  4. In the new house. My gaming room has access to the front balcony. Why, do you ask? For evening whiskey and cigars after a group gaming session.

      You had me at "whiskey and cigars".

  5. I think you all know what mine is.
  6. Moving into our new place tomorrow! Our space just increased by 3x square feet.....LOL.

      Congrats!

      My wife has hinted a few times over the last few years that our place was "too big", and we should think of downsizing.  And then 2020 happened and we both work from home.  Her opinion has changed drastically.  :D

    2. GoldLeader

      ^Too big!  Haha...No such thing.

    3. thanatos

      thanatos

      Well, her main reason for wanting to downsize is that I would have much less room for game/computer hoarding.  :D

  7. Passed the bar exam. Law license acquired.

      At least you aren't working for a Trial Lawyer, especially the kind that sues innocent people.

  8. I think they need to rename the internet to "Anger Generator 9000," because it seems that's all it's good for anymore.

      ^ Well, we're all human, but I like to think we keep that under control here better than most places.  If we're made aware of personal attacks and insults, we'll deal with them as needed, but of course we can't be everywhere at once.

      Porn isn't angry, hahaaha.  Neither is online shopping, of which I'm doing more of since I don't want to hang out in a hospital.  I would add fantasy sports as a benefit but that is going down the toilet for the moment.

       

      But it is what you make of it.  Don't be an asshole, don't let assholes get you upset, everything goes pretty smoothly.  The anonymity and distance convinces closet assholes to reveal themselves, allowing you to remove them from the give a shit list.  I see that as a positive, less people to be concerned about, I had my doubts about that guy but now they are confirmed, etc.

      I know. I just lost it big style with an asshole on FB earlier. Think I need to go see my therapist before I start hunting one of you f***tards down. <j/k>😘

  9. Among the disks I got with my IIc are some uhh "adult" themed software. They're hilarious. If anyone is interested I might make a thread about them! (Only showing the SFW title screens and describing them in SFW detail with a shot of the disk)

      Whoever made these disks should be banned from life. This stuff is the worst. LMAO (and by worst I mean "just really stupid shit" not "disgusting")

  10. Got my Apple IIc working! Almost half the disks I own are hacking and cracking tools. LMAO

    1. Cebus Capucinis

      Megaphreak, Epyx Crack, Anarchist's Manifesto, you name it....plus 6 disks full of hacking texts and how-to's.

  11. Not posting the links to ultra rare items or prototypes etc. is the standard among some people due to potential shill bidders, tire kickers, and trolls. With rare items there's realistically only a small handful of collectors who are able to compete in that market, and it's seen as unsportsmanlike to "blast" the auctions to anyone who can see. While it benefits those who want to take a peek or possibly try to put their hat in the ring, it also allows resellers and others who may not necessarily see the link on the other marketplaces but will definitely lurk AA and other sites another opportunity to see the item and possibly inflate the price. Generally the idea is that what competition there is for incredibly rare things should be legitimate; requiring both honest observers AND resellers, shills, and trolls to perform a search and put in the legwork is a way to ensure that competition remains that way. Arguably, as well, it keeps the prices down to what the market realistically should be, keeping items in the hands of us (rather than resellers) and more likely to benefit the community. It's not a generally accepted unspoken rule, though, and reasonable minds may differ on whether it's beneficial or not. Personally I agree with it, but others see it as preventing free exchange. There's arguments both ways.
  12. Yep! Because the keycaps have the holes that go through the bottom, I didn't want to get any glue to fall into the key itself, hence my reticence. I just used 1 toothpick, put just enough superglue on it for it to only cost the sides of the keycap, then waited a second or two for it to firm up so it wouldn't drip. Then pulled the old one. Oh, I should mention that the keycap in the pictures is a "new" one with the shaft underneath still complete. So it was just getting the old one out and replacing it with an entirely new one.
  13. Nevermind. LOL. Seems as soon as I post a thread asking for solutions I come up with one. Toothpick + superglue created enough leverage without getting glue in the keyboard.
  14. I am finally getting around to replacing a keycap that got broken on my IIc. As the photos show, the issue isn't that it cracked but that the stem broke off completely. Any strategies to get this out? The problem is that the cap broke in such a way that tweezers can't get enough of a grip to pull it, and I'm leery to super glue something to it to get more leverage.
