  1. Retro TV shows! Three months ago in early October 2020, I ordered these DVD sets from ebay. For a month, the tracking number indicated that USPS hadn't received the package from the seller. I believed the seller when she said that she did ship, but what can you do? After I waited a month, and without fuss, she gave me a refund. Today, out of the blue, they showed up in my mail box. I already bought them from another seller on ebay couple of months ago. These are in better condition than my other new and sealed sets. Anyone want to trade DVD box sets of old TV shows? 🙂 

    After re-acquiring a tube TV and appreciating how it does wonders with older games and media, I've re-embraced DVD content. Many old TV shows are only available on DVD, and I've purchased a several (Munsters, I Dream of Jeannie, Bionic Woman, 6M Dollar Man, My Living Doll, some Korean shows) during the past six months after holding out for Blu-ray releases.

      The USPS is massively backed up right now. I'm waiting on several packages.

      My wife and I are constantly watch old shows. Right now we're mixing up Knight Rider, Little House on the Prarie (her favorite) and Dinosaurs.

  3. My game collection cleanup continues.
    Recently I reorganized my Atari 8-bit games. Turns out I have a lot of copies of "Left Cartridge"! 😉
    I also have 3 games without labels. I'll be posting a video soon showing what they turned out to be.

      My guess is at some point, they reduced the box sizes. I wouldn't be surprised if some games came out in large boxes that later got shrunk.

      @socrates63, Some of the Atari 8-bit game boxes are way too massive. Usually I like to have complete games, but for those big boxes, I'm ok without them.

  5. The most blessed news I've heard in some time:

    Level 1 reduced to Level Zero

    Effective immediately (Sunday, Sept. 13), the Clackamas Co Sheriff’s Office is dropping the evacuation level for some of the populated urban areas from Level 1 (Green) back to Normal. This includes Wilsonville, Lake Oswego, West Linn, Happy Valley, Gladstone, Milwaukie, Clackamas, and Tualatin. See map https://bit.ly/35kgtbE for changes.
  6. We're still in a very bleak place in Oregon, as wildfires continue to spread.  The sun is pink, and everything is grey outside.  It's difficult to breathe with all the smoke in the air.  At the moment, my area remains at "Level 1" of alertness with fires just a few miles to the south and east.  My family is fine, and we have a few options of places to go if we are forced to evacuate. 

    The advice I gave my children is what I really believe.  I told them that our bodies and our memories and knowledge are all we need.  "Stuff" is unimportant.  We will be fine. 

    I'm ending this status with a picture from a small town south of here.  It's a complete loss for many, and our entire community is in shock.  We will support each other as best we can.  I plan on making a giant donation to our local Red Cross. 

    Thanks to all for your kind thoughts.  I do appreciate it very much.  I appreciate the few moments of normalcy and distraction from you all here in the forums.

      Those pictures are so sad, but I love what you teach your children. It's also crazy how slowly these fires are moving (which I hope is a good thing). I checked the map and its seemed to be the same from a couple days ago. Prayers for safety and strength for you and your family..

  7. Sorry to be a downer, but out here in Oregon, things are very bleak.  Fires throughout the state are devastating lives and homes and entire communities.  As I type this, the sky outside our home is an eerie orange.  Fires loom only miles away.  It's windy and dry and hot.  I'm terrified.  We are packing bags tonight in case the call comes to evacuate.  I've lived here my whole life, and never experienced anything like this.  Take care of yourselves, everybody.

      Take care of your family and keep us posted. Hopefully it won't reach you.

  8. 🏹 Playing Crossbow this week on 7800 Ave, do you play it w/ a Light Gun or Joystick? 

     

    1. nosweargamer

      nosweargamer

      Growing up I used a joystick, as I never saw the Light Gun sold separately, although when I revisited the game a few years back, I played it with the gun, which is probably my preferred method, although it's still fun with a joystick.

  9. One of the biggest lies any Youtuber will tell, is this opening line or intro announcement : 
    "I DIDN'T WANT TO MAKE THIS VIDEO".........
    Seriously, knock it off

  10. I've decided to try replaying the original NES "Legend of Zelda".  I don't think I ever finished the game, and it's been 30+ years since I've tried it.

      One of my favorite games ever! I usually play trough it at least one time a year. :nintendo_mario_whistle:

  11. 🤔 How do you say it?: S’ness or S.N.E.S. I’ve always said “Super NES”

  12. Just so you guys don't think I'm dead (because of no posts lately) -- although I'm sure @MaximumRD would respectfully report on it if I was, there's a new project I've been working on.  Restoration of a 2003 Subaru.  It's got a water leak (which makes it smell bad), and needs some engine work.  But I'm having FUN with it.  My father was an auto mechanic.  It feels good to get the hands dirty.

    AND...I got a NEW JOB!  I start next week.  Should be lower stress.  I hope.

      You're welcome! It's become hard to schedule to do stuff on Atari Day, but it just so happened I was recording a posting a 2600 review on the 26th!

      For social media, I stick to facebook and Twitter. Thanks!

      Ninja Golf should've been ported to everything and have yearly installments like Madden 😀
