  1. 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.


  2. Is there any truth to the rumors that they are delaying release until April 2021?
  3. 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.
  4. 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


  5. 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,
  6. Wondering how to put the status updates at the top of the screen on my mobile browser. 🤔

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

  8. 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!
  9. 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. 

  10. My apologies for the dumb question but Is there a way for me to be notified whenever you do a live stream? I feel like I'm missing out on some stuff. ✌️
  11. MST3K live stream marathon right now. https://www.twitch.tv/mst3k

  12. Happy Birthday March 27 Babies! :D 

  13. Be safe and well. ✌️

  14. I've been really getting into the mystery Case files games from big fish games. they did an exclusive game called the melgrave incident for the Wii. We should see if they can do an exclusive for the Amico. Probably not for lunch, but at some point would be awesome. A game where instead of just one detective you are a team of detectives solving co-op puzzles. This would give them a chance to do incredibly difficult puzzles whenever there are multiple players playing.
