  1. So...I have been cleaning my carts with a 50/50 mix of isopropyl alcohol and distilled water since the mid 90's when I started noticing problems with my NES due to dusty carts. I have since read that I should NOT be using alcohol, because my contact points and carts will melt like the Nazi's faces from Raiders of the Lost Ark. However, my carts still look great, the points look great, and the carts work as new, for all systems after 20+ years of doing this. So what is the story, is it different stokes for different folks, or is there a 100% correct way to do this? I would think cleaning solution would contain alcohol as well, and is more a ploy to get you to buy a "gaming specific" product rather than dirt cheap drugstore alcohol/water. I would also think that soap would be bad because it would leave a film. Just water also strikes me as not ideal because moisture and electronics don't mix. The mix of the alcohol to dry up any remaining water, and clean carbon/dust from the points seems ideal. What is your take, and perhaps if you have one "secret recipe?" I also use a NES and N64 cleaning kit to clean about everything (having cut down the felt for cart slots to various sizes and systems, but as those wear out i'm resorting to cue tips and such. I have also heard a monitor cleaning wipe over a credit card works well for cart slots. Besides the solution, what do you use as cleaning implements? Looking forward to seeing what works for people and learning some new tricks
  2. We have an international treaty not to explore water on other planets in fear of Earth germs and bacteria contamination. Had that treaty since 1967. Alright, call me daft if you want, but I did not know this. All these years of all the Mars missions hitting everywhere BUT the polar caps and me going "Yeh, that's is cool, now how about the caverns or polar caps?" And now to find out we've been purposely avoiding them? That is like on Christmas morning someone saying "See all this cool shit under the tree? Yeh it's there, but don't touch it." So what are our billions in tax dollars going to go for in the indefinite future with NASA and space exploration? Tons of DESERT photos. There might be oceans out there on Titan, or polar caps on Mars, some would say possibly lakes. Or subsurface oceans on the moons of Jupiter and Saturn, but hell if we're going to go there. http://qz.com/512974/if-there-is-liquid-water-on-mars-no-one-not-even-nasa-can-get-anywhere-near-it/ The above also posted on my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/DoctorClu/posts/10154135781303651
