  1. We got your e-mail I think the day after we recorded!
  2. Episode 103 is out! In this episode, Sean and Jim talk about two games that are not the most common buggers you’ll see in the arcade world. But hey, it’s for some special friends, so why not? http://www.fab4it.com/piefactory/audio/PFP_Episode103.mp3
  3. Just as with CrossBow, my wife and I don't really do the Hallowe'en thing. We do watch It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown every year though. Luckily, our company is dismissing us at 3 today. My wife is on strike, so she's probably monitoring media to see when she can go back to work. I THINK we're having left-over Chinese food...very Hallowe'eny, no?? Looking forward to finishing my fried rice! For me, the REAL celebration is tomorrow: I get off work early, and I'll be doing my ExtraLife gaming in the afternoon, and all day at the arcade on Saturday. EDIT: wife goes back to work tomorrow.
  4. Been a while since I posted about a new episode. There've been three since my last update here! In this chapter: Oh, jeez…another one of those Facebook things again?! Thoughts on two decades of marriage Blank (perhaps the most unusual Music For Schnooks installment yet) https://schnookpodcast.com/audio/Schnook_Chapter014.mp3
  5. Now that PRGE has happened and the game is now available, I'm looking for feedback a future episode of the Atari 7800 Homebrew Podcast (you can find it on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, or use this feed: http://feeds.feedburner.com/homebrew78 ). What are your thoughts on Baby Pac-Man Collection? You can also e-mail text or audio to homebrew78 -at- fab4it -dot- com. Deadline will be...hmm....let's say 11:59pm CDT Hallowe'en. Thanks!
  6. HOLY COW!! That is frickin' amazing! Thanks for sharing!
  7. Episode 102 has dropped! In this episode, Jim and Sean study the intricacies of the contrapuntal philosophies of the next-generation trends of the upper echelon and how they relate to the hoi polloi's intrapersonal struggle with the id and the superego. Or...was that another episode?? Hmm...well, this episode talks about either that or a couple of old video games called Space Panic and Looping; we don't remember for sure. http://fab4it.com/piefactory/audio/PFP_Episode102.mp3
  8. So we’ve lasted 100 episodes! Yay! And we’ve extended that savings on to YOU! Three special guests join our not-so-special hosts for a unique celebration of all things Pie Factory…well, maybe not all things Pie Factory, but…oh, just listen to The Pie Factory Podcast 100th Episode Spatula. http://fab4it.com/piefactory/audio/PFP_Episode100C.mp3
  9. You think the caution label scares you? There used to be a shop at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas that sold all kinds of hot sauces. For certain sauces, you'd actually have to sign a release for the State of Nevada before they'd allow you to purchase!
  10. Depends on the sauce, really. There's a thai restaurant near where I work (in fact, I had dinner with TrekMD there once ) -- I'll use any and all hot sauces they have there. But I'm not one of those hot sauce people who has to look for the hottest of the hot. I like a little pick-me-up.
  11. Episode 99! This time Jim and Sean talk about a couple of not-too-common arcade games that have a surprising number of things in common and some pretty interesting back stories. http://fab4it.com/piefactory/audio/PFP_Episode099C.mp3
  12. Just barely missed the July deadline, but here's a new chapter! In today's episode: Sean does another Facebook bullet-pointed list Chicago myth-busting "Dear Ruby," a tribute to the writings of Italo Calvino and to a source of frustration for some people in Sean's line of work https://schnookpodcast.com/audio/Schnook_Chapter011.mp3
  13. OMG, I actually have a smaller version of that mixer! A friend of mine sold it to me literally for a dollar about 20 years ago.
  14. Good lord...haven't updated this thread in months! We apologize for the lateness. We have switched to a 3-week schedule due to a little thing called life. Unfortunately, this coincided with the 4th of July holiday. But nonetheless...here's the new episode! http://fab4it.com/piefactory/audio/PFP_Episode098.mp3
  15. I've been really off the ball on my podcasts...not posting updates....well, I remembered this time. Chapter 10 actually does have a classic video game segment, so it's on topic! In this episode: My SENIOR Year in High School - answering a frequently-posted social media survey The Mysterious Phantom Pac-Man Game - For years Sean has insisted that a sequel in the Pac-Man franchise existed, yet nobody believed him. The Doors Without Jim - What's the point? Well... https://schnookpodcast.com/audio/Schnook_Chapter010.mp3
  16. Just the title of episode 93 is longer than some of the tweets we’ve sent out. Unlike with episode 92, these two games actually provide us with something substantial to say…imagine that! And we hope to see you at Midwest Gaming Classic today! http://fab4it.com/piefactory/audio/PFP_Episode093.mp3
  17. Okay, I think the podcast went through successfully this time! At long last, Sean is back with episode 49, about the newest game released for our beloved console! http://homebrew78.fab4it.com/media/hbh_episode_o49.mp3
  18. BTW, that rep from "Microsoft"...her name was Lisa Smith.
  19. Holy cow...okay, yeah, looks like someone else's podcast feed got crossed into mine....I'll look into it....thanks for the heads-up! 😉
  20. At long last, Sean is back with a new episode about the newest game released for our beloved console! http://homebrew78.fab4it.com/media/hbh_episode_049.mp3
  21. Episode 92? Hey, what can we say? A new month, a new episode, a New Rally-X. (And, of course, a Super Xevious!) More info about the This Week In Robotron contest at Midwest Gaming Classic coming soon -- keep your eyes and ears open! http://fab4it.com/piefactory/audio/PFP_Episode092.mp3
  22. Something I used to love doing to coworkers when they left their computers unlocked and unattended was to do a screen grab of the desktop and make that the wallpaper.
  23. Oh...and we have a special announcement too. http://www.fab4it.com/piefactory/audio/PFP_MGC_announcement.mp3
  24. So episode 91 was released a couple of days ago. In this off-topic episode, Jim and Sean reminisce about life with their favorite 16-bit computers. http://www.fab4it.com/piefactory/audio/PFP_Episode091.mp3
