    Over the years this topic has been discussed and debated extensively. I remember a few years back discussing five TG records that may stand the test of time and that list has since changed.

    Now if this isn't hypocritical I don't know what is.Apparently I just received an E-MAIL indicating that I am a nominee for the 2019 IVGHOF Hall of Fame, something I neither asked for nor want, BUT more importantly I should fail the so-called "Code of Ethics" with flying colours.

    Last year on a whim I compiled a list of the "TGTS" records that I was aware of...records on titles that were generally either "marathonable" or conducive to long-play.

    Not sure how well this enclosure will show up, but I'm curious how many of these have since been beaten.

    It is very well-written and covers all the bases, definitely worth the time to read.
