      WOW!  Now that's cool.  

  4. 391 first try. I can do much better. There's two things I love about this game. The sound - Lovely crystal-like sounds. The fact that multiple bricks can go with each hit.
  5. Halloween report from sunny but cold Happy Valley, Oregon: My wife and I had 110 candies to hand out, and that lasted about an hour before we ran out. Our candy of choice this year was SpongeBob Krabby Patties, which were a big hit with the kids. They are little burgers where each individual item (bun, meat, cheese, pickles, etc) is a separate gummy candy. I "may" have sampled a few for myself. They are very tasty. Once that was done, we decided to watch a movie we'd never seen before. "Halloweentown", which is highly rated by Disney nerds and also has the benefit (for us) of being filmed in St. Helens, OR -- about 30 miles from us. The movie was made in 1998, and St Helens still does "Halloweentown" celebrations and decorations each year. Well, the movie was pretty so-so. Debbie Reynolds is always good, and the child actors were also very good. It's the story that's a real let-down here -- very predictable. I think this is a fine movie for little kids, but adults are going to get a little bored. All in all, a great night.
  6. I told my wife "no receipt, no return". She's stuck.
  7. *BUMP* C'mon people! Prizes AND blue hair! What are you waiting for???
  8. To open or not to open?

    Pulled from the most recent No Swear Gamer retro game box is the Hot Wheels USS Vengeance.  Should I open it, or display it in the package?

    Plus a view of the other ships in my office.

      I agree with StormSurge.  Normally I'd say not to because of value later but...it needs air.  Also...I didn't know HW made those.

      It has been opened!  Looks good, although they should have made it BIGGER than the Enterprise, right?

      You even have an arcade in there ;) 

  9. I'm looking around for a 775 motherboard for you (but no luck yet). Because a Core 2 Duo can run anything. Even Windows 10. I'll keep looking.
  10. 16400 first try. Woooweee, this is a perfect game for Halloween. There is NOTHING more satisfying that smacking the living with a board. I'm going to find time to play this one more. Warning: This is another game that doesn't show your score after you die. You gotta be careful and hit that pause button, get your camera ready, then unpause and snap!
  11. In our stores, the batteries are kept on an end cap. The AA/AA/C/D/9V take up the end cap shelves, and the button batteries are on the sides hanging on metal strips. I have tons of extra SATA cables, so I'll set one aside for you in case I find other parts for you.
  12. One more thing came to my mind....in our area, Dollar Tree sells button batteries (including 2032's) 2 per pack for $1.
  13. I'll bet someone Hulk'ed out a video card without pushing the little release clip. It is a shame. "EmulationStation" is probably your best bet to start looking at software-wise. I'm not sure if they make complete install packs like for Raspberry Pi, so you may end up having to install Linux first yourself.
