  1. Another earthquake just hit about two minutes ago. It's still kind of going right now.

      Felt it pretty strongly here (Santa Clarita). Plus an aftershock right on its heels.

      We were getting kind of sea sick.

      Same here - very weird sensation. Still a little queasy. Feels like aftershocks are still wobbling my apartment.

  2. 6.4 earthquake in Ridgecrest California.

      Didn't feel it up here. Heard it was felt in Vegas though.

  3. Anyone shooting off illegal fireworks tomorrow?

    1. GoldLeader


      It's not illegal here,...Well OK it's technically illegal within city limits...Not that they worry about it on July 4th...Here in WY we actually have more fireworks stands than Starbucks!    We also have more fireworks stands than Arby's, Taco Bells, Burger Kings, KFCs, Taco John's or Wendy's...

      Hmmmm,  I thought a bunch of people would simply write YES!

  4. The other thread said it should be any week now and the regular release in late August.

      And a NES game that looks like dog doo.

      Have to seek that game out.


      As for the segment that was cool.   First off, I've always thought that Romunlan was a hottie.  And the Earth ambassador was David Warren... how did I not notice that before?

      David Warner. What a hammy hack he was! Though I suppose he was good at picking high-paying jobs. He was THE evil cinematic British villain for a while there. 

  7. How hard is it to keep a simple SQL server running?

      That depends on how busy it is, and on the applications using it.

    3. Flojomojo


      Kinda depends who's asking. If it's a client, you'll need many hours a day including overtime. If it's for fun/yourself, yeah, just set it and forget it! Make backups.

      Running - not so hard.  Performance might be a different story.

      MySQL is probably a little bit easier than MS SQL, but if you want to fhck with any database system, just go changing data on a massive scale and see what happens.  If you update 70% of the rows (or insert or delete) you will likely get some unexpected behavior, but I'd stop short of saying that it would stop "running."  Of course, if you were to delete a table critical to a specific application, well that makes for an exciting Friday morning.

  8. Or you just buy Atari Writer 80 with an XEP80 interface module.
  9. Just wondering if the purchase subscriber and the store are working? Should I hold off a couple of weeks for things to settle down on the new software?
  10. Good. Mine should come just before my birthday. 🎂
  11. With the new forum, may we request a new user name or are we stuck with the current one forever still?
  12. So does this mean that if you didn't spend the extra $100 for early adopter that you have to wait six more months or will they be shipped shortly after the early adopters get theirs?
  13. Arcade 1up - Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi.

  14. They are also doing a four player Turtles in Time and two player Marvel Super Heros cabinet. http://www.cooltoyreview.com/story/front/Arcade1Up_New_Cabinets_Revealed_at_E3_184331.asp First, we are finally getting a TMNT cabinet, featuring the artwork of the original arcade hit. This one will contain the original '80's beat-em up and the sequel, "Turtles in Time." What's even more amazing is this cabinet is extra wide to accommodate for four-player play. Expect this to cost a little more as some outlets are pricing in the $349 range. This should be available in October. No word on if this is an exclusive but we hope it is wide release. Second, we are getting a Marvel cabinet. This one includes Marvel Super Heroes, X-Men: Children of the Atom, and the Punisher. Expect this to come in at the standard $299 price point, and also available in November. Again no word on exclusivity but we will keep you informed on more details as they emerge.
