  1. Someone had an amazing find in the UK. An unused Atari STE Discovery Pack in his grandparents' attic. It was still in giftwrap. He or his parents had no idea why it was never gifted. I want, but wife would slaughter me like a pig.

      We will help you, I got your back, I will let her know that you are just keeping it safe for me ;)

  3. Starfleet built a ship of exploration but named it after a series of warships. Nothing says "we come in peace ... but ..." more than that.

  4. Wow! You really find things out later in life. My great Aunt passed away today at 93. I only saw her about 4 times in the previous 40 years but up until the age of 9, I lived not far from her so I would regularly visit. She'd mention that she looked after me when I was a baby. I posted a photo she gave me of me with my grandad outside her house on FB a few weeks ago and another aunt mentioned that I lived there for about 3 months. First time I'd heard of it. Now, my mother's just told me that the pair of us lived there for a couple of months after she gave us a place to stay when my grandmother refused to do so. My mother was pregnant at 15 and had just turned 16 when she had me and, like she said, it was "worse than murder" back then. She and my dad got married a couple of months after I was born.

      Wow, she put the "great" in great aunt!

  5. I have two dead ones I want to bring back to life. Our first computer was a 16k Spectrum. Still have it. Hasn't worked since '83. Another on my to-do list. Sir Clive was a guy ahead of his time in many ways.
  6. Brad raises his prices on low-stock items. Found out that he isn't the only one. Large retail chains do too.

      • but [email protected]@k everything is low stock, NOS, super rare, and vintage... some big store chains liquidate low stock items for pennies on the dollar. clearance, too good to waste, etc.
  7. Ugh! Awake at 5am because I went to bed too early.

      @Tickled_Pink I was looking through my books on the lead you gave on him being in a bed. Are these either one  bro?

      @fdurso224 The Abu Dhabi one's the one. 😂 Bottom one's not showing up. The top one's one I've seen as well. Not sure what it was. All I know is that the book either had a green cover or a red one. 😛

      Excellent. Glad the Aby Dhabi is to your liking and the one you were looking for. Now as the exercise that's not showing up.


      How about now bro. He's in a bed from what was mentioned. Here's the link.





  8. Take a bow, and the trophy and $1.8million home, Emma Raducanu. Kind of makes her A-levels useless, though.

  9. Best online comment found this morning: I wonder if anyone ever chokes on food in the Imperial cafeteria and Vader has to say "That's not me."

  10. Developed a habit of not going to bed until I get a Victory Royale. #healthyliving

  11. When I saw it, I thought, "aren't you going to look stupid?" If you're going to make a point, make it AFTER the deal's been done. Burning your old Ronaldo shirt because of rumours he was moving to City. Dear oh dear. Too funny.

      I don't think he's going anywhere. Not yet, anyway. He has a chance to play alongside Messi.

      Rumours say that Real Madrid are about to make Mbappé official any minute, and that PSG are looking to sign Haaland from Borussia Dortmund for almost as much money as they'll get for the French, but the grapevine could be wrong on all details.

    4. Tickled_Pink


      I can't see it happening. PSG might want Haaland but first, they have to be clear that Dortmund are willing to sell before they let Mbappe go. And if Real had any sense, they'd be signing Haaland themselves for that kind of money. Not only that, but I don't think Real are as good a team as PSG at the moment, so it would be a sideways step at best. If he does go and PSG haven't pushed him out the door to make way for Haaland, he would have been badly advised.

  12. Who's going to have the heart to tell him that buying Atari tokens is not the same as buying Atari? 🤦‍♂️

      Not me.  That is comedy gold right there.

      When I heard this Soulja Boyeee fellow was a Scammer, a Liar, a Cheat, and a Thief...My First Thought was,  Dayemn!  He'd fit right in at the New Version of Atari!

  13. Sure you have, Soulja Boy. Sure you have. 🙄

  14. The lunatics have taken over Edinburgh Castle, citing Article 61 of the Magna Carta and its alleged "legal rebellion" clause. Just one problem. Article 61 is no longer valid and hasn't been since 1216. It also had no "legal rebellion" clause and it only applied to 25 barons elected by other barons. Lesson: be careful what bullshit you choose to believe on social media.

    1. GoldLeader


      I'd like to respond about our lunatics but, no politics.

    2. Tickled_Pink


      Don't worry. I've seen 'em.

  15. New job's currently a bit of a shit-show but hopefully it'll sort itself out.

    1. carlsson


      Once the laxative clings off, hopefully it will be better.

    2. jd_1138


      All jobs are shit-shows due to humans being, um, humans -- fellow employees and customers. I can't wait for our AI overlords. :)


      But seriously, the longer you are there the easier it will get. Kinda sucks being the new kid in town.
