I just got an NES Classic (mini) as a gift, and it's awesome.  Hacking it was so easy, I have a bunch of other stuff on there.  Well worth the price, but the controller cord is short.  I'd get some from somewhere else.

They want to sell it on GOG, but GOG hasn't approved it for sale yet.

We can't all be expert GOG schmoozers like you, Steve.  ;)

Hey, I got in on the ground floor when they were smaller.  Not my fault I make friends easily, hahaha!

McDonalds is an American classic.

In n' Out is fun to go to.  Maybe it's a novelty to me, cause I live on the East Coast of the US, and they're only out west, but I enjoy a double-double animal style.

Popeye's has pretty good chicken.

Taco Bell is great at 3 AM when you're wasted.

It's funny to think about this.

Currently, I would die.

I mean, I hunt, I fish, I've camped in the wilderness.  But the fact is if I have no access to a dialysis machine, I'm dead in two weeks, max.  Most likely sooner.  My blood would become toxic, but I'd also gain so much fluid weight, I'd drown and/or have a heart attack from the stress.  I am kept alive by the grace of modern medcine and medical technology.  It's weird to live under such constraints, but that's my life.

Yeah, the game will be released, for sure.  I'm friends with people who have worked on it and play-tested it.  If anyone understands budget problems and long development times, it's me haha.  But yeah, it'll be finished and released.

Shawn covered my own inferences about Scott's involvement.  I do know that he was not only very sick, but had a very big personal/family issue during development too.  The comments section on Kickstarter for it is a wasteland, there's some really nasty people over there who are just bitter and angry and taking it out there.  The game will be released someday, people will either like it or not, and maybe those people will bitch to each other in a circle jerk for a little bit, but then it will be done and this will all fade into obscurity.  Such is the nature of some such projects.

Hah, if you wanna go gold school and back to parser, which you don't but I'm gonna mention it anyway, there's always Maddog Williams, which was made by a bunch of cool dudes back in the day - they pitched it to Sierra, but Sierra passed and they released it on their own.  You can download it for free on their website.

Paradise Lost is a book written by John Milton,  in 1667.  It's an epic poem about, well, you know the story of the fall of Man.

I'm sorry about all this man.  I hope you're doing okay.  It's pretty crazy out there, my friend had to evac his home this morning.

Quest for Infamy / Re: Bt (Steve's) Kidney Failure
« on: November 04, 2018, 10:37:00 AM »
Exactly.  People often suggest things as you do, but the fact is you cannot revive necrotic tissue, especially through anything dietary.  The renal diet is also something very specific, I work with a dietician and nutritionist at my dialysis center to have a diet that provides me what I needs and limits the things that I cannot process (Phosphorus, Potassium, etc.).

I have also currently lost 30 lbs since I went into the hosptial, and prior to that I lost 50 lbs as well. 


Thanks for your concern.

Quest for Infamy / Re: Bt (Steve's) Kidney Failure

Honestly, everyone here has been so supportive.  For years.  Just the conversations we've had, the folks who've played the games I've worked on and liked them...  this stuff all adds to the mix that makes me want to keep on living. 

I've honestly had a lot of medical problems and struggle, but I've also done some amazing things that put me in touch with amazing people all over the world, and that is a life worth living.  Seriously, I have to count my blessings in the dark times - and how many people can claim friends from every inch of this globe?  How many people have been lucky enough to work on their dream and see it come to fruition and have people enjoy the entertainment they created?  I have.

I may not have working kidneys, but I've been given so much more than others ever have been.  So, just keep doing what you're doing - playing our games, talking about them, joking with me, sharing the things you like and enjoy.  I've been doing this as long as I've had kidney failure and I intend to so until I eventually pass on.

Quest for Infamy / Re: Bt (Steve's) Kidney Failure
« on: October 22, 2018, 08:37:45 AM »
It's not certain that whatever condition I have will kill the next transplant I might get; there's an 80% chance it will... but there's a 20% chance it won't.  However, with risks to that and to my wife's health, for my family's sake, it's better if I don't take a kidney from her.  If any complications were to befall her because of this, and our children were negatively impacted more than they already will be... this is what I make my considerations on.

I've been pretty tough for 15 years.  I will see how much longer I can go.  I am pretty stubborn.

Hey guys.

Well, I'm home after spending a week in the hospital.  I'll be back on dialysis on Monday, and doing that for the foreseeable future.  Sorry things have been slow around here.

« on: October 09, 2018, 08:53:25 AM »
I think the 1.2A version on Itch only has a couple minor fixes/changes compared to 1.1 - I don't actually KNOW because the changelog I had for it accidentally got deleted, as well as that particular source... so I have no exact idea the difference.  It's a sore spot for me!!
