  1. This may be the answer to my Intellivision Emulation Controller difficulties: Intellivision Ultimate PC Interface. Does anyone have any experience with this thing?
  2. Most of ya have probably already checked it out, but some good deals (I think). I snagged Grim Fandango Remastered for $2.99.
  3. NAOS QG Mouse - it has a heart-rate monitor! Awesome! Does battling horrific monsters cause you stress? Find out. It'd be fun (maybe) to see how my heart-rate spikes when I'm having a serious issue with Windows, too.

    Planet Coaster

    If I'm recalling it correctly, Jason might be interested in this one: Planet Coaster
  5. Over 2K? Wow! What are you going to do with them? Could be one of those crazy sales on eBay. Some members of this Forum might be interested in a few of them. To me, one of the things about a 'collection', is having it on display, and to be admired, or even cherished to some extent, perhaps. Therefore, I can certainly appreciate your dream of the wall-to-wall setup. But, you're in the Digital Age now, so your choice of LaunchBox was great, IMHO. LaunchBox/BigBox is suprelative (whoa, I haven't used that word for a long time ) for a digital (aka, non-tactile) collection, in terms of being able to 'display' it, among many other attributes. Good luck on the addiction. I suspect many Forum members are similar addicts.
  6. Nice! I always did like 'street justice'. Hey, that's probably why I liked the movie, Death Wish (I only saw the original), so much.
  7. In the spirit of miscellaneousness, check this out. Can you believe how close this asshole parked to my car (mine's on the right)? I had to leave before they returned, so I never got to confront them. Argh! If there hadn't been security cameras at the school across the street, I probably would've totaled that car with a hammer!
  8. Azuma Hikari, is a holographic character who 'lives' in the Gatebox. Check it out. P.S. Here's a Link to the Website
  9. Thanks, DOS. Suprisingly, it all went fairly well - the dreaded cast has been removed, so I can drive and take showers again, etc. P.S. I'm having Video Card issues. Where do you think would be the best place/Forum/Topic for me to post a plea for help?
  10. I finally got around to watching Captain America: Civil War. I liked it. I pretty much like all the Marvel flicks. Anyone planning on going to see Assassin's Creed next week? I might watch Warcraft or Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice tonight, but as DOS76, I've been doing more 'series' binge-watching, as well. Might be a long night as I gotta start prepin' for a colonoscopy tomorrow. Most of ya are probably way too young to be needing colonoscopies, but the 'prep' is 'crappy'. I wish I woulda remembered to get some Depends. I'm supposed to get my cast off tomorrow, too.

    Religion

    As it so happens, I'm well versed in theology (well, not really that much ), and The Church of the FSM cannot be overlooked!
  12. For you purveyors of Peta-Bytes, this may interest you, although it's clearly aimed at businesses that need to migrate insane amounts of data. AWS Snowball (an Amazon Web Service). It’s long been known that the fastest data transfer rate can be physical media delivered by courier. Amazon has taken this to an extreme, by announcing Snowmobile, an 18-wheeler semi-trailer truck that will carry 100 petabytes (100PB) in a shipping container from the customer premises for upload to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud, with a crap-load of Snowballs in the back of the truck.
  13. Well, if you haven't, it's bad-ass, non-volatile memory technology. Up to 1000x faster and more durable than NAND, and 10x the density of DRAM. Check out the demo of Rob Crooke (Senior VP and GM of Intel's Non-Volatile Memory Solutions Group) transferring a file at nearly 2GB/s! using 3D XPoint-based Optane SSDs. 2GB/second?!?! Nice! If you've read any of my stuff in the past, you'll know I love hardware advancements. I suspect this one (2GB/s transfer speeds) might give our prestigious contributor, DOS76, a Nerdgasm, as he would phrase it.
  14. This is one of those 'Real Escape' games. They have them here (which I'm planning to try soon), but not with the Zelda theme. Defenders of the Triforce
  15. Arcade Spare Parts has a lot of buttons to choose from. Ebay, as well.
  16. Near 600ft basketball shot (off the top of a dam)! Shorter Video Longer Video (nice cinematography)
  17. Well, the PS4 Slim (500GB) w/Uncharted 4 is $249 on Amazon today, so I might go for it.
  18. Besides being awesome in general, you're also a 'master quipper'?
  19. MaximumPC's 2016 Dream Machine - Parts were $12,457! If only 'money were no object'... DreamParts.pdf
  20. Ya, I think that's good advice. Plus, since I'm feebly trying to "downsize", the Slim will save me a few cubic inches.
  21. Thanks, DOS76. I'm too old for this crap. A PS4 should lift my spirits, though. I'm currently leanin' towards the Slim. Whadda you think? The Pro is $100 more and somewhat larger, although it has twice the HDD space, and few extra features I don't need.
  22. Surprisingly, I couldn't find any recent Posts for the PS4 Slim or Pro (the Pro is available on Amazon, at no discount, for $399). Since it's time to think about a Christmas present for myself, the PS4 Slim or Pro may be in my future, as I'm still runnin' a PS3. Research is tellin' me, if I'm not that concerned with 4K (and a Digital Audio Output), then just go with the Slim. Here's a couple of comparisons: in Forbes and in DigitalSpy P.S. It's good to be back, after my extended absence. Among other distractions, was my 2013 car getting totaled 2 months after I paid it off, numerous bike wrecks, broken leg that I can't put weight on (still wearing that cast), etc. Friends tell me I'm lucky to be alive, but I'm not so sure.
  23. Why in the Hell are my sentences wrapping with an extra space between the lines? Argh!
