Notes while moving
August 01, 2007

Yesterday was my wife's last day at her job, so today our packing went into full swing. She'd started packing before then--mostly my games--but today things finally began in earnest.

I've spent most of the afternoon and now the evening packing up my game systems. There are quite a few of them, and plenty of accessories. Systems go in their boxes when available--basically back to the Dreamcast--and will just be handled the best I can when there's no dedicated box (mostly older Nintendo systems).

As I was packing, I noticed that my Dreamcast looks like it's been through a war. I've kept a lot of systems I don't often play under the table where my computers are, so that I can easily hook them up to a capture card and grab screenshots for the site (if only I had done so more often). The Dreamcast is turning a sickly yellowish color and has dust bunnies caked to it all over. It's odd, because no liquid has been spilled there or anything. Dust and the Dreamcast just don't get along.

When our move is complete, I should have an 'office' for my game systems and computers and such. Hopefully, I'll be able to take better care of them then. I'd hate for my systems to stop working through neglect. I don't have more than about 20 Dreamcast games, but it would suck if suddenly I couldn't play them and it had been preventable...

Also: remember 1991?

Is it like "cat pee" palish yellow stain? As if the Dreamcast hasn't been ratted on enough...

And that TMNT is quite fitting with Comi-con just several days over. Geez, that brings back the NES days.

That Archie label brings back memories of those awful Sonic comic books, the ones with all the furry drama.

I remember 1991 as the year I was born in...

1991 certainly was a corny year for stuff like that, including games. Remember all those games that were just Bible trivia? Or that one dirty Tetris game? Geez. It was almost as bad as '84, when they made "Gremlins" games. That year was awful. AWFUL!!!
