    You fancy punk youngsters with your PS9 that's just a stand and a hard light projector have no idea what moving back in the '10s was like!
    I first recall playing Pong at a pizza parlor, circa 1975 or 1976, on a game machine that was about half of the size of a pinball machine. I think it would have taken two of us to lift that thing up and move it.

    I remember playing Donkey Kong in the arcade on a machine that probably weighed more than a refrigerator.

    I remember when my parents would take me to Davenport's Pizza Palace (still the best pizza in Birmingham, IMO) and they would give me a few quarters to play the Donkey Kong machine. They also had Galaga, but that was too much for wee little Peelee; Donkey Kong was where it was at.

    Godspeed, Jumpman. You served me well.

The Nikka Coffey Malt is my favorite to sip like it was dessert, so buttery and creamy. You like the sweetness and notes of sherry-aged scotches? I like Dalmore and Aberlour. Prefer bourbon to single-malt? Garrison Brothers is my gold standard.

    Many thanks for the recommendations! In terms of whiskey, Iím not really sure yet what I like; I guess Iím mostly looking to experiment and move past the (very cheap) stuff that Iíve tried to date. So, I guess Iíll have to let you know what works.

    Well, I wouldn't drop a lot of money on bottles until you know what you like; I would, however, recommend going to a whiskey bar and trying an assortment along the lines I suggested, or, if you have a whiskey bar of sufficient quality, ask the bartender or proprietor for a flight recommendation.

    In the 80s computer game "Mercenary: Escape from Targ" one of the best craft you could fly was a wedge of cheese...I have no idea why. This was also the game that had a quest to fetch the "Essential 12939 supply" (hint: it looks different when you look at it backwards, which was easy to do because all the 3D objects in the game could be looked through).

    Hey, go for it. If it's pretty good, stick on the sig, if you run out of room you can get an extended sig in the Extended Signature thread that's somewhere out there.

    You know what, your right (I have seen that extended sig threads and used it as links to the forum threads I've gone through).

    So you know: you can "make" quotes "by" someone by doing [/QUOTE=Schroeswald] / put in for texture [/QUOTE]. By putting that into the parameters of a quote

    If you don't include those numbers that come right after the normal quote parameters, it just lacks a link to go to that thread.

    Science!

    I know it's talking about the functions of the forum, but it's something I never noticed until a few weeks ago and it's really cool.

    You know you don't even need the texture to show how to do a quote. For example, in that quote right above this text, how I got the first end quote tag to not actually end the quote.
