    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.

    Ebay has sent me a $25 discount (off a $25.01 or more purchase) for being a member since their beginning!  Help me figure out what to buy. 
    I'm thinking about the following choices:
    An N64 or NES flashcart/everdrive One of the rarer 2600 carts that I don't have (Frankenstein's Monster, Gremlins, or ???) A 1200xl. Help me find something good for a decent price!

    📞 One Friday night as a young man I prank called Jack Tramiel. Had him on the phone for 3 mins. Not my proudest moment, but I should tell that story sometime.

    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.

    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'll miss Robert Forster. What a presence. Just watched him in El Camino tonight, then saw on my phone he passed away from cancer. Was brilliant in Twin Peaks and Jackie Brown. One of my favorite actors, I'm sad he's gone.
