  1. 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,” 😮😢

      Really going to miss The Captain 👨‍✈️

  2.  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.

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

  3. You know it saddens me that SEGA has never matched the quality / quantity / fun that they generated back in the 8-16 bit era. 😐

      I might be interested in purchasing or trading for one of those Dreamcasts if you ever consider letting one go. I bought one the day they came out but let it go many years ago. It's one of the few systems I don't currently have. I was living those VMU Dreams in the late '90s.

      I love Dreamcast. Sadly mine is starting to get finicky about reading discs. It won't play half my games anymore.

      The only Sega hardware I felt was a waste was the Sega CD and 32X add-ons.  Sonic CD was the only Sega CD game I could find in my area worth anything and Star Wars was fun on the 32X.  I never found any of the other games for these that were worth the purchase price.  Well I did find Sol-Fease on the Sega CD which was a fun shooter and had the six pack on CD as well but nothing spectacular.

      Saturn I enjoyed with Daytona, Virtua Cop, Sonic Blast, WipeOut, Tomb Raider, D, Darius, and The Horde.  My only wish is that it could have got the same third party games that PlayStation got.  It might have too if Sega didn't shoot themselves in the foot releasing the system too early.

      Dreamcast I absolutely love!  It was a game changer, underappreciated, undervalued, hardware.  It set standards and started the whole online gaming aspect.  I got a PS2 only after Sega left the hardware part of gaming.  And that was only to get Gran Turismo 3 A Spec.  I supported Dreamcast spiritually.  I wanted it to succeed.  It must have if Sega couldn't keep up with the demands and pre orders.

  4. Loving the new site the more I use it. In my video game art thread I noticed how easy it is to upload multiple images /attachments now. Starting to really see the benefits! Great work JUSTIN and all involved! Atari. io is better than ever! 🍻😘

      THANK YOU ROB!! That means so much coming from you. We're very fortunate to have you as part of the forums. I'm glad you like it! We're all averse to change in some way. I think the more you get used to the new site though the more you'll love it. Uploading is better, personal profiles are really cool, member blogs look awesome, and the "Topics" box on the top right shows shows topics with new unread content, not just "new" topics. This feels like a big leap ahead! 🕹️

      Lots of people are very disappointed in the full line up. Not too sure what they expected. I have my wish list but know it would be too much to license some of the games. Oh well.
