  1. 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:

    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. :D

    What's the deal with that anyway? I picked up a new Washer and Dryer pretty recently and while shopping around for them there were like Samsung models with a freaking full-color LCD screen on it and like cameras of the wash. Like...really? Do we really need this?

    Good choice with the Jeff quote, Zombeaver. :)

    It is getting insane, that's for sure.  Saw a fridge in Home Depot the other day for $4500.  You could buy a lot of other cool stuff if ya got the $500 one instead. :D

    I love that the computer is the size of a vending machine it makes me laugh considering I rode to the shore today and watched Plex and played games on my Windows tablet while driving there and this just puts perspective on how far things have come. I imagine my tablets 16GB drive is bigger than what ever that computer used. Is that things so old that it predates the hard drive?

    Yup, it had a hard-drive, but it wasn't big (base configuration was a 5MB model).  If ya wanted some 'serious' storage, ya added on a washing machine-sized peripheral, such as an RP06 (178MB).  When I was a Computer Operator, I used those a lot to do Backups.

  4. Most of ya probably already know about this, but if not, it's looks as if it might be somewhat useful. [Click on the blurb below] TOSEC-The-Old-School-Emulation-Center.jpg There's even an emulator for this! (I was weaned on Digital's PDP line. I initailly used paper-tape, too, similar to what's shown in the photo Laugh). DEC-PDP-12.jpg
  5. I had heard about that, but hadn't read the entire story - thanks for the Link. It actually surprises me those Torrent Sites stay up as long as they do. It just seems as if it would be so easy to track them down. I didn't think you could do squat on the Internet without it being logged somewhere. Even if you're runnin' something like PeerBlock, it seems you're still traceable, if they look hard enough. FWIW, I don't have a Facebook account, and I'm keeping it that way. Wink
  6. There's a small lake (Prospect) in the amazing park I live near. There's a shit-load of gangster lookin' folks that hang-out there. I snapped a shot of Moe (a really nice guy) with his Ride (sporting 26" wheels) this morning. His girlfriend was over at a nearby picnic table token' on a joint Smile: Moe-Car-1a-1.jpg
  7. How could I have forgotten a Ken Block video? Confused (Driving starts about a minute in). This one's a bit older, but I always liked it. The new ones are really crazy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TshFWSsrn8
