  1. Funny how the best Black Metal album of 2015 isnt even satanic:

  2. Megadeth's Dystopia blows the hell out of Slayer's Repentless. Better album in every single way.

      Any Megadeth > Any Slayer, imho. Just not a fan of Slayer. I appreciate what they do, but it doesn't connect with me at all any more. Used to like to Reign in Blood and Seasons in HS, but that was a long time ago.

  3. Saw Black Sabbath last night. Ozzy sounded alright except on Into the Void and Iron Man. Geezer and Tony were tight, and the new drummer wasnt slacking either.

    I can never seem to find one of these for some reason. I'm looking for the RS232 version.
  5. Just in case someone someday has the same exact problem as I did, here's how I fixed it. I ended up reflowing the pins on the TMS9901 chip. Apparently there was a cold solder joint somewhere, because it started to work again afterwards.
  6. Hey all, I've been having some trouble with my TI-99/4a's keyboard. Keys Y through P seem to register as keys 6 through 0, respectively. Enter seems to function as the space bar. I've done some reading, and apparently keys Y-P and Enter are all on the first pin of the keyboard connector, while 6-0 are on pin 2. I've tried cleaning the keyboard cable contacts and the keyboard cable itself has been re-seated, but to no avail. Sometimes the keyboard works as it should for a few seconds, but it immediately goes back. These two keyboard rows feed directly into the inputs of the TMS9901 chip. Should I replace this chip with one from another TI-99/4a, or is it the keyboard itself that needs replacement? Any TI gurus out there that can help?
  7. Good morning, that’s a nice tnetennba

  8. If at any time in 2015 I offended, annoyed, or made you angry, suck it up. 2016 aint gonna be any different

      None of us remember who you are, so maybe you haven't been annoying enough.

  9. If you're not into the PSP's poor screens, the console emulates extremely well on the PC. The games look great in HD. http://ppsspp.org/screenshots.html Despite what the website says, you dont really need a powerful PC to get 1080p gameplay. My mid-tier gaming rig from 2010 was able to max out all games at 60fps.
  10. Did 2015 have any redeeming qualities?

  11. I haven't used one, but I doubt that upscaler is any better than the one that comes in your tv already.
