Re: Getting rid of ding dong ditchers?

You could just wire in a switch in the bell inside itself. Or just unscrew the wires for a few weeks.

Re: Super Retrocade Review

Dave, Have you tried loading any ROMs onto an SD card and popping it in the back? From what I understand, this will work as long as you put the ROMa in a folder titled "retrobit games". I decided to pass on this since I ended up getting my Retropie setup up and running again. Also, it app...

Re: Thunder Storms!

Tonight its golf ball hail and so much rain there are road closures for flooding.

Anyone got games to play to play with that? My thought was Breakout on the 2600. At least you get to play the hailstones taking out your roof

Re: 2018/5/12: Arcadia 2001: Doraemon (Japan), Monaco Grand Prix

A rare dual screenshot review for Monoco Grand Prix - and for a game that could be be on the RCA Studio II using just keys.

Re: Terrified of a Digital Future

i don't know about music and spotify, but streaming movies and tv has several issues. First, they are being parceled out among many providers - Netflix, Amazon, HBO, Hulu, etc. So its not a single subscription, its many. Second, content may only be there a limited time. A hit movie is on Netflix for...

Re: Terrified of a Digital Future

I have had a similar conversation about other media too - from books, music, comics, and movies. Digital really has a place. I travel with a kindle, for instance. You can buy digital media at any time, anywhere, and enjoy it right then and there. There are no worries about having the space, or movin...

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/06/opinion/save-barnes-noble.html Is a piece out today in the New York Times on the financially struggling Barnes and Nobles Booksellers, and the role that Amazon (and how the government views Amazon) is playing in those struggles. This also ties into the thread we h...
