    a chocolate bar

    looks at me and snickers.

  8. Ok, need some help to make an informed decision on this one: "What Jaguar game released to the general public in 2021 had the best packaging (cover art, box, manual, bonus items, label)?" Can those that bought these titles show what came with them? Brains and Brawn *Quality cartridge label/standard cartridge case *Manual JagZombies 2 *Quality box *Color manual *Overlay *Cardboard Insert *Quality cartridge label/standard cartridge case Kings of Edom *cartridge *box *manual The Last Strike *Offered in three different colored cartridge cases *Quality Box *manual *Soundtrack CD ReBOOTed *Different cartridge color cases *Random three of eight possible postcards *full-color box *full-color manual Simone *Atari Jaguar CD: *JagSwag™ Pack #1 -3 are holographic stickers *1 Jaguar logo sticker *1 DO+THE+MATH sticker *1 Jaguar "Pouncing" sticker

  10. Yep. If you want something, you find the means to get it.
  11. Maybe they can watch this auction or a few others on ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/234399959794?hash=item3693538af2:g:u3YAAOSwy1th9aoJ Eventually they'll get a good deal. But it anyone hopes to get a Jaguar for less than $200-$250 they might be a waiting a bit.
  12. I think the only thing that could have saved the Jaguar is if Nintendo, Sega, and Sony spontaneously jumped out of the video game market. Of course, didn't Atari still have other previous systems that were still going during the Jaguar? So even if Atari was the only system on the market Atari would still have been in the way of itself.
  13. Wolfenstein 3D has three save states. Bubsy and Joust saves scores.

    That would cause mass confusion.

      I agree.   I set my weather app to Celcius and have been working on converting in my head.  I get it mostly right.

      We Canadians officially made the switch back in the 1970s and we _still_ used a mixed system. Packaged goods are mostly metric sizes, of course (e.g. milk comes in 1, 2, or 4 litre cartons, but butter comes in 1 lb blocks) and highway distances are measured in kilometers.

       

      Most everything else is mixed:

       

      I have no idea what my height is in centimeters, but in terms of temperature I use Celsius. When I go to the deli, I ask for 1/4 pound of whatever, and the clerk clearly understands my request. Most recipes use cups or tablespoons as a measurement unit.

      As a Canadian I find I use both equally well.  I notice that there is a tendency to use metric for more precise measurements, but imperial for less accurate numbers.

      For example, if someone asked the distance to another town you might say 44 kilometers, but if it were a rough guess you'd say "About 30 miles".

    I asked my friend to go get me a phone book.

    He laughed, called me a dinosaur,

    and handed me his iPhone.

     

    The spider is dead,

    the iPhone screen is cracked,

    and friend son is furious!

  21. For me the big moments have always been around the user group experience. A lot of fun of meeting at the Dallas Infomart, levels of user group meetings, the basement parking lot computer sales. Just mind blowing. That was around 1985. Went to the Dal-ACE computer meetings for my Atari 400 computer. The ST was starting to come out, most of my friends that got the ST wish they never sold their 8-bit Ataris to buy one. Soonafter like me they upgraded to Macs and PCs, I went to college, and I had my Atari 400 in tow for the occasional game in color as my Mac games were all in sharp and clear graphics... but also black and white. After college and getting married around 1999 it was fun going to the last few meetings at the Infomart before the user groups were kicked out of there. I was just amazed to learn there was still an Atari user group there, and to learn all about the Atari Falcon, TT030, the Atari Jaguar, the Atari Lynx... all of which I only passingly heard about since I could swear with no internet at the time I thought Atari dried up around 1991. The Atari user group sadly was winding down, but it was fun getting to learn all about what I'd missed in the last decade and a half while I was doing "life" stuff. And Atari Computing magazine, that just amazed me. Such a professional magazine showing me a world that I thought was long gone. I still look at that cover and strangely still blows my mind with that X-Files cover.

      I met a girl named Eileen once.  She stuck out her hand and said "Hi, Eileen".  To which I said "You do?", and she promptly withdrew her hand and walked away.

      My band has a song called "Step Back Into the Picture" that is about taking a picture at the edge of the Grand Canyon. At the end our singer Ted says "I wish I coulda caught the look on your face!" Before that he says "I don't know what that is at the bottom of the cliff, but it looks a little bit like you."
