      Godspeed and good luck!

      Yeah I'm glad it's not a colonoscopy. I hope for the best outcome. Thanks. :)

    4. guitarmas


      It went well. It was like it never even happened. :)

  2. I am...the emotionless man.

      Will this image make you feel emotion Mr. Emotionless Man?

      You could adapt this Billy Joel song and sing those words you posted instead of the original words:

      No, wait, a gigantic box of broccoli?

    3. pacman000


      That's not a pickup; that's an F1 race car.

    4. guitarmas


      You know me well. Indeed a box of broccoli.


  4. I dropped my Hotpocket.

      Depends where.  My office, where the dog isn't allowed?  Five second rule is safe.  The living room carpet?  No, the hot pocket has enough fur on it that it looks like a tiny dog.

      If it were buttered toast, how often would the butter side land face down? 

    4. GoldLeader


      ^95% of the time LOL.

  5. Just messed up my previous status...

      Yeh High Sierra is good for security updates through November.   Current computer I'm using has Sierra on it (and I have others).   Getting information on a Performa to get new files?   Hmmm...   immediately I would take the hard drive out and use a IDE to USB adaptor to load the drive up with files from another computer.  But that would have to be another Mac ... which you have with the iMac! 


      Long term for that type 2 slot in the 6400 there were apparently USB and Firewire cards which would run fine under System 9.   I found a "6400 Zone" of all things! 





    3. guitarmas


      Thanks! I'll give that a shot. Are there reputable sites to get games like Wolf3d?



    4. doctorclu


      To get Wolf3D?   Not that I'm aware of.   Last site was more a way to get a card to get USB working on the 6400.   No, would like to get Wolf 3D working again myself.   I had a disc of Mac games once, but they were for 68030/68040 Macs.   Might work on PowerPC 603 Macs. 


      As for where on the internet, not sure off hand.

  6. Deciding whether to get an Mac mini or not.

      I've ordered a couple Macs over the years from B&H Photo & Hobby (?), they have pretty good deals some times

      Thank you.

  7. I've been bitten by the Apple bug.

    1. JeremiahK


      You won't be satisfied until every piece of technology you own is an Apple product, or at least, they won't be compatible with anything else anyway.

  8. Snagged me cool freebie today. :D


  9. I just bought a Genesis mini! I really like this. There's a sale at BestBuy for $49.99. I thought it was a steal. Just beat Mega Man 2 on Wily Wars. Next is the first Mega Man. Save states definitely come in handy!

      My kid and I had a blast playing through Monster World IV together! It's a nice mini. I think physically it's the most finely detailed of the mini consoles.

    3. OldSchoolRetroGamer


      Cool, now do the Hakchi mod and add all the games.

    4. Austin


      It's an awesome mini. Great lineup. 👍

  10. Why are my blinkers never in sync with the car in front of me?

    1. Stephen


      For that sweat beat frequency :)

    2. GoldLeader


      I replaced my headlights with strobe lights,  so at night,  I'm the only car that moves.  ~Steven Wright

  11. I don't understand. Why do they insist on killing the BIN?


    1. save2600
    2. masschamber


      because they are going to win that item at well below the normal cost for even though the bin was way lower than it is going to be bid up to

  12. New arcade in town. Retrocade. $10 is a whole day pass for unlimited arcade action.

      Another thing I liked about that was for multi player fighting games and racing games, the winner stayed up...so the line advanced by one person each game, but if ya won, you kept playing :)

      Visited Bishop Cidercade in Dallas this weekend.  Same deal, pay $10 and play games all day.  Games seemed to be well-maintained overall, and the place definitely was getting busier as we were there.  Lots of great cider as well.  :)

    4. Flojomojo


      Is this the place? I am jelly. https://www.ashevilleretrocade.com

  13. Why do our hands look normal and our toes look so strange?

    1. Swami
    2. Mord


      Well in my case it's probably because I rarely see my toes anymore by comparison. *nods*

  14. ...Relaxing with my new friend CBD...

    1. save2600


      I hear it's all the rage! I tried some CBD gummies the other day and all they did was make me feel more irritable than I usually do.  lol

    2. dj_convoy


      I tried some balm (doing the edibles is a little too close to REEFER MADNESS for me) for my chronic (no pun intended) back pain, and I haven't really noticed it helping. I dunno.

  15. Why isn't OS X 10.7 available for download? What's up with this? I'm not paying for a link on Ebay. I need a legit copy...help?

    1. Albert


      I don't see it on their downloads page. To be fair, Apple didn't start distributing OS X electronically until version 10.8.  Also, it wasn't until OS X 10.9 that Apple started giving it away for free.  And OS X 10.7 is seven years old at this point.  So I'm not surprised Apple doesn't have a digital version to download.  Apple still sells it on their site for $19.99: https://www.apple.com/shop/product/D6106Z/A/os-x-lion

    2. guitarmas


      Oh okay. I didn't know that.

      Thanks Albert.

  16. Just got a 1TB ssd for less than $65. They put the wrong price on it and honored it.

  17. Beating you, depression, with my 5 string bass.

      Just an electric.

    3. SoundGammon


      Where would rock music be if we didn't have a bass guitar!

    4. GoldLeader


      I've got a couple of 5 Strings (One is Fretless),and an acoustic/electric 5 string (All with low B Too) :)

      Seriously, what caused it so we can avoid it?

    3. guitarmas


      Thanks everyone for the kind words and concerns. The doctors don't know how it happened. They said it typically happens with scar tissue left over from a previous surgery. The explanation was it was probably there since birth.

      Oh, that's good to know. Remind me to go back in time and stop myself from being born just in case.

  19. Sad to see my Saturn go...

      $150 can be a lot of money depending on your living situation, that's like 2 months of spending money to me. I've spent all day beating myself up over whether or not to sell some beloved things just to get $80.

    3. cybercylon


      Thousands of out of pocket medical expenses can put a damper on things too. I am going to either part with some thing soon or give up other things if I don't do that.

    4. GoldLeader


      Sorry to hear it...

  20. I love me some Saturn...my 2D powerhouse!

    1. boog


      Japanese Saturn is my favorite console

      Did you start eating Broccoli?

    3. TheTIGuy


      I'm still not normal, but I can't seem to figure out why...

    4. StanJr


      you were normal once before?

  22. Well it turns out that I'm not as crazy as I thought i was...

    2. CPUWIZ


      You are crazy, because you don't like broccoli.

    3. GoldLeader


      Don't worry there's always next time.

    4. xucaen


      and how crazy was that?

  23. ....what should I ask for my SNES mini without appearing to be a complete d** bag...

  24. To sell or not to sell (my SNES Classic). That is the question.

    1. Trip2018


      Better to keep it. They're hard to get cheap.

    2. GoldLeader


      I like mine way too much to ever sell! But everything depends on circumstances, motivations, and alternatives...
