    Sad.  One look at 2020 and he knew "when to fold em" 

    I'll miss his music.  I also remember his "Roasters" chicken restaurants that had great food.

    I'm sorry, man.  My wife and I had similar plans.  A summer trip to NYC or Florida, and then a fall cruise Vancouver BC to Los Angeles (visiting grandma, and both sons).  It totally sucks.  But we will try to make the best of a bad situation.  Trying to stay home as much as possible.  Hoping we don't get laid off (and lose our health insurance during a pandemic).  Editorial:  Canada, many of us Americans envy your health care system. 

    Here's to hoping for a brisk end to this madness, and maybe the world will make some changes for the better once it's done.  That we should all work together no matter where a dangerous virus begins.  That we can keep the environment clean.  That we can all understand health care should be a given for all and not just those with jobs that happen to offer it.

    YES!  And also to the front-line delivery and postal workers.  It seems like they'll be getting quite a workout too.

    To quote my favorite teacher, "Jaguar! Jaguar! Jaguar!"
    Tempest 2000 would be an obvious choice. Other good options for an HSC would be Zero 5, Missile Command 3D, Defender 2000 and Raiden. 
    I'd also love to see a Saturn challenge.

    These days, I have all the Lynx games as I purchased one of the multi-carts.  The challenges give me the little push I need to try a particular game.

    I noticed that too.  Another thought....maybe do a poll a month prior with choices of various games for various systems.  Maybe if people vote, they'll actually play.  

    PS - my favorites are the Lynx challenges, as it usually involves a game I've never tried before.

    I think so too.  Maybe that's a way to build the site back up (focus on 2600 challenges).  Given that, maybe we wait to do 2600 until the site has been cleared of coronavirus.

    Wife and I visited the Hot Wheels section at our Wal-Mart the other night.  Out in action alley they had a large metal bin full of random cars.  Wife found the Roller Toaster and I found one ID car but I can't use it as intended.  I don't have any Android device using Oreo. She seen your two HW cars and we went hunting.  I'm HW collecting again without warning. LOL

    More importantly, congratulations on your new job! I hope it leads to less stress & more compensation.
