Sadly, the only working CRT television I had here completely stopped working. No more Duck Hunt for the forseeable future.

    Keep an eye out on local Goodwill and other stores. While they can't take them you might find free ones sitting around their donation areas. Check Salvation Army as well. Also, do a search for free TVs on Craigslist in your area. That is how I found my little 20" Santo CRT flat screen.

    The 20" Apex I had died a while back and I didn't know of a hidden feature it had. It could switch between 50 & 60 Hz as needed. So, now, most of the ST games I have and one 2600 game do not work on the Sanyo model I have now. The 2600 game is Secret Quest.

The eternal struggle: I have a job to buy videogames, but don't have time to play video games due to job.

    He went too young.

    Here's the thing about Harry Anderson. He was funny in a very sweet and kind way. Not an ounce of meanness in his public persona. And that's a rarity. Especially in comedy.

    I grew up watching Night Court. Always liked Harry. Sad to hear another good one gone.

    That's pretty exciting! Are you getting the VGA mod too?

    Nope. May as well just play on an emulator if you want a bigger screen IMO. I think the VGA mod would be really worthwhile for those who make Lynx review videos.

    The mod includes a complete re-cap job too.
