  1. Does Best Buy ever have the Replicade units in stock? Ours has had the tag and spot for about a year, but I've never seen a unit there! I just about cussed out a manager today over that..

    1. GoldLeader


      At least you have a Best Buy!  I had to make do with Circuit City (R. I. P.),  Well technically there's a Best Buy 50 miles from here...That's where I bought my computer ;)


      But I know how ya feel...Been out of the socks I want at WalMart for 3 months, when they finally get some in,  it's ONE PACK!!   (I dunno...Is that the same?   I think it's the same!...)


      Damn those Replicades are a lotta dough on Ebay!

    2. GoldLeader


      Also did you ask if they're getting any more in?  And what did they say?  For the record WalMart told me the day the socks I wanted should be in and they weren't,...But one pack made it to the other location ...ONE!

      I hate asking if they are going to get something in when it's obviously been out of stock for almost a year now. Also, they usually say 'Oh we can order that!' and usually with my work schedule I can't get back up there! Also, driving a van with a dead AC sucks!

  2. That's a good point. The color vector monitors were headaches when they were new! I have heard they can basically be bullet proofed now, but still the cost for an original machine is more than most can even justify. With any luck, this will make a good alternative.
  3. No, no, no. It is the feared pirate Don Karnage!

      HMmmmm...Been a while fer sure...(Could be wrong) 🤔...I'm thinking TaleSpin!  Man I used to love that show when I was in my 20's !  🐻

      Was the NES game any good?

    4. simbalion


      The NES game was lame compared to the platforming style game offered on other systems. Makes me want to slap Capcom silly!

  4. It's so nice trying to teach today's brain-dead, phone addicted youth at work. It seems once the phone is gone, they can't understand anything or function.

      "Do I have to spell it out for you!?!?!".  Yes, you do have to spell it out for them.  That's why emoji were invented.


      You do what I tell you = 😀


      You DON'T listen to me, then this happens = 😠

      Boeing engineers use emoji.✈️

  5. Got Tales of the Gold Monkey on DVD and watched the 'making of' extra. I was rather shocked to find out the show WAS truly a hit and was only cancelled due to ABC playing network politics. No wonder Disney had to bail them out later on!

  6. I looked into a Paypal prepaid card and after looking at the fees, I realized the crap isn't worth the fuss for what little I would use it for. If one can't take cold hard cash, they don't need my business! Geeze...

      I didn't even know that was a thing!

  7. I am waiting for reviews myself and am really hoping they are good or at least acceptable as I REALLY want this machine! I've wanted a Star Wars for years, but they have always been high and after TFA came out the prices went into the stratosphere.
  8. My mind is on my mind.

      Try not to think about it...It'll go away.

  9. Wondered why the electric stove was cooking things too fast and found out. My meter says 125 volts at the regular outlets, so the stove is getting 250!

      It seems like AEP keeps trying to push the voltage up. It already runs at 120 all the time here anymore.

    3. SoundGammon


      The burners require 240v to work. The 120v outlet is only tied to one of the hot lines that carry 120v. That's why stoves and dryers have 3 pronged plug into a special outlet. Check your wall outlets, they should be the same voltage as the 120v outlet on your stove. I once worked at an electronic repair shop and in the evening when all the advertising signs up & down the streets kicked in, voltage would drop down to 100v! Power company had to put in another transformer on the line...

    4. simbalion


      Actually we did check the other outlets in the house to be sure. All were 125 as of yesterday. Not good on vintage electronics either!

  10. My German EMUD T7 radio has a pretty sweet sound.

  11. I don't think it's a good sign that my area Walmarts already have the new Alladin toys on clearance..

      The way I see it, toys are so overpriced when they first hit market anymore. And if they're licensed, even more so. Clearance prices put most of that crap back down to earth, where it belongs.

      They had to bury 40 shipping containers of Jar Jar Binks toys.

  13. Suddenly had the urge to try out the Sly Cooper games and found the first three CIB this evening. I blame Carmelita Fox!

    1. GoldLeader


      Sweet! I know I have at least the first one...(I may have more ;)

  14. Took a quick look at Rotten Tomatoes and Detective Pikachu only gets a 65% critic score, yet the audienc score is 83%! Might see that this evening at our historic theater.

      Seems that way with a lot of movies and TV shows lately: either the fans love it and the critics hate it - or the critics love it but the fans hate it!

      I put more weight in fans opinions than critics. Look at Queen, they got bashed a lot by critics yet are considered one of the greatest of not the greatest band of all time!
