      Just wasn't known as "edutainment" then. Didn't hear that phrase until the 90's probably. Got a Radio Shack pong unit called TV Scoreboard (came with a light gun even) the Christmas before I "finally" got an Atari 2600.

      technically first video games played at home were on a Sol Terminal 20. I'm a rare breed too. :D

      In the cyberpunk novels, the AIs have "self-restraint" routines to keep them from getting out of hand. But the hackers in the same stories crack them so that also has to be addressed as well. Alexa's not at the same level as SHODAN of course, but best be prepared anyway.

      I hadn't heard the details of that story, but it seems that it too was overblown. Can't say I'm surprised.

  4. Got this awful sore throat. What remedies do you use? I use cough drops and a glass of 7 up mixed with orange juice.

      Tacos, then some play time on the switch. Burritos, then some time with the PS4. Top off the evening with quesadillas and the PC.

      I am mainly using XP. I have a laptop with 10 that has ssen more use lately, and a desktop with 7 that I built six years ago but barely have broken in. Instead I'm using this 12 year old XP machine which has all the software I need.

      I still keep XP around, too. For certain specialized tasks and for certain older pieces of hardware, none of the never versions will do, and I appreciate its small memory footprint.

      I have around on a VM for those odds and ends useful things that never got updated. I certainly don't surf the web with it though.

      Cart slot, Less colors in the color pallet, and 6 single instrument channels

      The atari 2600, 5200, and 7800 consoles have A more colorful pallet, and even though it only has two channels, they have customizable instruments and can be manipulated to have four channels ;).

      Similar can be applied to the c64.

      I don't know if this is a fair comparison but the sega master system was the best of them all.

      Why would you need wifi and a subscription service on the Harmony cart? It doesn't make any sense. An old SD card will hold every game ever made and the Harmony Encore will play them. All the games are right there on the Harmony.

      Hmmm... I wonder if such a service could be built into Stella. Would be interesting to rent new Homebrew games...

      But it could also lead to some awesome exclusives. Not only that but developers would see if their demos are good enough to make into full games

      So, when I was 7, evidently people in arcades were playing: Jet Fighter, Hi-Way, Doctor Pong, Gun Fight, and Pursuit.

  14. I have a crazy story. So my dad had this phone and two weeks later the screen cracked (my dad was helping my sister practice a few minutes befor the game and his phone fell out of his pocket). So my dad ordered a replacement screen from ebay and got it within the next week. He took apart his phone and properly replaced the screen and it worked with no problem for three weeks. Then came the problem(s). One day my dad came home from work telling my mom about how the screen was going crazy or no...

      A friend was going to buy a new Malibu -- a higher trim, but I guess the local Chevy dealer was a douche nozzle so he went to the local Buick dealer and bought a new Buick Regal instead. Same platform/size, powertrain, but it has a longer warranty, better materials, nicer ride. A mid trim Regal is a couple grand cheaper than a high end Malibu and it has the same equipment with better materials and styling. We rented a Buick on a recent vacation, and even though I am only in my mid 40's...

      jd_1138

      I enjoyed the car. It was nice. I think a lot of people avoid Buicks out of the "that's a grandma's car!" vibe, but Buick is the divison that made the Grand National and GNX which could outrun a Corvette in the 1980s.

      Yeah, a large glass of Budweiser is going to be like $5.  :)  They have about 4 beers on draft at our local Red Lobster.  A pitcher of Molson Ice on draft is usually a pretty good deal -- $7 or so.  Pitchers of beer are a great value, but I am usually the only one in our group that drinks beer, but if I order a pitcher then suddenly others will drink it.  lol.  Free beer.

      I agree that it sounds like the solder joints need a reflow. As long as you unplug the console before you start, it should be fine. Check the pins while you're at it to make sure they're not dirty, bent, or broken.
