    This weekend, the good guys at Atari 7800 Forever churned out 4 reviews of classic 7800 games for your azzes... We found a great one, a good one, and a couple of stinkers. Find out what we thought of Water Ski, Super Pac Man, Tank Command and Pac Man Collection on the Atari 7800 Mothership! www.atari7800forever.com

    A quick rant... I get that not everyone studied philosophy in college, but for goodness sakes, can we at least add Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure to high school curriculum? Today was one of those days that made me regret the email handle I chose for myself coming out of college that I continue to use today -- socrates63.

    I went to the University District in Seattle this morning to drop off my Kindle e-reader to trade in for a gift card and 20% coupon for a future Kindle purchase from Amazon. I was asked for my email address, and I said saw-kra-teez-63. It was apparent he was lost, so I spelled it out for him... three times... and he still couldn't get it right. Was he nervous because of my imposing Adonis physique? Finally, another guy jumped in to help. I knew I should have gone with "sixpak," my high school nickname 🤦‍♂️ At least no one said out loud SO-CRATES. I would have died if someone did.
    But while I was in the area, I walked over to Pink Gorilla and Al's Music, and pick up some goodies. I've always wanted to see The Black Hole, so I ordered a DVD copy when I got home. I don't collect Jaguar games, but when I find reasonably priced CIB copies, I don't mind adding them. I now have three 🙂 (Tempest is the other one I have).

    Living large, living fancy 😄 Finally, after sitting in several boxes in the foyer since last October, I spent the Fourth assembling this motorized standing desk by Uplink. The Steelcase office chair is still in the box (I'll probably get to that this weekend).
    The equipment was provided gratis by HBO Benefits since my chiropractor wrote a note explaining my back condition. HR lady gave me carte blanche and told me to order whatever I wanted and insisted that I order a nice standing pad as well. I see it as my "parting gift" from the company.
    After getting the pink slip last November though, I had lost all interest in assembling it, but now that I have a new job, I had a reason to get it up and working pronto 😄 It's very nice. I can now open the Super Mario Bros. Game & Watch that I got to use as my desk clock.
    Life is slowly but surely returning to a sense of normalcy.

    Thank you, @Justin, for your kind words and for bringing back the High Score Challenge. The Suzuka track is very challenging and was often frustrating lol. I was fortunate to win the 2021 Grand Prix.

    There's an unprecedented heat-wave here.  I've had to move my collection out of the attic.  It's way too hot in there for this stuff.  Future plans include selling some of this stuff off and moving the rest into the garage (which is far more climate-controlled).

    Pluto TV
    Ever hear of it? I didn't until I applied for a job. It's an ad-supported free streaming service. I've been watching a lot of shows that I grew up with as a kid (Family Ties, Facts of Life, and more). This week, I started my new job as TPM for international. I'm working with folks to bring Pluto TV to markets outside the US. I'm working for the first time in seven months, so my head is spinning a bit.
    Recovering from heart surgery took a few months. I don't think I'm 100% but pretty close and certainly well enough now to work.
