Thankfully, I am 100% confident that my kitty's thyroid medicine does work; she has hyperthyroidism from a benign tumor on her thyroid. It was VERY obvious that it was having a positive effect when the vet put her on it and I saw her plump up and feel tons better. Vomiting was another symptom... and that ceased. Another symptom was that she was dropping weight, which was scary because she was always hungry despite getting skinnier and skinnier. In fact, once she was on the medicine, she got a bit chubby and we ended up having to lower her dosage. She then trimmed down to normal weight and we keep her on a managed dose; she needs to be on it forever. No doubt at all that this particular med works. Forget the name offhand, though.
You are right about the C-64 power supplies. I went through a few of them, myself. I remember ultimately getting a 3rd party model that was advertised in Compute or Compute's Gazette back in the day. They touted that it was far more reliable. I think it was pricey... I have a weird memory of it costing $35 back in the 80s. (My grandmother was kind enough to spring for it.) I still have it to this day and it still works like a charm, so I guess it was worth the money.
On the other hand, you won't get me to easily praise much about the ADAM. heh I remember the commercials for it made it look great, though. Dragon's Lair looked quite good on it for the time! And it did play Colecovision game cartridges, so that was always a good thing.
But it all comes in one box!
That video from the link in the post is like a cavalcade of hipsters!
So long and thanks for all the..... GURGLE
"Fortunately there's a thing called Auto-Tune..." Never thought I'd hear someone say that sentence without joking about it.
If I had a mod point, I'd toss it at ya.
Tempest 2000 and Aliens vs. Predator are the games worth having a Jaguar for. Tempest 2000 being THE better game of the two. Being a Vita owner, I am completely thrilled to hear this news. The Vita has some great titles, but MORE, MORE, MORE!
Keep Calm and Die A Slow Painful Death
Tablets now fall under the umbrella of being a PC. BAM! Problem fixed... no more PC sales decline.
Windows 180 would be a good title... to go along with their XBOX ONE EIGHTY! They spun quick on that DRM crap after the Internet bit their face off.
The King death rumor is just that... a rumor. He's alive and well.
I think it is just worded wonky... I get the impression that they mean that PINBALL is the unlikely place in retro gaming that people would expect a resurgence.
Interesting. I guess I never realized that the PS3 controllers had this capability because I never played anything that apparently used this and also because there was no indication on the controller that they had analog button functions. I remember the old conrollers had that button that actually said, "ANALOG" on it, so there was no mistaking there.
