Re: Yankee Peddler Day flea market

Update: Tested them both late last night. Both controllers had directional issues, while the fire button on them worked fine. So today I took them apart and cleaned the contacts. One was slightly different (see pics), but the mechanics were the same. They sure were filthy! So bad that I thought I mi...

Re: MaximumRD immortalized in actual Colecovision ROM!!!!

Yeah, that's pretty cool. I got a thanks on a Vectrex homebrew ROM as well (BOMBENHAGEL) and my forums were mentioned in the instructions for Stramash Zone. Wonder how MaximumRD is doing nowadays. He's doing great, I see him all the time on Facebook. He's still making videos too. He last posted her...

Re: Yankee Peddler Day flea market

Time for the annual Yankee Peddler Day thread! This year it was to take place on May 5th, but it rained, so the date was pushed back to yesterday (May 19th). Temp was in the high 60's/low 70's, and fairly sunny. $3 to get in, still really cheap. Anyways, the place is outdoors but not too large. Vend...

Re: MaximumRD immortalized in actual Colecovision ROM!!!!

@MaximumRD 15 years later, I not only just realized that I'm in there too at 3:25, but I'm also the main thumbnail! :bananna:

Wow, my original profile pic and name! :D Any idea if the ROM still exists? The download link is now broken.

Re: C64 DTV

http://blip.tv/file/749800 Heres a video of the C64 DTV designer's interview-like thing. I was recently brought to my attention in an email that there was a broken link in this thread, and it was to Blip.tv. A fellow named Stephen kindly pointed out that Blip.tv has been shut down since August 20, ...

Re: My collection of handhelds........

I love re-watching your old videos Rob! Please don't ever take them down. I have no intention of EVER taking down my channel or content, always bugged me when people do that. :DonkeyKongJr_spin: Besides, it's the only visual record of many of the items that were stolen a couple years back 🤷‍♂️😝 Awe...

Re: Can anyone identify this dot matrix printer next to a Neo-Geo?

Update: I found the best picture yet, which clearly shows that the controls are on the right. I also circled two additional clues. The top circle shows what appears to be an indent so that you can lift the smoked plastic cover without struggling. The bottom circle shows what could possibly be a comp...

Land of the Lost (1974)

Anyone here old enough to remember Land of the Lost? I'm talking about the original series, not the 1991 reboot or the 2009 Will Ferrell movie. It ran for three seasons, from 1974 to 1976, and was a Sid & Marty Krofft production. In the final season, the father Rick Marshall was replaced with hi...
