  1. Atari's VCS has so many exclusives*, it's great!

     

    *Exclusives may be available on other platforms from day one, and may, in fact, be games from other systems ported to the VCS.

      Cebus, domestic was my initial reaction as well for some reason. Just feel that Al Qaeda would have stuck a suicide bomber directly in the crowd when it was busiest.

      French TV's trying to sell us the "right wing pro-gun ownership extremist". Exactely what I expected them to do.

      What happened to lawyer, bitch?

    4. Cebus Capucinis

      Cebus Capucinis

      Lawyer might still happen, but the MBA is an intermediate step. I had to make the best of what was available, and I couldn't go to law school when I started this program.

  4. Just got done with my first week of training for my job: BIRD EXPERT at PetSmart! :)

      Yeah Adventure Vision by Entex!   Always wanted one but never saved the dough for it.  In 1982 (Sears Catalog) they were $80 (came with Defender) and each game was $15.  So $125 for all of it!  I kept meaning to order one but something else would come along, bought a mini pinball, bought Atari and Coleco games, and a Vectrex...Then after I got a computer + Internet, and found eBay...Well, they've been in the thousands ever since!  (Haven't looked lately,  Would 2 grand still get ya a complete set?...Probably not)

    3. Cebus Capucinis

      Cebus Capucinis

      I'm glad I kept what I kept at least. Though sad about selling what I sold (near complete SMS collection (both US and EU) and my PCJr and /4a stuff) at least I'll pretend they got me here today. LMAO

    4. thanatos

      thanatos

      Yeah, it's the opposite of what I thought would happen.  I thought there would be a lot of selling and lower prices due to furloughs and businesses closing.  Crazy.

       

  7. Local place has a Williams Fast Ball for sale. Really interested, but $900 in Jeep parts later....

      Gonna recommend the NP242, because a locking centre diff is *damned* useful and will handle a 350 no problem.  Can verify that it's absolutely usable with a manual transmission, despite what teh intarwebz will say.  Will require modifying driveshaft lengths, though.

       

      That said, have you given thought to a 4.0 stroker?  Keep the bottom end of the 258, mate it to a 4.0 head, do a few other tweaks, and walk out with a 4.5-litre straight-6 with no need to get crazy with mounts, etc.  Not that those are a huge problem for a 350 swap - but I really love the I6 :)

    3. Cebus Capucinis

      Hmm, looking at that I'd probably get enough of a HP increase for my needs. I don't need a 550HP / tons of torque beast because I'll never tow anything heavier than a small pop-up tent trailer with it.

      I should also just jump the gun and put HEI in it, as that's a cheap gain of 20-30 usually.

      Oh I see, a resale store, not a thrift store. Maybe people should stop giving them stuff and make them buy their stuff so they can re-sell it then.

    3. Grig

      Grig

      They get a lot of their stuff from Target, so it's partially true. They do still accept donations ... not sure how that is RESALE and not THRIFT. Oh yeah, don't forget that they look up ebay starting bid prices for their "collectibles and video games". Like I said - Bastards.

  9. Okay, I am announcing it now: I am driving to Phoenix in about 2 hours for THE BIGGEST JOB INTERVIEW OF MY LIFE. Game Daze, an amazing board game company, is interviewing me to potentially hire me to RUN MY VERY OWN BOARD GAME STORE!

      Thanks guys! I came down on short notice for them, so I think that will impress as well -- shows I'm a "git r' done" kind of guy, and I thought up some great questions and some bah-zingers for the interview that hopefully will really help them think I'm the A number 1 guy for any of their positions!

  13. Went to the "in-person" interview for the company I flubbed the phone interview for. They were even MORE rude and abrasive. I stopped the interview 80% of the way through and said "You know what? No. I will NOT work for this company if you treat me this way."

      I used to use Paychex for my payroll *and* have been to their HQ in Rochester, NY. They are beyond arrogant and extremely rude. I know someone that worked there for over ten years...he doesn't have a lot of good things to say about them.

      Yeah, I did a bit of research on glassdoor.com about them and it seems that the biggest problem people have with them is their attitude. People have great things to say about the company's programs but hardly anything good to say about the actual PEOPLE in the company. Yikes!

      Well, the most insulting thing was that I had NO idea what she was even talking about. I listed jobs when I was in high school and college -- of course I didn't keep those. After I got out of college I spent three years with a company, and the only reason I left was a layoff.

      Here's how I would respond: "Loyalty is a two-way street. If it's okay for employers to engage in mass layoffs whenever they please instead of trying to build long-term relationships with their employees, then it's okay for me to leave whenever I please if it doesn't suit my interests to stay anymore." I somehow doubt that would get me hired, though.
