      The only thing you can say, is, that she is out of pain. Stay strong, nonochess. I personally believe you will see her again. Even if you don't, be open to the possibility.

    4. JohnnyRockets


      I am so sorry to hear of your loss.  I cannot imagine the pain.


      I am praying for you my friend!

      Yeah, perhaps someone would send him a Raspberry Pi preinstalled with an Apple emulator?

    3. TwentySixHundred


      Im still waiting for that kind hearted individual that is willing to send me a modded NTSC 7800 to Australia. Still hasn't happened

    4. Kiwi


      I checked my stash, but didn't have an apple IIc.  I do have plenty of MacIntosh apples that's waiting to be eaten in the kitchen.  I don't know if they'll make it to you before they start to rot.

  18. Kids didn't rewind tape movies after watching them in 90s, but now I want kids to recharge cellphones before returning them after watching movies. 😂😂😂

    1. AtariWarlord


      As we sow, so shall we reap, lol.

    2. Cobra Kai

      Cobra Kai

      This comment is not directly related to what you're saying, but it made me think of my favorite feature of my VCR, which was if you let it play to the end, it would auto-rewind the movie and pop out the tape all on its own. I often fell asleep watching movies, and would wake up in the morning and have a nicely rewound tape all ready to put away. My VCR did that for me and I didn't even have to ask!

    3. GoldLeader


      And then you're left trying to remember how much of the movie you saw  :lol:

  19. Tons of cheetos and 7up are being processed into Intellivision games 🤓

      Are you making video games for Tommy now?  Make sure that collecting 7-up logo actually get you 7 extra lives.

      The Intellivision game I planned to post tomorrow, won't be posted because 1) the programming hack weekend where I intended to work on it got cancelled due the C word, 2) I never found time elsewhere to work on it and 3) I realized it probably would offend some people.

    4. zylon


      Might turn out better than the ginger ale and animal crackers the original games were made of 🤔

  22. Pretty happy of Aardvark getting the Atari 2019 Award to Best Graphics, and being runner up to Best Game award, won by Galagon. Congrats Champ Games!

      Aardvark is a visual treat. I like watching it, almost as much as playing it. Congratulations to the team on your win. It was nice to see its progression from WIP at 2017 PRGE to CIB game in 2019.👍 

  23. Happy birthday, Al! 😊 👍🏻
