    RickR got a reaction from Justin in Do you use hot sauce? How hot do you like it?   
    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.

    Today's finds
    A Tomy robot from the 80's.
    A breast pump plug that is perfect for the NES. Lol. 
    A PS2 game
    And a probably-bad plug & play. 
    NOTE to @Arenafoot:  They also had Arena Football for PS2, and I almost bought it.  But the disk was scratched, and I knew it probably would not work.

    A very good day yesterday.  I found a bunch of good stuff as seen below.

     
    Check out this incredible Pac Man record I found.  Copyright is 1980.  I mostly bought it just for the artwork on the sleeve.  Overall, in poor condition, but it will look nice on my game room shelf.


     
    The Imagic games were a really lucky find, as I had those two games' boxes in very bad shape and with no plastic insert.  So I created my own cardboard inserts and cleaned them up as best I could.  And now I've got 5 boxed Imagic titles.

    Hey guys, still working this out. Looks to be somewhat costly and time consuming. HUGE turnoff from ever using Wordpress again given all of the vulnerabilities and how common malware infections have apparently become. Trying to enlist some professional assistance with this.
     The Forums though continue to be safe! Apologies for the inconvenience. Everything else here will continue to move ahead as usual, with High Score Squad Challenges coming up, Wednesday Night Atari Chat tonight, and Secret Santa coming up also. Thanks!

    Post and discuss cool retro items you find in the wild.
     
    Today I found these laser disks (Pioneer) for $2 each.   I don't have a player, and I hear they are pretty finicky anyways...but I couldn't resist.  Also a couple of Playstation AV cables for $0.50 each.

    There are several posts on Facebook about this.  I'm commenting to click the "see details" button and then the "ignore" link.  I've gotten the error even coming right into the forums.

    Hi everyone,
    Your browser may be giving you a malware "security warning" when you visit Atari I/O. I'm aware of this issue and working to resolve it. The forums have been updated with their latest security update this morning and should currently be a safe place to visit despite the security warning.
    The malware issue is affecting the "main" side of the website (http://www.atari.io) which runs on Wordpress. The forums side of the website (https://forums.atari.io) has always been hosted on a different server and runs on different software, which is more secure.
    However, because Google has detected the malware issue in the Wordpress part of our website, they have issued a warning for the entirety of Atari I/O until the issue has been completely resolved. Once I've been able to identify and remove the malicious content from the Wordpress side of the site, I will need to request a security review from Google and provide them with documentation showing the changes made to the site.  This may take a little time.
    If there's "a doctor in the house" and you have experience removing malware from Wordpress sites and would like to volunteer your assistance in helping me resolve this issue please send me a PM.
    I will be working on this and will keep you updated as I reach important milestones.
     
    Best Wishes to All!

    I LOVE spicy food & sauces but it has to be tolerable. If it’s so spicy that I can’t enjoy the flavor, than that’s no good. 
     
    This is from my absolute favorite restaurant, which makes pasta from scratch. If you can’t make out the writing, it says “Reaper Hab”. 🔥 Soooo good. I pair it with Buffalo Alfredo sauce.

    No way!
    If people don't trust me, that's tough for them.
    When I do the drawing, I will do it live & record it.
    I can tell you right now that I will be shuffling the list 12 times, as that's my favorite number. 
    Also, I'll make sure I have enough prizes for everyone who donates. The winner of the giveaway will have the first pick, then the next in line will have the second, etc. until everything is gone.

    Sooooo... 😀
    Several of you have already been kind enough to donate to my Extra Life fundraiser this year. You guys got me off to a great start (I'm currently at 41% of my goal) but I'm always looking to do more.
    The event is coming up in a few weeks (November 2) and while you can still donate through the end of the year, I want to make another push to exceed my goal on or before gameday.
    Therefore, I've decided to do a raffle similar to what @Atari Creep did for his Alzheimer's Walk fundraiser. For every dollar donated (retroactive for all of you who have already donated!), you will receive one entry into the drawing.
    Now you must be wondering, "What are the damn prizes??"
    That's a great question. Stay tuned & I will be posting them here over the next couple of days.
    I have some ideas already and they include gift certificates relevant to the retro gaming scene, some classic toys and who knows what else I can find. Mainly, it will be gift certificates since you guys already wiped out my excess retro game collection.
    Here's the link to donate: Storm's Extra Life Page
    (Our own @fergojisan is part of my fundraising team. You can join too and together, we can rule the fundraising galaxy not as father and son but rather as good pals.)
    Disclaimer: Only those who let me know that they donated for the giveaway will be entered into the drawing. Again, those Atari.IO members who have already given are already entered but none of the other donors from outside Atari.IO who have already donated will be. That said, with @Justin's blessing, I may open it up to other retrogamers, nerds, etc. from my Twitter & IG followers and possibly the very few posters who know of me at AA.

    What is Extra Life??
    It's a 24 hour gaming marathon (EDIT: 25 hours! Daylight Savings Time!!) to raise money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life has raised over $50 million for sick & injured kids. I'm raising money for the Connecticut Children's Medical Center (yes, I know I live in NY now, but it's basically CT. It's a long story.) All donations are tax-deductible.
