    😀 Book is only a few USD, probably worth snagging. 🙂 Shame it seems to be out of print, though, even though the website is still being updated.

    Yeah, a lot of businesses have them here and they’re going nuts! I’ve been trying to eradicate elephant ears from my garden with limited success. Tried digging them out and they come back. Tried dowsing…[Read more]

    Is the new one still using Roku or are they switching to a different backend?

    Awesome! I like anologue clocks myself. Partly because I like the ticking!

    Yep, tweezers of all sizes are indispensable! Splinters (never fun), repairs, and more! You may be able to find a kit with several sizes. 🙂

    Not exactly. After Maxx “C” is activated, whenever the other player summons a monster then the player who activated Maxx “C” draws a card. So: Summon -> Other Draws -> Summon -> Other draws rinse and repeat. If they draw Sales Ban, then you’re essentially out of luck with drawing during their turn as they’ll likely have other cards that’ll lock…[Read more]

    Yeah, grading a weird area. A lot of collectors like it but I personally don’t see the draw. It’s not like you’ll be able to open the comic up after it’s been sealed! I want to read it! 😛

    I’d do it for something that I find special, though. Maybe for a certain issue that speaks to me or was a friendship gift or the like. 🙂

    There’s also…[Read more]

    Master Duel is mostly based on the OCG rulings and ban list but has since evolved to include bits of the TCG ones and even its own so a lot of people consider it its own format now. I will say that when they banned Maxx “C” for a few days, the game was a lot more fun. It’s a really broken card. Essentially, it lets you draw a card whenever your…[Read more]

    Yeah, it’ll be a big job for sure. I suppose I could start by checking public record and going from there. Have to start somewhere!

    Are you clicking the icon in the window border that also gives you the drop down options for Minimize or maximize or the File menu? It’s usually in the former if available 🙂

    Cool! At the cemetery that a lot of family uses, some of the graves for the oldest relations are so old (by Florida standards, at least) that it’s very hard to identify them, especially with them being around the time the Civil War was heating up. The records from that period are pretty poor so we’ve only got a general idea of who they belong to.…[Read more]

    It’s nothing special, just a long rectangle about four inches wide and two feet long and an inch high. Think it was scrap from something. Not sure what! I’m using it as a pedestal for my miniature rock garden 😛

    Hopefully the new one isn’t as finicky! Still enjoying my Roku Ultra. Absolutely no problems with it and it’s a lot more responsive than…[Read more]

  • Bob Marley replied to the topic Samsung Tablets in the forum Projects 3 weeks, 3 days ago

    Great! Weird issue with the old SIM but at least the new one is up and running 🙂

    Not sure on game compatibility with physical keyboards as I haven’t played a mobile game in, oh, twelve years? Something like that, anyways!

    Yeah, I dislike onscreen keyboards too. Granted, I haven’t picked up a physical one but I probably will one day.

    I took a…[Read more]

    Haven’t had a chance to read it yet but had an interesting article come in related to what we were discussing: https://futurism.com/the-byte/biologist-says-sun-conscious

    Over the course of the last few months, it looks like the seed for the random number generator in Master Duel is set on load instead of being randomized before each round. Could be wrong and just be incredibly unlucky but I have had days where I get awesome hands each round for the session and other days where I get zilch each time. Generally,…[Read more]

    Went ahead and moved this thread to the public area 🙂

    Yeah, he will be missed 🙁

    😀

    Just realized that I haven’t shared Hammerfall in close to a decade. Need to fix that!

    Saw The Driller Killer yesterday and it was pretty ho hum. I disagree with the reception on that and the categorization as a black comedy. The slasher aspects and the basic plot were only loosely linked together and there was no fanfare at all with the slasher bits, just people getting drilled up for no apparent rhyme or reason. They also overdid…[Read more]

    Tardigrades are near indestructible! 😀

    Yep, many different possibilities that definitely need consideration. Take Venus, for instance. There are some theories that microbial life could be living in its clouds. Fortunately, this is a planned mission but by a private party. We need more publicly funded missions to keep the private sectors from…[Read more]

    I’ve seen a variety of flavored soaps, too! Used to be pretty popular but that trend seems to have waned 😛

    About half the cost is for the grading and cover price. The grading service is 15 – 20 USD depending on outfit and the cover price is 6 – 7 USD. Looks like it’s also signed so that adds additional value. Personally, though, I wouldn’t pay…[Read more]

    Yep! Got them the other week 🙂 Haven’t had the opportunity to do much with them yet, though. It’s either been pouring rain or too humid 🙁

    Yep, got a multimeter but I may need a new one. This one is ten years old and was a freebie from a discount store so I’ll need to test it and even then its accuracy may be rather questionable 😛

    Cool! I’d…[Read more]

    It was mostly a joke game but had a lot of publicity 😛 Haven’t played it myself yet but I’ve been meaning to just for the “fun” of it 😛

    Yep! Most the games are your standard fighter fair but that does make some sense as the most popular series (DBZ and Super) are all about fighting. They did make an RPG a couple of years back, Kakarot,…[Read more]

    Over here, our local OTA ads are pretty much medication related or for personal injury lawyers now. In some cases, ads are run but the product is never even mentioned at all in the ad, save in the fine print that you need to get up to the TV to see, so they aren’t all that effective. I miss the days of fun ads! 🙁

    Smellovision! 😀 Disney still…[Read more]

    There’s always Goat Simulator! 😛

    Started watching the original Dragon Ball the other day and it’s a lot of fun. Very different from DBZ and I quite like it! 🙂
