    Thanks, I'm stoked for this one. It's coming down to my seedbox now and hope you feel better soon @eXo!

    No server here either, but I'm on Pleasuredome and seedbox ready. I'll let you guess my username there, but I'll be seeding for a long, long time. I hear ya. I have all the Nintendo consoles from NES to Switch. Only the Switch is hooked up ATM and the son loves his 3DS. He plays that more than the Switch. Had the 2600 as well, but it's long gone. Wish I'd have kept that as well but right now I'm more interested in working vintage computers. As for consoles, the one I'd really like to have back is my Neo-Geo AES. Some of the carts I had for that would be worth a bitcoin now

    Thanks @NLS I'm kicking myself now for selling off all my vintage gear, mostly Atari's, 400, 800, 520ST. But I did have that A500 and an Apple //c. I had always wanted an Apple but they were like 3 times the price of my Atari 8-bits. When I finally got the money together for one I was pretty disappointed in the thing, mostly because the games on it sucked compared to my beloved Atari's, haha. So I dumped it for the Amiga. Wish I still had that Amiga A few months back I bought a used Atari 800 in great shape and added the Ultimate Cart and a Sio2SD for disk emulation so I can load and save ATRs. It's really scratched my retro itch and I'm looking to expand once Christmas is over and I recover from that. The son has me on the hunt for all those new mini arcade machines now.

    Atari's ruled my world But yeah, it was painful at times getting dropped in the middle of a file transfer especially when someone in the house would pick up an extension. I got to where I unplugged the extensions when it was time to transfer files. I had an Amiga 500 but never had a 8-bit Commodore. I've been thinking about picking one up sometime, a C64. Do you still have one NLS? I'm wondering if there's something equal, and equally as good, as the Ultimate Cart I have for my Atari 800 that lets me load up a SD card with roms??

    Back in the day.... Oh man, now you're talking. No C64 here, but I had several 8-bit Atari computers. BBSing from a small town meant calling out anywhere was a long distance charge. And boy did those phone bills rack up fast at 300 baud. Which is why I learned fast how to call the toll free operator where I worked (railroad man back then), give her the number to the BBS I was calling, and set the modem to dial "1" and listen for the tone before putting the handset in the cradle. The "1" was because it was a rotary phone and the shortest route to free, haha. Things are surely better now but I still have good memories of those days

    Damn whippersnapper

    I was drawn in to this with an inbox full of notifications. This sure has been an active thread of late. At any rate, thanks for the update @eXo, my seedbox will be ready and waiting.

  9. I am leaving LaunchBox effective... well right now

    I've been away while I deal with some personal issues so sorry to dig up an old post. But I just want to say wow! What a huge loss to the community.
  10. Destiny 2

    I'm seeing a lot of reviews in progress. Some good, some not so good. I think I'd rather wait until the PC version comes out and then only after I've played the new Mario. But I'm bored now and just might cave in and get it to hold me over for the next 6 weeks or so.
  11. Happy 40th Atari 2600

    Hard to believe it's been 40 years. Like a lot of others it's the system that got me into this hobby way back when. And then 2 years later the Atari 8-bit computers came out and that was the real game changer for me as my 2600 saw less and less of my time and while the A8 more and more. Ah the good old days.
  12. Destiny 2

    Anyone playing Destiny 2? Thoughts?? I'm a little bored and was thinking of picking it up. I played the first game (PS4) and liked it enough, but haven't played in ages. I'd possibly wait and grab the PC version next month but it comes out right before Super Mario Odyssey and I'm sure I'll be busy with that. In the meantime maybe the PS4 version of D2 would keep me busy.
  13. What is rocket launcher? Should I be using it?

    I thought about giving RL a try and can't even get registered there, haha, something about being denied registration because they don't allow spammers. I guess they don't like my VPN, I dunno, but I'm not going to bother.
  14. Steam Summer 2017 Sale

    There's some good stuff there but I'll more than likely pass. I get most of my digital PC games through GOG where it's DRM free which allows me to install on more than one PC. Edit:...I should say install and play on more than one PC. I can think of a few games where the wife and I couldn't be on and playing at the same time.
  15. FM Towns Marty

    Appreciate it @Alexandre. Unfortunately it doesn't work for me. For whatever reason DT refuses to unmount/mount anything unless I click it. Just like before it just sits there until I tell it to unmount/mount so I have to manually mount whatever game I want to run.
