      Does the solder wick nicely onto at least part of the soldering iron tip?

      Why not something just slightly less modern, such as Mercedes, or Lexus.

    There is likely a good way to go. Maybe two weeks but I'd say I am now quite confident that I am going to come through this!

    Thanks for your support guys. I'm going to do something nice to eat.

     

    Did you know that Switzerland has a list of animals that it is illegal to have only one of, you have to have a pair. They have done this so they don't die of loneliness. How wonderful is that ?

  6. Made a new page: When Does a New Decade Start?

      The '80's is obviously 1980 to 1989. That is a 10 year span, which one could call a decade - but you could also call 1984-1993 a decade.

      So, we're not in the "tens" anymore... but we're still in the decade that includes 2011 to 2020 - the AD years start at 1 - the year before that was 1 BC, not 0. The first decade in AD was 1-10, not 0-9.

  8. Boeing made the decision to use only 1 sensor for MCAS. A marketing decision. Because using 2 sensors would have raised the importance of the system enough to have to recertify and require Level D training. Expensive simulator time. Further more, MCAS forces the nose down for 10 seconds, then allows 5 seconds for "recovery" before it starts again.

      So basically the sump pump system in my house is a better system.

      Isn't it annoying when people don't get the connection? - I had to google it - I blame my bad movie-memory

  13. But don't worry folks, big companies who have spent millions of dollars lobbying to be able to block, slowdown, or prioritize any web traffic, are assuring their customers that they do not intend to block, slowdown, or prioritize any web traffic. Also, the shark lobby says they don't intend to eat people even though they spent millions lobbying to have their mouths reclassified as sleeping bags.

      Exactly - I haven't replied elsewhere, but that's what I would have said, minus the sharks and sleeping bags.

      I remember it well - I'm a pretty big fan, though - catchy, with good lyrics.

      Nope, just one TV - it looked better than my TV - the colors were vibrant

  16. Dear AtariAge, you'll never believe what happened to me the other day!

  17. Right now, according to my AtariAge profile, I have 2600 "Likes". Seems appropriate.

  19. Quick question: let's say you had the chance to set up three or four Atari 2600 systems for a group of college students who've never played the 2600 before. You want to give them some good "party games" that they can pick up fairly quickly and play in groups of two to four. Other than Warlords, Indy 500, and Track and Field, which games would you pick?

      Sorry, not details here, but definitely some paddle games.
