    I was practicing a bit this past week. This is a game I didn't like, until this HSS informed me I was playing it wrong! I didn't realize it wasn't timed based, but missed shot based! Really changed things. All this time I thoughts it was a boring button masher... Here's my best score. Ironically, I ignored trying to keep up with the computer and ended up trouncing the cheater (since he is allowed to miss as much as he wants)! 1142 (Atari GH Vol 2, played on my 3DS)

    Restoring a Big Trak

    I just purchased a Milton Bradley Big Trak on ebay. It was in broken/parts/as-is condition. The price was right, and I thought it would be fun to try and restore it. For those that are unfamiliar -- the Big Trak was an electronically programmable toy vehicle from 1982. More info here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Trak I always wanted one, thanks to commercials like this: I thought I could skip the apple and deliver a beer to my father. Alas, the budget would never allow for this purchase. Until now! Well, the Big Trak arrived yesterday. As advertised, in pretty sad shape. Lots of dirt and grime, a broken battery terminal, and worst of all, a broken front axle. So I immediately got busy. I took apart the wheels and applied some epoxy to that broken axle. Everything removed got washed. Next steps are to take the top off and see what's going on with the electronics. And replace that battery terminal. I've got mixed expectations. I think at the low end, I may end up with a Big Trak that is cosmetically good, but doesn't work. I'd be ok with that...it will look great on a shelf. Best case, I get it fully working. The main body section, not yet opened: Broken battery connector: Fixing Axel Foley. Using a lot of epoxy will make it stronger, and it will still fit in it's slot. Removed parts have been washed.

    Ch...ch...ch...changes

    I have been MIA lately due to some major life changes. My wife and I are separating after 15 years and I just recently moved on my own. This all came as a shock to me. I also took on a promotion at work in late August. Between everything going on I've taken a break from gaming to reflect and heal. I'm in a studio loft downtown, so I'm a bit space challenged and will probably not have a rig for awhile. The new TV doesn't have inputs for legacy connections so I'll be getting a Retrotink for composite and S Video. Will post my rig when it's setup. The one thing I'm really pumped on is the loft (space aside). I can now walk to work and I have some pretty amazing views. I didn't ask for a midlife crises but I'm trying to make the most of it. Wanted to share this sunrise photo from this morning. Happy holidays to the Atari.io community! I'll see you in 2019!

    Autobiography of a Schnook

    Well, friends, the time has come... Autobiography of a Schnook has officially launched! The truth is, though, it launched last week. The preface (or, as some podcasts call it, "episode zero") was released, but I didn't want to make an announcement until the first episode (or "chapter") was available as well, just to get both an introduction and some context out there. The podcast is available on all the major podcast providers...except Apple Podcasts / iTunes...because, well...Apple takes up to two weeks to approve podcasts. Heck, even Google Play only took *hours*! But hey, it's out. What's it about? Well...for years it's been my observation that you can go to a library or book store and find biographies of...famous people...but no biographies of just your average, everyday schnook of whom nobody's ever heard. I figured I should publish an autobiography and call it Autobiography of a Schnook. The reality is...I'd never actually finish it. But eventually it occurred to me: why not do it as a podcast? So...here it is. Despite my two video game podcasts and my frequenting of video game fora, my first love is actually music, so every episode will have a segment called "Music for Schnooks." (Spoiler alert: a future episode will have a "Music for Schnooks" guest many of us have heard of. ) Having said that, I will NOT be posting here every time a new episode is out. In an effort to be as on-topic as possible, after this point I will only post when an episode has a video game topic. I just wanted to announce this podcast for now. I don't know if this podcast will be any kind of success, but I really don't care; I just want to do it, and I invite you all to give it a listen. The home page is schnookpodcast.com. There's a Facebook presence, so you can "like" the page at facebook.com/SchnookPodcast if you do the FB thing. Episode links are below: ----------------- PREFACE: Welcome to the world of a schnook. Sean isn’t anybody rich, famous, heroic, or otherwise remarkable; he’s just a schnook. And he’s here to not only tell his story, but also to refer to himself in the third person. https://www.schnookpodcast.com/audio/Schnook_Preface.mp3 ------------------ CHAPTER 1: In the first chapter of Autobiography of a Schnook, Sean focuses on Thanksgiving-related topics: – A Thanksgiving Curse? – Music For Schnooks: Don’t Meet Your Heroes (Troubled Genius Edition) https://www.schnookpodcast.com/audio/Schnook_Chapter001.mp3

    Basic Fun "Oregon Trail" Handheld

    "The Oregon Trail" handheld game by Basic Fun -- sold at Target. I got one on Black Friday and finally had a chance to play it this week. My overall impression: It's a lot of fun for those who remember the game. My high school had a lab full of Apple II computers that had this game, so I have fond memories. Maybe that's why I like it so much. The screen is very nice, and I like the solid/substantial buttons. My first attempt -- I lost two of five party members, but made it to Oregon. On the down side: It only plays one game. It's too bad they didn't add a few other classic MS-DOS or Apple II games. And the $25 price is way too high for what it is. I got it on BF for $16, and that feels like a much better price point. Here's and LGR review on Youtube too: Anyone else have one of these, and what did YOU think?
