was never gifted. I want, but wife would slaughter me like a pig.

  3. I was playing the C64 version of H.E.R.O. recently. I appreciate the updated graphics, but I think I prefer the clean simplicity of the 2600 version more. Am I crazy?

      Game-play matters, clutter and eye-candy loses it's charm. The 2600 delivers a smooth crisp experience and let's your imagination do it's thing. A nice clean, simple graphics game that's easy on the eyes and enjoyable. H.E.R.O. on the 2600 is one of the best.

  4. Today I saw a PAL 50Hz signal on a CRT for the first time.  I was surprised how much more flickery it looked vs the NTSC I'm used to.

  5. TIL Helium messes up iPhones.

      They're aware of it, they know how and why... you'd think they'd fix it... nope just make an obscure note... hope people just buy new ones. Done and done. Evidently it's not just common helium that is sold at the party stores everywhere, but other gasses as well. Maybe we can seal it ourselves or slow it down so it doesn't matter. Party time! We're the chipmunks...

      heh, this explains why my phone went stupid... We were blowing up balloons for a celebration, and popped/emptied all of the stuff when done. It recovered over time. I would never have guessed the cause! Now it all makes sense.

  10. Anyone ever put Helium in their car tires? I mean like it would give lower rolling resistance like in hard drives and maybe even make the wheels lighter, so less gas.

      I'm okay with an 80 / 20 mix but you mileage may vary.

  12. It's funny after close to 10 years on here you start to see new members bring up the same questions again and again "Why didn't Atari do this or that" "What would have made them successful?" haha

      • but [email protected]@k everything is low stock, NOS, super rare, and vintage... some big store chains liquidate low stock items for pennies on the dollar. clearance, too good to waste, etc.
  15. My Mom got a Covid19 test and it came back negative.  She had been to a club to see a band and one her friends who was there tested positive a few days later, so my Mom had to get tested.

      simbalion, now that is more of a worry. don't miss a beat... fast attention to the broad array of treatments being key. A good Doctor may offer a prophylactic or proactive treatment approach in this case. Can't hurt to touch base and see, always best to try.

      Glad she's healthy... some of the tests are still unreliable and can be somewhat useless. some give false positives as well as negatives- it still doesn't discriminate against other corona types. Take it all with a grain of salt and do whatever you can to stay strong and healthy. Exercise and staying in shape appears key. Get fresh air, Enjoy all that life has to offer... anything else probably isn't really a life.

      stupid tire pressure sensors with sealed up - inside the case button cells from the factory... stupid! now you have to decide, all new? or careful hack to open and reseal without adding weight and keeping strength / integrity. no reason for this silliness, they could have made them easily replaceable an even used tire rotation to recharge them... par for the course these days.

  20. I prefer Gaplus to Galaga.

    1. _The Doctor__

      _The Doctor__

      Gaplus & Galaga 3 are the same game.
      Gaplus released first and no one knew it was part of the Galaga universe, the arcade earnings were poor. The game was too hard after parsect-sector 9. They release an "update" kit to with a few roms changing the title screen to read Galaga 3 along with a replacement marquee.

      Galaxian 1, Galaga 2, GALPLUS 3... all the same game in a series, names are transferred from 1 game to the next... so GALPLUS is GALAGA is Galaxian

      the rant we expected... and didn't need... it's everywhere... I'd suspect if the show were made in a land full of purple people, we'd see purple things... this stuff is tiresome... if only people were logical...

      TOS had green people, black people, asian people... and on and on... it even had half of this color half of that... they had all sizes shapes and colors for people and alien... you are off base and off topic, take this crap away!

      really, color is the issue? how about it's just inhabited by humans/humanoids and they look just like anyone you'd normally see?
