  1. I've been self quarantined since last march, and now I'm coming down with a cold. o_O.

      That sucks!   On the plus side, someone I work with got a cold and it only lasted a day!  So it might be a real lightweight cold.   Fluids, vitamins, and sleep might do the trick and knock it out fast!

      I've been taking Zinc and Quercetin the past few months in the hopes that they might help me avoid random sicknesses. Haven't gotten sick so far, but it might be a coincidence. (I also take D3, C, and other stuff.)

  2. There are so many games on the Atari Age store I would love to buy. I wish there was an option for digital download only. I really don't have the room right now.

      So what you're saying is you don't really have the ROM right now.

      HAaaaaaaaa!

  3. I think I'm on to something here. xD Thanks!
  4. I can't see what type of slot is on the GD cart... is this the correct size?
  5. on the retrohq site, it says for compatible memory cards: "MMC compatible micro memory card" So, I googled and I get this: ...I am assuming the JagGD takes those micro cards like the red SanDisk in the middle. Is that right? Is there a size limit?
  6. Requesting a refund on my Amico founder's edition. I don't need this kind of drama in my life.

      Stop buying pre-orders and you won't have this issue.

      the fact that they delayed the product to get it right is "drama in your life"?

       

      You clearly don't work in any part of product development. Delays happen.

      I never buy on pre-order. I prefer the spontaneity like we had back in the 70's and 80's. Hey let's go get THIS! Yup! So much more fun.

       

  7. Is there any truth to the rumors that they are delaying release until April 2021?
  8. My deepest and sincerest apologies to whomever bought the Flashback portable. Ebay didn't charge enough for shipping. I shipped in a large padded envelop which cost exactly what Ebay charged, but that was not how I intended to ship it. Whenever I tried choosing a package option in paypal, it errored out and wouldn't let me choose anything but first class. They must have changed something because last time I shipped from paypal, it let me pick any shipping option I wanted.
  9. Ebay really screwed me. They didn't charge enough for shipping and then Paypal wouldn't use my checking account to pay the high shipping costs. (flat rate raised to $21! o_O)

      You can't rely on what ebay thinks the s/h will be. You have to put the item(s) in whatever container you want to ship in, then measure the exact weight and dimensions and put that into the shipping area on the listing form then the buyer will have to pay for the full price.  You can buy neat little digital scales for like $10 off ebay. I use mine for baking too (homemade pizza, yum).  Or is it a case of ebay's USPS flat rate prices are not up to date?  I hardly ever ship flat rate. I usually just use a custom size box that's small as possible.

      So...You had a Better experience than I when trying to use ebay's shipping business!  (Heh),...Yeah I tried that mess once...I ended up having to ship it on my money anyway and waited 6 months for a Post Office refund because of ebay's "Convenient shipping labels" (Which weren't right)...Never again, but shipping is always the X Factor unfortunately.  Someday I may try 1138's idea, but it always seems to backfire...

      I've used a scale for years, any time ebay auto fills in information it is always garbage

       

  10. About 10 years ago I was curious about Gameboy Advance programming. I found the Unofficial Programming Guide written by Jonathan S. Harbour, so I printed it and put it into a 3-ring binder. I marked every chapter and then put it on my shelf at home. Here I am all these years later and I'm really not interested in it after all. o_O So before I recycle it, I wanted to know if anyone here wanted it. It weighs over 4 lbs. It will fit in a large flat rate box of which the cost was raised to $21.10. I think there are other options available that are just under $10 depending on where in the US it is going. If you are interested, let me know your zip code and I can try to find some shipping options from USPS . com. I'm only asking for shipping costs, but I would also accept an additional printing fee (completely optional and at your discretion) Kind regards,
  11. Wondering how to put the status updates at the top of the screen on my mobile browser. 🤔

  12. Atari Flashback Portable for sale in Auction central forum. 

  13. I bought 2 of these when they first came out. The one I am selling has been unopened since I bought it. Link to the auction is below. Please feel free to ask me any questions. https://www.ebay.com/itm/193504096659 P.S. I used the ebay app to post this item and for some reason they turned on offers, but that wasn't my intention, I just wanted a simple auction. (doing spring cleaning and the app was the easiest way to post) cheers!
  14. This weekend I watched Reigo King of the Sea Monsters and Raiga God of the Monsters on DvD. If you like daikaiju movies they were pretty good. The second one was hilarious.
