  1. When something just doesn't work and it makes absolutely no sense why...

      Hmmm, I'm pretty sure current Windows is built from 8-bit architecture so I can kinda see where you're comin' from here.

      Are we talkin' about Windows trying to do the base basics of anything here? Or could there be something even more janky?

  6. Blizzard here!  At least a foot and a half of snow,  Wind starting to howl,  Power just flickered, can barely see across the street.  I'm watching the movie Outland (Paused).  I went out on my sunporch and thought I saw movement outside.  I shined my flashlight on the ground, and saw what at first glance looked like footprints in my backyard, right on the other side of the glass...Then Something fell right in front of me!  Turns out, the snow had built up on the power lines and the wind was knocking it off in big chunks, which caused the movement and the prints!    *(I may need some different pants!  LOL)*

  7. Well.

      Oh, that's right. The Beer Ape worship. Did no one else get the memo on that?

  8. Got Robot Tank for the 2600 in the mail. Tried it on my usual 7800s, and didn’t work. Was disappointed. Then I hooked up a third 7800 (modded), and hey it worked like dream! Yay!

      Oof, yeah my first 2600 was clearly a cat's best friend and another one I cracked open both smelt of and was covered in 35 year old soda, it was so sour you'd dry heave from just getting a whiff of your fingers afterward.

  12. Imagine a Pteranodon.     Now think of that sound they make.   So I ask you,  if Pteranodons have been extinct for 85 Million years,   How did you know what sound they make?

  13. Pool boy got an upgrade!

  16. So, after finishing reading Dracula yesterday - with blooddrinking and bloodspurting decaptitations and vampires rotting back to natural death... I today got ‘SMURF (TM) - Resque in Gargamels Castle’(TM) for the Atari 2600...

    😀... and its awesome!

      I think both give off some serious Hyde energy. Perhaps if Jekyll was secretly a serial killer.

  19. So I thought I’d gotten hold of all the highly advanced 2600 titles - Radar Lock, Solaris, Tank Command, Tunnel Runner... only to learn about ‘Robot Tank’... So I hope it’s quality!

  20. Ah crap! Stretched my neck wrong and now I can't turn my head to the left. I have a good feeling about today.

      Just got back from work and nah, she ain't feelin' better. What a time to realize I ain't got any Tylenol at my apartment.

  23. Nearly had a heart attack. Was browsing through ebay, specifically a TRS-80 Model II currently listed for $550. Out of nowhere I end up at the ebay checkout screen with that TRS-80 in it. I absolutely shit myself thinking I'd accidentally pressed "Buy It Now" but turns out I had pressed "Add to Cart".

  24. Gathering Apple II games for the weekend. So far it's Hadron, Epoch, StarDance, and StarMaze.
