  1. Take that left turn at full speed at your peril. If there's a car there, you will crash for sure. Simply no way to maneuver. Slow down instead and catch any cars on the other side of the curve.
  2. 70,100 I'm playing on the MESS emulator. This was my 5th try and I only crashed once on this run. Never hit the brakes and only let off the gas to get past that sharp left turn.
  3. I haven't had time to thrift shop in a long while, but I went this weekend and found these two gems.
  4. My suspicion is a heat issue. Most likely on the power brick. Try pointing a fan right at the power brick as you play to see if that helps.
  5. You've done a really great job. I think it's inspiring. I'm still a couple of years out from trying something that nice (I'm waiting for the kids to move out). Most of my good junk is boxed and stored in the attic and comes out one system at a time to play.
  6. Damn, sons! Those are great scores. Share tips please.
  7. What you eat in Vegas Stays in Vegas.
  8. I've seen this brand and sauce at my grocery store, but the "CAUTION" on the label scares me away. Next time it's on sale, I'll give it a shot.
  9. I got super lucky on mine. A friend upgraded to a new box and sold me his old one for cheap. Core i7 7700k, 32GB DDR4, Asus motherboard, the M2 SSD and nice case and power adapter. All I had to do was get a new heatsink/fan for the CPU. If you happen to have any friends that recently upgraded, it never hurts to ask about their old stuff.
  10. Hey @kamakazi20012: I just checked my parts box. I have 2 1GB sticks of DDR2 and 2 2GB sticks of DDR2. If you think they'll work for you PM me. Available super cheap. I also have a whole bunch of 512Mb sticks, but I assume those are of no use to you.
  11. Hey, that was me! So cool.
  12. Yeah, that threw me the first time too (that's why my picture came out a little blurry). I don't know if you can pause at that screen with the "Run" button or not. I will try next time.
  13. One of my kids likes "Franks" a lot, and I think it's pretty good too. But I don't think it's very hot compared to these nuclear options you bought. Chas10e mentioned the salsa at Mexican restaurants. I usually try the hottest they got at those places, then back off if it's too hot. Most of the time, the hotter salsas have a lot more flavor whereas the mild just tastes like watery tomato. But then I'll start sweating and my wife says "you better take it easy".
  14. I gotta say I love the creative labeling with bombs, skulls, and flames.
