  4. Atari plan of the week: Renew AA subscription for another year. Done! A voice in the background says: Mission accomplished...

      I'm using Extended Color BASIC 1.1...

       I boot my computer from cassette.

      Hehe, harddisk 1 = Win XP, 32 Bit, harddisk 2 = MS-DOS 6.22, 16 Bit. The old dual-core PC still has a FDC, so I can boot from 3,5" or 5,25" diskette (both floppy types are installed)...




  6. RIP: Max von Sydow.

    1. BydoEmpire


      I used to have his speech as King Osric memorized.  "There comes a time, for a thief.  When the gold looses it's luster.  When the jewels cease to sparkle.  When the throne room becomes a prison... and all that is left is a father's love for his daughter."  RIP.

  7. Happy Birthday Peter Gabriel!

  8. Listen to the wind blow, watch the sun rise...

      And if you don't love me now, you will never love me again; I can still hear you sayin' you will never break the chain.

  9. RIP Mark Hollis (Talk Talk)...

      Sad to hear. I have a GH CD of theirs I listen to once in a while.

      Spirit of Eden and Colour of Spring mean an awful lot to me.

  10. Hmmm, in 1986 or so I bought a JVC tapedeck. They gave a lifetime warranty to their JVC "Sen-Alloy" (sp?) heads. Yesterday my record+play SA head died. Do you think JVC will still replace the head so I can use the tapedeck again ?

      Btw: your head might not (probably not) really be "dead". Check the leads under the head... I'd be willing to bet one of them broke off and just needs to be soldered back on...

      record did not work anymore for more than a year, only playback did; but since yesterday even playback gives only silence, no matter what tape I insert - all other functions (rewind, fforward, etc.) seem still to be working. Does this have to do with the leads under the head ?!?

    4. save2600


      Yes. Check the leads. The other thing I would do is take contact cleaner to all switches inside and out. Heads rarely ever die. The leads (chinsey thin ass wires) going to the heads are sooooo delicate and fragile. Years of a solenoid or manual up/down can break them easily.

  11. listening to Stevie Nicks...

    1. Stephen


      Beautiful lady, killer voice. Saw her in concert both solo and with Fleetwood Mac (yes - Christine McVie was with them too!)

    2. GoldLeader


      Just like the white winged dove...

    3. DZ-Jay


      "Una paloma blanca..." Oh, wait, wrong guy.

  12. GB says "Goodbye EU", EU says "Goodbye UK".

      There goes the stock market. Really can't say more since we can't talk politics.

    3. Tickled_Pink


      That's not how it works. We can't discuss US politics. ;-) We're not as hyper sensitive about issues as out American friends.
