    The A2600 was a definite deviation from the norm in the way we looked at television. It was like you had each game as like an interactive TV channel. Channel Three came alive, with graphics and gaming! Of course, the Fairchild Channel F was the first system to offer interchangeable game cartridges (I believe that was the first), but the A2600 was the system that caused the idea to take off. It was to be reckoned with, for sure, and put Atari in the true mainstream. Definitely a fun system to this very day, 43 years later. I was almost two years old when it came out. My family got their first Atari system in 1982. We spent hours playing Frogger, Outlaw, Night Driver, et cetera! It never stopped. It was and is fun at its finest.

    I've got a very old single core laptop that runs Windows 7 just fine, but Win10 won't install due to a missing driver for some motherboard component.  It's a really nice PC because the form factor is tiny and it has a really great keyboard.  But it's getting pretty slow, and I think it's mostly that single core CPU.  I've pretty much retired that one to the attic.  It has no value, so no use trying to sell it.
    Anything dual core will do Win10 just fine and adding memory does help it run faster IMO.  I've got a Core 2 Duo laptop that's very old but works great.  SSD and 4GB of memory have kept it going, and I use that one a lot.

    I recently updated the oldest desktop computer in my office with Windows 7 and it works like a charm with Windows 10.

    MaximumRD reacted to RickR in Hair grooming during self isolation.   
    My story:  I was lucky enough to get a haircut right before this mess happened in very early Feb.  For whatever reason, I asked the lady for a "2" instead of my normal "3" (which is shorter).  So far, I'm in decent shape.  But I think when this is over, I'll be sporting a "Gaston".  Everything pulled back into a pony of some kind.  My hair tends to grown out sideways....like Krusty the Clown. 

    But I have had to trim my wife's bangs once so far.  God help me, it's a lot of pressure.  I think I did ok, and she says so too.

    I'm glad you are feeling better and able to clear out those sinuses.  It could just be seasonal allergies, but you are wise to take it seriously and be careful.

    I think that sad story has been repeated millions of times by other kids in every place on Earth.  It's called the "stupid tax".  The price we pay for the stupid things we do.  Hopefully, we all learn from these mistakes the first time they happen!
