    So rather than attach a Patreon to my channel or turn the "join" button on I have started a Discord Server thing. The idea is to offer some advantages folks get from the other services without a stupid pay wall. Things like being able to vote on or suggest topics, participate in contests/giveaways, early access to videos and anything else I think of. Still figuring out what to do with it. So if you are subbed to my channel, feel free to join. Right now we are talking about the latest HSSC and @btbfilms76 paddle controller giveaway.

    379 tickets! Can you guess what I was able to get with them? A small plastic shark that lights up, except the light up part didn’t work, and a jolly rancher 😯  nonetheless I had fun in the Universal arcade!

    I got laid off today, the first time in my career. When AT&T merged a bunch of companies (HBO, Turner, etc.) under the former Time Warner corp umbrella into a single entity WarnerMedia, we knew the new company would look to consolidate. It was a bit of a surprise given where I was situated organizationally, but a bunch of us were given pink slips. Because I got rolled up in a broad organizational move, it’s easy not to take this personally, so I’m glad for that. I had seen some friends struggle emotionally before. 
    My wife recently got a new job, and she’s still within the new employee benefits enrollment window, so at least I don’t have to worry about getting a new job quickly for health insurance reasons. For the first time, I won’t be the primary coverage member 🙂 Lots of new firsts.
    Before folks feel too sorry for me, I am in a good position. First, I am grateful for an extremely stable career experience so far. I’ve experienced my share of company re-org and changes and always landed into a great place. The fact that this is my first involuntary job change is quite the feat in a 23 year career. Second, I’m also grateful that we will be given a nice severance package to ease the transition into the next gig. Third, I’m in an industry that is very robust and still hiring. And lastly and most importantly, God is good, and He is the Shepherd of my life. In Him, I find peace and rest.
    I share this news here because I like the I/O community and wanted to open up more on a personal level to foster better relationships. Also, I’ll have more time to spend on the monthly challenge, so you have been warned 🕹🕹🤣🤣

    FINALLY after like a year, cut my hair....I didn't go anywhere, got nice Remington hair clippers, didn't even use an attachment, did it all myself with the bare clippers right down, all even, took like maybe 10 minutes? OMG FEELS SOOOO MUCH BETTER! ALL THAT HAIR fit in a single little sandwich baggy, funny how hair compresses like that. Now that I have the clippers though I do not plan to EVER let it get that long again! My wife loves my hair like this.....she says Hi.... R

    I'm selling my SMS Model 2 locally.  I took pictures of it for the buyer.  Why not take a picture of the SMS Model 1 at the same time?  Here they both are for your viewing pleasure. 

    SMS is a great system.  Highly recommended for anyone that enjoys the NES or 7800.

    It is funny how often I forget to fire up MAME to compare the arcade version of home ports, soooo many great arcade classics at our disposal in MAME. It is always interesting to see how different the original arcade version is since those were typically designed to challenge you to keep trying while consuming your coins and so home versions though maybe not always comparable graphically sometimes made up for it with additional features. I will definitely check out the link you mentioned. All these arcade games at my disposal, literally thousands so no matter how many times I fire it up even after all these years there is always something new to check out or great classics to re-experience. Puzzle, side scrolling shooters, racing, fighting, obscure Japanese and even clone and knock off games, though I COULD do without all the Mahjong titles I don't need.
