  1. So there is Lead in solder?  That can't be great to breath in.  Any modders turn to violent crime yet?

      Anyone can buy leaded or lead-free (in the US at least).  although the lead-free stuff doesn't work as well, imo.  No violent crimes for me yet.

  2. Went to pay off the last $600 on my Xmas layaway today but it someone paid it for me already :-o didnt believe it till the cashier showed me the computer screen. There are still good people out there! Thank you whoever you are and bless you!

  3. How do you pronounce HDMI? I've been saying hay-duh-mee

  4. 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.

  5. Burger King's Whopper Jr. is hands-down the best burger in fast food history.

      IMO Red Robin makes the best burgers. They don't have a drive-through, so I don't know if they qualify as fast food

  7. I'm listening to old time radio. It's amazing how many commercials are outright lies. For example, Camel cigarettes are less irritating to your nose and throat. Drinking Pepsi helps with digestion problems.

  12. My gut was angry all damned night. Rumbling. And my farts are wet. When they evaporate they smell like the Hibachi grill buffet I had 2x yesterday. So I had some McDonalds and 1/3rd cup of Cayenne Pepper to flush the stuff out. Dear Lord! It’s like The Battle of Blowaloada!

  13. Whats the easier way to retrobrite these days? You just put the plastics in a bag with hydrogen peroxide and leave it out in the sun for 3-4 hours right?

      I would avoid putting them out in the hot summer sun for too long. If I would do it again, I would try it with indirect sunlight. My experience of what can go wrong here: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/269859-some-things-were-not-meant-to-be-retrobrighted/#entry3845350

  15. There's a new hack for the Playstation 3, making it open to custom firmware! Which you'll use for completely legal, copyright-respectful applications, of course. Heh. http://kiblitzing.blogspot.com/2017/11/the-great-ps3-jailbreak.html

  17. Why does every router I get just decide to stop working out of the blue every few months? Nothing like spending 2 hours of your morning as "IT guy." I still don't know what's wrong.

      I got tired of the same thing and purchased a small form factor PC to use as a router. It runs linux and has been rock solid for 2 years now. No reboots, except for software updates.
