  1. Just a quick Secret Santa check in ... has everyone mailed out their gifts? We only have one week left for shipping. If you have not mailed out yet, please try to do so by tomorrow and send me the tracking number so I can let your recipient know their gift is on the way!
  2. That would be sweet, I don't have any inspector gadget TV episodes and I love that cartoon. Let me know when/if you find them and we can trade something or $$. Thanks!
  3. Received my SDrive MAX a few days ago. I followed the instructions and ... viola! It works beautifully. So far everything is perfect. It took me a minute to make sure I did everything correctly and to learn how to navigate the touch screen menu, but it only took a few minutes to be able to navigate like a pro. I am currently transferring all of my ATR and XEX images to the micro SD card. Thanks Gavin!
  4. Just got my SDMax from Gavin. It works beautifully. I have the 8 bit archives on my old Dell XP machine. I have not fired that thing up in probably over three years and today ... viola! It started without a hitch and I am currently transferring my ATR images to the mini SD. Thanks Gavin!

  5. Sure seems like this year's Secret Santa is a rousing adventure. I am glad everyone is having a good time. It truly is better to give than receive. Thanks to everyone for making me smile when I read this thread.
  6. Thats really fantastic the postal worker was helpful. Many are but unfortunately some are not and probably just transferred from the DMV
  7. Awesome I will definitely keep my eye out wait I should put it back in
  8. I am seriously stoked that you got your AA SS gift BEFORE Christmas this year. I guess customs decided to randomly target someone else this year!
  9. WOW!!! Such a fantastic Secret Santa gifting! Your Secret Santa may reveal themselves at any time (now that's a loaded statement). Bravo to your Secret Santa and thanks to CyranoJ for sharing his experience. Glad you joined in this year and we look forward to having you again next year! HO HO HO!
  10. Here is my SS gift pic I will wait to open the wrapped gifts. The Goobers are absolutely PERFECT and the Kinder Joy looks awesome. Of course I love candy canes as well. The 8 bit manuals are a joy as I did not have either of them. THANK YOU SECRET SANTA (like I don't know who you are LOL) I will open my other gifts around Christmas and post pics!
  11. Very nice. I wish I had the space for a nice 486 setup, there are some excellent DOS games to be played.
  12. I will report back. They offer free shipping and have already marked my order as shipped! It was $16.99 for both movies.
  13. Thanks for the link, I just purchased a set - they have a 2 DVD set with So Dear To My Heart as well. The quality looks fantastic, much better than my Laserdisc/VHS/DVD copy.
  14. Not too bad, looks decent. My VHS (copied to DVD of course) copy is a bit snowy due to age. Yeah, SOTS is actually a good movie. We have a few of the plush toys that were sold at Disneyland back in the 1970s.
  15. anything from the Ultima series? mainly looking for III,V and VI.
  16. I found a VHS copy of the laserdisc in a lot I purchased last year, complete with the Japanese subtitles. Yeah, it won't be out on DVD anytime soon, probably never.
  17. The Secret Santa packages are just rollin' out this year!
  18. What was the first 8-bit game you purchased? Mine was Protector II for my Atari 400 because it came in a 16k cartridge.

      Star Raiders for the 400. Once you figure out the ships are mirroring your movements, it becomes easier.

      I got Hunt the Wumpus and Tombstone City for the TI-99/4A and Radar Rat Race for the VIC-20 about the same time. Didn't own an Atari 8-bit until the late-90's.

      I think Super Mario and Duck Hunt came with my NES.

  20. My wife calls it "flatlining" and she makes the sound.
