Re: The printed page

I've forgotten the date, but for things that are in the public domain, you can get those dirt cheap as e-books. For instance, if you want to read Sherlock Holmes or Conan the Barbarian or Lovecraft or Tarzan or many of these Astonishing Tales

Re: Xbox One down on Wednesday

There was just an article in a major newspaper about the boom in home security cameras and how scary and invasive those can be....plus the babycam articles and others. And of course my smartphone is scary beyond belief. I was checking to see if I could take some young people out to a venue, and my p...

As it turns out I found the last book in the series. (Never read one before, but I'd heard that the series was good.) Now I know how everything ends, but I still want more.


You can pick up Trade Paperbacks of Jeff Smiths Bone pretty cheaply. Go for it.

I like to game on old 8 bit microcomputers, but I've had some fun either with hobbyist made add-ons like disk drive emulators or complete software computer emulators. I can find scans of old magazines, and there always seems to be a new retrogami...

Re: The 55 dollar question...

I'd probably go for the C64 mini. I never had one nor did I know anybody in my circle of friends who had one either when I was a kid. So I'm very curious as to how good a gaming machine it actually was. And since I really don't have the time, space or money to spend on an actual C64, the games and ...

Re: Sanford and Son (Odyssey 2)

Oh, I've been absent from this site for far too long. I'm glad I came back to see this post. Almost 2 years after this was written and I fell for it. I was like "Welp. Gotta buy an Odyssey 2 now." Scotland, this was brilliant! mi This made my day - thanks! The problem with many of the Ody...

Re: Album Sales Dying Fast

Once there was Netflix, which tried years ago to divest themselves of their physical DVD by mail service once they had enough streaming members. Now with smart tvs, many households are capab...
