Considered, yes. Do I think I have the skill currently? Nor so much.

Great to hear from you again, man. ;)

I've ben floating between a few hobbies, myself. Recently picked up leatherworking, again, and I may actually have a bag produced by the time this mess of an outbreak has caused is over with. Other than that, I've also been doing some smalltime crochet, and even smaller time electronics dabbling.

I've also been talking off and on with an old high school friend that had a major crush on me, and we're testing the waters with whether or not we'd work. So there's that to hope for. Other than that, I've basically just been trying to find things to keep me occupied, and it hasn't been working out all that great.

As a current disabled person, I can feel your woes, Guardian. My case was pretty easily managed (I'm legally blind, so I definitely can't work in most professions), but I do know enough about the process overall to know how bad it is to have to wait patiently just to find out if you even qualify, much less how much you get. I hope you get what you need as soon as possible, and I hope you get time to get more books out ;)

Cover Story / Re: Atari VCS up for Preorder.
« on: October 10, 2019, 10:25:03 AM »
Been a while since this got updated. The VCS is nearing release for backers, currently slated for shipment in December, and pre-orders for everyone else are available at Walmart, GameStop, and the Atari VCS website.

Specs have changed, as well.
Partnering with AMD, a new APU has been developed for use with the VCS, as it will have (upgradable!) twin SODIMM DDR4 4GB RAM sticks (8GB total), and a slot for an M2 solid state hard drive to upgrade the internal memory. There are two USB 3.1 ports on the back, and two USB ports on the front (version not disclosed in the dev blog I read).

On the games side, there is a partnership with Antstream for access to a multitude of games, and third party games have not been released, as of yet.

One major thing that I noticed was a comment somewhere that the backers will be helping with the playtesting phase. We will be receiving pre-production firmware to test out and report on, to see if there are any bugs. As a slightly experienced coder, I'm kinda looking forward to that. ;)

I disagree. Why? Because the general populace is ignorant. And greatly afraid of linux. There is no valid reason behind it, but that's how it is.

There's also the fact that in general, most games that are getting high focus in the PC gaming arena are based off of Unreal or the other engine I can't remember the name of, and they're buggy as all hells, at times.

I don't own it myself, just yet, but I plan on getting it. They revealed a free DLC is coming soon at E3, so there's new content coming.

Aegis, I'm pretty sure everybody knows I'm partially blind by now. -_-

Meh, no wife, or child in my life. No real interaction with people, these days. I might be changing that in a minute detail, but I don't think my options are ever going to improve, sadly. But I am an uncle, and will soon be a great uncle! ;)

Also, Davers used to be Hounder. He requested his name be changed back in 2007, when we were still recording all that stuff.

Good to see you, Davers.

...don't we have a friend code list for Switch users?
*runs off to check*

Last time I heard anything from him was on IRC server (I might bet incirrect about it being a .org, though)

Oh, [email protected] It's the Flying Dutchman! ;D

I'm doing good, all things considered. How goes the child raising and married life? ')
