  1. Indeed, I had a little black box with composite cable in and out, in from playback VCR and out to recording VCR (audio cable passed directly between machines) known as a Macro-eliminator it was pretty much plug and play and did exactly as described. i would rent all the latest hit movies and copy away. 😎Good times. It was just like the one pictured below.
  2. Well, finally it's cold enough even during the day so the snow is sticking around and it's still coming down, seems like a good time for a electronics recycling bin check!

  4. Let me know how the weather is where you live comment and give details. This is what I awoke too so I just made a quick video. I live in Kelowna BC. Canada. Surprisingly no, this is not typical for us at least not in this part of Canada. Despite this expecting high of 6c / 42f tomorrow!
  5. Currently am using a Geforce 1060 6 gb, no complaints here. Honestly I am an Nvidia guy so cannot say much about ATI. Either way if you go Nvidia you should get a 1050ti minimum, keep in mind whenever a game lists minimum specs that means it will load and run but wont necessarily be that enjoyable / playable so always go above to give yourself a little more headroom, that will save you much frustration. Personally I tend to just go by recommended specs as the "minimum".
  6. We watched and absolutely love the series, it just got better every episode and Jon Favreau has already announced season 2 for fall 2020 woo hoo! Sure there's a lot of fan service and I certainly don't mind that but so many call backs to series characters, honestly this is the most Star Wars feeling thing Disney has put out.
  7. 😮😎Recently I had the luck of winning a very special prize from YouTuber Blaine Locklair ! Check out Blaine's Channel for the best in Restoration, Repairs and Mods HERE: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCc16nxCRvhba37wzU2eVS2Q !!!! WARNING !!!! Expect my usual babbling and going off in tangents during my video, I do eventually get around to the "unveiling" but if you want to get right to that skip to around the 6 min 40 sec mark. I was so excited, happy and grateful when Blaine messaged to inform me of winning this prize which is not only an amazing addition to my gaming collection but actually something that I have never played let alone owned.
  8. Merry Christmas to you and everyone in the wonderful community ! As the 25th approaches the chaos of the holiday's tend to overwhelm this introvert but I appreciate our community and hope everyone has a great one and all the best in.....wow....2020 ! 🎁❄🎅🎄🍻
  9. Quick Electronics Bin check on a rainy December day! Forecast called for much snow, yes I am in Canada but here in the Okanagan Valley it's not always cold and snowy so instead seems we are getting rain instead. Well I will go check the bin anyways!

  12. My FIRST PS3 🤔If all goes as planned  within a couple weeks I will be getting my first ever PlayStation 3, a slim series model with Custom Firmware even. I had the OG PlayStation and PS2 and loved them but was put off of PS3 launch price and somehow it just slipped by me since. I won this one in a contest though much to my surprise, not sure what I can do with the Jailbreak custom firmware besides load games to hard drive, I've no interest in online play with others or if I need and PSN account to do anything with it or what is risk of messing up the custom firmware etc? All new to me, I watched a video on the process of how it was modded, frankly not hard but many tedious steps involved, now I just want to get the most out of it but it's all new to me. Anyway I intend to research and learn as much as I can, might post back here in a thread for help or suggestions once I have received and set it up.

      That episode "Charlie X" is one of my favorites.  I've always thought Charlie's benefactors and the Trelaine aliens are probably "Q".

  14. Jabbering on about first snowfall, decorations, secure PC disposal. Just off the top of my head, unplanned, decided to take video while I do my rounds out in the first real snowfall here this winter. Somehow I get onto the topic of PC security and secure disposal of computers. NOTE: a resident approaches near the end hence my change in attitude.
  15. Just a heads up from the developer : ** DECEMBER 1 2019 - ROMS HAVE BEEN UPDATED TO RELEASE CANDIDATE 3 ** So for those enjoying it go grab the latest release in the original post link as he worked on some reported glitches 😉
  16. NOT MINE ! I thought those here who do not visit Atariage may not be aware of this release. I think this game looks and form the description SOUNDS pretty damn good so if you are interested in getting your hands on the ROM to check it out yourself here is a link to the source thread over on AA. https://atariage.com/forums/topic/298966-the-end-2600-new-homebrew-game/ Below I have pasted the screen shot as well as the description from the creators post HOWEVER I have not linked the roms, I think it only fair if you want to get those at the very least you can go to the original thread to obtain the roms and give a LIKE or comment some appreciation. 😉😎 as such things should be encouraged. --- PASTED FROM SOURCE -- Hello all ! Here is a new homebrew game I made for the Atari 2600 that I named THE END 2600. It is based on the 1980 Konami version of the arcade game THE END. Attached you will find the release candidate #1 of this game in NTSC and PAL60 versions. OBJECTIVE: To destroy aliens attempting to steal bricks from your defense bases. The aliens will arrange stolen bricks to spell out "END" at the top of the screen. You start the game with 3 spaceships. An extra ship will be awarded when you reach 5,000 points. Use your joystick to move your spaceship left of right and press the button to fire to the aliens. Game is over when all your spaceships are destroyed or "END" is spelled out by the aliens. THE POINTS: Each alien destroyed scores 40, 60 or 100 points. Destroying aliens carrying a stolen brick scores double. Destroying MotherShip scores 10 to 100 points plus the same amount awarded for each brick needed to spell out "END" ANOTHER DETAILS: Each level is represented by a "wave". Every 5 "waves", the MotherShip will come down to attack your spaceship. If you destroy it, a "round" of 5 "waves" will be completed. When a new "round" begins, the aliens with have to start spelling "END" all over again. The game is complete and fully playable. It has 40 levels and is fast and very challenging. The game is not exactly in graphics as the arcade version but the gameplay is. Also I have added some animations that are not in the arcade. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it ! Please tell me your feedback about the game and let me know if the game is too easy or too hard or if you find any bugs in the game. Let's see those high scores !! RaymanC

  18. Good long life! RIP ! Virginia Leith, Female Lead in Stanley Kubrick’s First Film, Dies at 94


    One of her best-known roles in recent years was in Joseph Green’s 1962 low-budget science fiction cult classic “The Brain That Wouldn’t Die,” in which she played the disembodied head of the main character’s fiancee, which he keeps alive after discovering how to keep human body parts from dying.
