    My NES loose cart collection! Join me in some rambling and memories. MaximumRD Published on Jan 9, 2019 YES technically not my first video of 2019 as I say in the video BUT my first "REAL" video as far as I am concerned 😜Just a look at my NES loose cart collection, some memories rambling all off the cuff. PLEASE enjoy and comment on any titles YOU particularly enjoyed or despised or have a interesting history of. Also as always feel free to correct any info, these are fading memories for me and I only go by what I recall off the top of my head.
  2. Some folks seem to be having an issue with the downloaded archive "Atari 2600 VCS ROM Collection" by ROMHUNTER / ATARIMANIA. Here I simply demonstrate the integrity of the currently posted archive. It's seem to download and extract perfectly fine so not sure why they are having an issue. Thanks to ROM HUNTER and his continued work in preservation. GET YOUR LATEST 2600 ROM archive HERE: http://www.atarimania.com/rom_collection_archive_atari_2600_roms.html
  3. An  eerie coincidence to start off 2019 ? All on same day? “3 celebrities dead at the age of 76 and all had nicknames / altar egos — R.I.P. “Mean” Gene Okerlund, “Super Dave” Bob Einstein, and “The Captain” Daryl Dragon,” 😮😢

  4.  I cannot believe it, just after my video the other day and I said I never find anything good in electronic recycling during holidays? Today I found a laptop! Guess someone got a new one for Christmas, in take, great condition, Silver 14 or 15' HP Pavilion! Of course could not log in, don't know specs yet but it came with WINDOWS 8 so already better than the old HP Pavilion I was playing with Linux. Will make a great secondary laptop. Looked it up and running recovery mode on it NOW.

      That's incredible. Why would somebody just throw that out? You know that might be good just for doing MAME and other stuff.

      Considering the timing I suspect someone got a nice new powerful laptop for Xmas 😛 Ah well, fine by me, they literally sat it gently on top with the power supply right beside it. Guess they figured nobody could log in anyway but hey in the wrong hands....fortunately for them instead of bothering to access the hard drive by various methods to bypass the login password or hook up to an externally to look at the files, I just looked up how to access HP RECOVERY and after setting it to original stock install of WIn 8 since it is a valid license I was able to update free to Win 10. Not the fastest CPU but it is still better than the previous old HP laptop I found a few years back (I use that with Linux MINT). There are a lot of older retirees here as well so who knows? Maybe someone bought gramps a new laptop and he just placed the old one in the bin. I figure better I got it than someone else or having it actually end up at the recycle depot 😛

      Let's see.  AMD architecture, Radeon GPU, and 4 GB of RAM?  That sounds like a basic gaming laptop setup.  Would be perfect for some Steam games and definitely MAME.  Amazing what you find in that recycle bin.  Just goes to show you that good things come to those that wait.

    Merry Christmas!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS to the AtariI/O gang !
  8. Just thought I would take a moment before things get a little to busy, as Christmas day rapidly approaches just wanted to see who might respond and if so what exactly are your plans from this point up to New Years Eve? Just curious. We, meaning me and my wife Melissa are ordering Indian Food take out tonight and tomorrow for Christmas Dinner we are going to The Oak & Crue for a special Christmas Eve Dinner we have reserved. We have no children or family visiting so pretty much a overall quiet time for us. We watch Christmas movies and even branched out to a Christmas Anime this year we both enjoyed (Tokyo GodFathers, not specifically Christmas but it turned out to be a heart warming story that took place during the season) and some UK shows doing their Christmas episodes. We previously went and seen The Nut Cracker at our community theater (first time for each of us) and a couple nights ago a 2 man show called O Christmas Tea : A British Comedy, it was wacky and out there but funny and entertaining. Lastly, we will go to a brunch witch is amazing at The El Dorado in town Jan 2nd to celebrate the New Year. So that's us. ANYWAY MERRY CHRISTMAS to all here and all the best in 2019.
  9. Well done and good points made!

      So sad to see this. I had no idea she was 75. I thought she was a bit younger, a contemporary of Ron Howard.
