    My old PC, which I've had since before the banks almost crashed our global economy, has finally been replaced. No more trying a half-dozen times just to copy a video from my phone to the computer. No more 10 minutes from power-on to actually responding. I have a real machine now, and along with ...

    In the past couple weeks, I've picked up an NES, Genesis, Saturn, and an Atari 7800! Already finished the original Legend of Zelda for the first time. (no, really)
    I may have to hunt down a game or two on each system now to set at least one score. And while I'm at it, maybe ones from the ...

    Well, I guess one way for the newsfeed articles to avoid getting called out for shoddy, biased reporting is to not have a functional submit button. Just tried to point out how the Nintendo Switch Online article was unnecessarily and blatantly biased toward Sony over Xbox, but nope, pressing the submit ...

  12. My Seattle Retro Gaming Expo haul

    Saturday was my first time attending the Seattle Retro Gaming Expo - or any retro gaming expo, for that matter, if you don't count the NW Pinball Show (which I think is different).

    Had a pretty good haul overall, I'd say.

    Bad idea - trying to make a bunch of UI changes the morning after an event occurs that's likely to drive a lot of traffic to the site.
