  1. Thanks Win 10 update for killing my DVD burner and HP Officejet Pro all in one move! Great Job!  👍

      Killed them or made them suddenly incompatible?

    2. Bartsfam


      Yeah...I exaggerated. They are suddenly incompatible for like the third time. Right when I needed them to work. I spend more time fixing printers after updates...

      I'm sorry.

  2. Yes!! I got mine today! Perfect timing. The wife is away for a week with her sister. Plenty of time to get to know the Phoenix! All is working fine on my Samsung TV! Very impressed.
  3. Would anyone like a free Sonic Wall TZ 210. I believe it works, I reset it to factory default and was just communicating with the set up wizard. It has been sitting in a box for 7 or 8 years, and it was going into the dumpster. Free shipping to the US..
  4. #3 and #4 are pending...started a waiting list.
  5. Update: Only Units #3 and #4 still available. As requested, more pictures coming this afternoon.
  6. **ALL GONE AND SOLD. THANKS FOR LOOKING! I am seeing if there is any interest in 4 Panasonic Toughbook CF-31, that I have for sale, before I put them on EBay. I figure there may be some fellow AA'ers that are interested. I have sold them here before, and there was an interest. Each unit is $75 plus $13 for medium flat rate shipping in the U.S. I will ship to the U.S. and Canada only. I work for a government agency, and we just replaced these 4 units. They have been docked in vehicles for the last 7-8 years. There are no hard drives. They have the original batteries installed, but they were always docked, so it is unknown of the condition of the batteries. The buyer will have to purchase a hard drive, OS, and battery. They do come with a power supply, hard drive caddy, and RW DVD. I will just label them #1 thru #4 as they may have some slight differences. Check out the pictures of the BIOS, and PM me if interested in a particular one, or if you have any questions. Thanks for looking. #1; UNIT #1 IS GONE, PAID FOR. #2; UNIT #2 IS GONE. PAID FOR!! #3; UNIT #3; SOLD AND GONE!! #4; UNIT #4; SOLD AND GONE!!
  7. Best place to sell used cell phones online? Anyone have a good experience anywhere? Have 6 Iphone 8's to sell for work.

      I just put mine on Craigslist they usually sell pretty quick. 

  8. I enjoyed this discussion, but some people claimed b.s. because there was no wires showing.

      When I posted it, some reply tweets thought that it was just a publicity photo and not a real person's set up, because there were no wires coming from the t.v. to the console and no paddles or joystick wires hanging around.

      @Bartsfam Ahh...I thought perhaps it was supposed to be a photo from back in the day and that clearly looks like a digital/better photo quality.

      Having an Atari is Awesome!  That was the point I'm sure.  Whether it was hooked up or not is irrelevant.

  9. My collection has grown quite a bit since I last posted, six years ago. My wife has asked me to downsize the collection, so it was a good time to take inventory and document what I've collected and thought that I would share. I still love to collect Coleco/Colecovision literature, advertisements, and paraphernalia. I ended up collecting two complete Colecovision Press Kits and half of another press kit. Also, thanks to members here at AA, and other sources, I was able to obtain some internal Coleco Industries documents and publicity photos. A couple of Colecovsion Video Club membership kits. And any advertisements that I can get my hands on from back in the day. I put everything into a couple of notebooks with protective plastic. Here are a couple of press kit sample pages. Some Coleco Industries internal memos and publicity shots. Included is a Colecovision Game Test check list. Two complete Colecovision Video Club membership kits. Some Colecovision fuzzy stickers. Colecovision book covers. They were included in the Video Club kit. Any Coleco/Colecovision/ADAM advertisements I can find. Here are a few samples. My favorite advertisement..where did they get these models in the 80's? Must have been a low budget shoot! A Colecovision Repro Book. From what I am told, it was a book sent out to local newspapers that could use the prints inside to advertise for the local stores that sold Colecovision and the games. Various coupons and promotions. I like the Colecovsion/Disney world cross promotion advertisement. And a Colecovision button. Some 1980's Video Game Magazines. Some I owned as a kid, some I bought within the last couple of years. And not Colecovision related, but a tin sign that I found in a dumpster after a certain video game store went out of business in our local strip mall. And last...something not video game related. A quick story...when I was a boy I collected "Archie" comics, not superhero comics. We used to visit my Great Aunt Myrt in Maine. It took 5 hours to get there, and I always dreaded the visit, but I always admired a "Archie" artist proof that she had hanging on her wall. She told me that Archie comic artist Bob Montana used to summer in Maine down the street from her and they became friends. Bob Montana signed this "proof" to her and her husband, and she had it hanging on her wall for almost 60 years until she died. If you look at it up close you can see the pencil marks, ink marks and erasures that he made. When Aunt Myrt died, she left me the picture to enjoy. It still hangs on my office wall.
  10. I'll bite. PM on the way. Just have to hide it from the wifey!
  11. I finally made the commitment yesterday! Can't wait to get it!
