    From the looks of it Todd Rogers will be on the Ben Heck show. He is going great lengths to show the world 5.51 is possible.

    I'm back baby!!! 5.61 using a broken joystick. I wasn't even trying, I just wanted to play for 5 minutes to see what frying the system would do (it does nothing). The Drag King is back! Wait... what?

    Either I really suck at Dragster, or it's my broken controllers. I got new controllers coming in on Friday but I'm thinking It's me that's the problem. I don't know how I am going to get around this slump. I went from being able to get four 5.61s in an hour to none. It's been a week since I got a 5.61. ...

    I am very close to getting a 5.57 on Dragster. I developed a new technique last night that allows me to make more accurate taps. Today I managed to get four 5.61s, and about a dozen 5.64s, so I know I am close. Problem is I am VERY tired tonight in general. If I keep pushing I should have it by this ...

    I received my modded Atari 2600 in the mail today. The RCA hookups were poorly fabricated as they are not inline as you can see, but for $60 I can't complain. Picture looks a whole lot better except with Halo 2600, I am guessing the game has a design flaw that kept the picture from looking sharp. ...
