  1. Surely, I'm not alone in inadverdently hitting the "see who reacted like" button first before hitting the actual like button on posts (they both look the same).

      Way to stay on your toes (like a midget at a urinal) for movie references!

  2. I ate Taco Bell once last week.  My body is developing an immunity to it, much like Westley did to iocane powder.

      Sono Italiano (Siciliano) e orgoglioso!  Smarter than Vizzini, though.

  3. Absolutely love BurgerTime Party on the Nintendo Switch and definitely recommend it for BurgerTime fans.

    1. H.E.R.O.

      H.E.R.O.

      Don't have a Switch so didn't know about this one but looks like it's faithful to the original. Last two Burger Time related games I got were Burgertime World Tour on Xbox360 which was...weird. It was Burgertime on a spiral platform. Not good. Then on PC was Heavy Burger which was...well, a big, fat, wet, sloppy kiss to old school Data East arcade fans.

      Need to check out Burgertime Party for sure!

       

      And as for Heavy Burger... I saw that in the Switch eShop and thought it looked hilarious.  Is it a fun game to play?  It looks like a mash-up of classic proportions!

  4. I'm surprised by how much Pac-Man imagery I've noticed in 1950s/60s TV shows lately.

    In the Twilight Zone episode where they meet people on Mars, the lights on the walls inside their ship are shaped like Pac-Man.  In the intro to The Green Hornet, you see a green hornet with red eyeballs and the yellow inside the red are shaped like Pac-Man.

      My avatar came from those TZ lights...taken from that episode many years ago!

  5. "Sweet Dreams are Made of This" came on the radio in the car today.  My 5-year-old niece says "Oh my God, I hate this song!"  I told her it's a great song and she replies, "No, it's not."  I then said, "It's a great song.  Who are you to disagree?"  She just shrugged.

      In the end,  ya like what ya like....And it's funny how your tastes may change over the years ...For the record,  Can't say I've ever taken musical advice from a 5 year old.   I mean,  When I was 5 my cousin had this little (wind up?) "Record Player" that had plastic "Records", but they had weird bumps in the grooves and played things like "Mary had a Little Lamb" or "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" etc., as if it were a music box...The "needle" had tines that rang out the notes like a music box!   If it weren't so Annoying it might have been clever!...

      If she gives me any guff in the future, I'll just tell her that Baby Shark sucks.

  6. My dog Ozzie (golden retriever) was put down today.  His cancer was getting worse and it was time.  When it was done, I felt much worse and much better at the same time; it's an overwhelming moment and a mentally draining day.  I'm okay, though.  I was blessed to have him be a part of my life in his nine years here and will miss him very much.  To the rest of you members who have your own hardships to endure:  my heart goes out to you.  You're not as alone as you may think.

      I'm sorry you had to euthanize him.  It must be harder than having him just die. 

      My last cat who died about 10 years ago was seemingly fine one day and the next day she died.     

  7. Hollywood lacks originality nowadays.  They're always remaking something.  I have an idea for an awesome show.  A TALKING CAR!!!  Justin Bieber plays as a cop who gets shot on the face.  What?  No, I'm not remaking Knight Rider.  Shut up and listen.  Bieber gets shot in the face and is dead; a talking car replaces him and solves all the cases.  See?  Different from Knight Rider.

      Can't wait to see the fan edits where Justin gets shot in the face, screen fades to black while happy music queues, and the credits roll.

      As long as it's all about the car and what's-his-nose is only in the first episode,  I'm in!

      GoldLeader, Bieber is only on screen for 10 seconds and then he's done.  When you use the real thing, you gotta get it right in just one take!

  8. Happy #NationalNudeDay everybody!  Become an AtariAge subscriber today, and maybe there's a chance Albert sends you a special issue magazine with him as the centerfold with a pop-up joystick!  No promises... I'm just saying MAYBE he reads this and runs with the idea!

  9. Saw a nice 1941 Ford coupe in a parking lot when I went to a diner.  Looked like the cars you see in the old mobster movies.  One of the few times I wish I had a phone/camera like today's selfie youngsters.

      You don't carry a cell phone?  Even an old flip phone will have a camera.

      Due to my hearing impairment and the difficulty in clearly hearing things on phones, I just don't carry one.  And since I'm not a part of the selfie craze, I don't carry cameras around either.  There's more photos of Bigfoot than there are of me.  I suppose I should try selling the rare photos of me for big bucks.  😆

      Nice, playing LA Noire right now on Switch so I can dig it!

  10. Anybody feel like giving me $90,000?  No, I won't spend it on this, because I can think of better things to buy!

      Heh, I just made a status about it, too.  Didn't see yours first.  I was saving up for it.  Only needed another $89,999.  lol

  12. Celebrating the 4th by eating the most American of cuisines:  tacos!  Don't look at me like that... I had hot dogs and burgers and steaks earlier this week.  And yeah, it's real tacos made at home, none of that Taco Bell shit.

      @GoldLeader I didn't read the Ataribox thread - or know of its existence - until you pointed it out.  Read the last few pages of it and could only roll my eyes.  So glad I don't participate in crowdfunding or whatever they call it.  Taco Bell facing a tortilla shortage... GOOD!  Hopefully they go out of business.  I tried their tacos once about two months ago and I was disgusted with them; the crap you find in the frozen foods section tastes much better than their "food".

      Tacos are fine for any day of the week, all holidays included.

  14. If records are the OG of CDs, then radio programs are the OG of podcasts.

  15. I see the max file size, but does anybody know how many pixels high and wide a cover photo should be for it to fit in its entirety when you upload it to your profile?

    1. carlsson

      carlsson

      Cover photos will be resized to 100% of the browser width, as far as I can tell. You will get to position the image height wise, and as the height of the cover area remains the same if you resize the browser, it is hard to tell exact dimensions. Use as high resolution image as possible within 0.5 MB, see how much is visible in the area and adjust.

      For the width of my screen, my profile is showing 1319 x 200.

  16. The site's update looks nice but navigation may take some getting used to.  Used to always rely on the "my content" button before to get to topics/forums that I was interested in; that button appears to be gone.

      Albert

      Click on the "Activity" button at the top of the page.  That will open a popup with some choices.  If you click on "Activity Streams", you'll see more as well.  I'm going to clean this up, as it's a bit messy right now.  There's considerably more flexibility with this software to create and name your own "Activity" streams, but it has a (relatively small) learning curve .

      Thanks, Albert!  After choosing "My Activity Streams", it gave me a list and found my recent posts in "Content I posted in".  Obviously, it will take a bit for you to polish up whatever messes you find and for users to become more familiar with the new layout; nevertheless, the site is more visually stunning now.

      I couldn't see the Danger Zone, because my future was so bright...I was wearing my sunglasses at night.

  24. Setting your online status to private on Wii U so friends can't see you're online and join you kind of defeats the purpose of sending friend requests, people.
