      Idiots have been shooting them off before July even started. I could understand people wanting to shoot them off on July 4, but June 30? It's stupid. And it scares my dog just so people can go "ooh, shiny things!"

      A.) Virus, don't leave the house.

      B.) Illegal here.

      The founding fathers wanted us to celebrate, to drink beer and blow shit up!  Time to be patriotic...The city is putting on one, actually, but no one allowed in the stands...Just drive wherever, or ride your bike,  and look up!


      That said, I've been hearing them for days now (And maybe small arms fire from the base)...I live a mile or 2 from an Air Force Base...


      2 days ago I delivered food to workers at 1 of the 4 Fireworks stores out at the Bison ranch and it was madness...Every one of them had full parking lots, crowds of people, lots of Colorado plates where they don't sell them...And this was about 6PM on a Thursday...

      " I relate to you, Ralph. When I hit bottom, I was crushing man's skull like sparrow's egg, between my thighs... and I think, why you have to be so bad, Zangief? Why can't you be more like good guy? Then I have moment of clarity... if Zangief is good guy, who will crush man's skull like sparrow's eggs between thighs? And I say, Zangief you are bad guy, but this does not mean you are *bad* guy. "

  3. Has anyone bought this joystick for their arcade rig? GRS Tron Arcade flight stick. It is USB and lights up. https://www.amazon.com/GRS-Tron-Arcade-Flight-Stick/dp/B07X8DZ344/ref=pd_sbs_21_1/140-7953108-5153065?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B07X8DZ344&pd_rd_r=7d763634-4d07-4ce2-9e7a-a9ebe9c941af&pd_rd_w=vT2LJ&pd_rd_wg=04a0J&pf_rd_p=e20a7044-dca9-4b2c-8da8-05b176efe6fb&pf_rd_r=D3RTWZK982E8T6JNB7BZ&psc=1&refRID=D3RTWZK982E8T6JNB7BZ

      Canceled due to weather. 

  5. How about a unmodified 2 port system? Same problem right? I wish I could find that link.
  6. I miss ATASCII movies on BBS. https://vimeo.com/94431879
  7. It is possible. I remember finding a site that sells 5200 USB power supplies. I just can't find it anymore.
  8. May the 4th be with you.

      My son and his friends have been setting up Lego Star Wars dioramas as a surprise for a class Zoom meeting they have this afternoon.

    2. MrMaddog


      May the 4th is the day I try to get my collection of old Star Wars games to work on my modern PC.


      I'd rather sit through Last Jedi & Episode 1 again.... :P

  9. Due to Covid-19, Amazon is giving priority to items people need the most. Toilet paper takes a month but Echo Dots and Kindle Fires are next day.

      I've found most things I've been ordering from Amazon lately have beaten their estimated ship dates.

    3. MrMaddog


      I'm sure all the striking...I mean fired workers will be pleased about that bit of news...

    4. GoldLeader


      Oder a Kindle and ask Amazon if the packing paper is flushable :lol:


      (True story)   I actually did freak out when the shortage started (Seems almost over now, though) and I ordered TP from Amazon.   Lessee, I ordered it March 15th and it should be here on April 24th...So about 11 days from now.  Hmmmm....

  10. How much weight have you gained during our captivity?

      None, continuing with almost exactly the same eating as before.  Intermittent fasting 16-20h/day, tracking calories, etc. I haven't been able to go to the gym at all, so I've been running more and more consistently than before so that's probably brought weight down a little bit.  Hard to say after only a few weeks, there's a lot of fluctuation day-to-day.

    3. ls650


      No weight gain or loss.  I have been wearing a steptracker since November, and always make sure to get at least 8000 steps a day in, although lately I've been averaging 10000.  I've also kept an eye on what I'm eating, and that hasn't changed much at all.


      Where I live there is no "shelter in place" type order, but folks are asked to stay home and avoid others.  The slogan is "Stay Active but Stay Apart", and folks are told if you need to get outside for a walk or bike ride, make sure to stay a minimum of 2 meters from anyone else, and more if possible.

    4. Tempest


      About 5 or so pounds since I can't do my daily walk.  I mean I *could* go walking in my neighborhood but there are too many people out there and since I'm working from home I'm not feeling the need to get away from my desk like I do at work.


  11. So no one in the mood for April Fools Day jokes?

    1. jaybird3rd


      I'm never in the mood for April Fools' Day jokes.  It's my least-favorite holiday of the year, with the possible exception of Valentine's Day.

    2. AAA177


      Is the news item I just read about an upcoming Pong RPG an April Fool joke? 

  12. Has your collecting habits changed due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak? Do you still search for games? Do you disinfect anything you buy? Do you do it exclusively online now. Are you worried about saving your money for long term needs?
  13. The Disneyland Resort just announced they are closing on March 14th to at least the end of the month. Hotels will close monday March 16th until further notice. Disney World is still open as of right now.
