Retro Console Collecting - Part IV (Ebay Highs and Lows)

Posted 3rd December 2010 at 01:14 AM by Schizo (Retro Console Collecting)

After far too long of a hiatus, I have made my triumphant return! Real life is such a PITA sometimes, and I've just not had the chance to brag (bLOg, I meant blog...just two letters off there) about some of my recent finds/purchases/outbid/omgwtfbbq experiences on ebay over the last two months to grow the collection.

So I'm back, and glad you're all with me here.

*crickets chirping*

So we'll start off with my experiences and prices paid so far:

Talera vs The Movie Habit

Posted 1st December 2010 at 02:43 PM by Talera

I have a strange habit. I watch a lot of movies. This in itself is not strange, the fact that no matter how crap it is I have to watch until the end is. I have never walked out of a cinema. If I rent the movie or borrow it I must watch it to completion and cannot turn it off. The only exception is when it is on TV and I have to leave the house.
So as you can imagine, I have watched a lot of movies in my time. When I was at uni I was known as a connoisseur of not only B-Grade, but

Talera vs Working out of town

Posted 24th November 2010 at 02:17 PM by Talera

You wonít hear me talk much about my employment on here. What I do say will be fairly limited.

For work lately I have been out of town a lot. Now I have a laptop for work, but canít access most sites and also canít check my home email. Surprisingly enough, this frustrates the hell out of me. It isnít that I canít play computer games or anything. No itís that I perform most of my communications with others electronically now, via email or the dreaded FB.

So when I work...

The Kids These Days with Their Fast-Paced MMOs

Tags mmorpg

Like many of you who will read this, I enjoy MMORPGs. I've been playing them off and on (mostly on) since the late 90's. I started with Asheron's Call, took a detour through Everquest, City of Heroes, Star Wars Galaxies, and I have found a comfortable existence in Lord of the Rings Online, and World of Warcraft, with the odd attempt now and then to give myself a seizure in Perfect World. While some of you may count this a thin resume, I feel that it gives me a certain pedigree in the world of...

Computers and Children

Posted 17th November 2010 at 10:28 AM by Rage

I remember when I was younger, watching a 2year old get on her dad's computer, start it up, go into windows, load the game she was after and start playing. I was pretty impressed with her computer skills at such a young age and I always thought that I'd like my children to be very computer literate. Both of my children have shown very little interest in the computer until recently and now, they can pilot it even in ways I've never shown them. They just learn things so quickly. But how young is too...
