I used to work at RadioShack so I got the LifeWise brand since I got a huge discount on items that were part of the RadioShack brand. Then when they went on clearance I bought another. They worked great.

I can't believe those SNES prices... Holy crap.

Anyway, how often do you guys clean the dust and how? (Can of air, feather duster, microfiber towel, etc.) It's a pain to have to take the games down to wipe them down every time. Not to mention the Lego models I have.


Old T-shirt dampened with some soapy water. I just wipe across an entire row at once. My shelves are really tight (from top of shelve to bottom), so stuff doesn't get dusty very often. Less room for it to sneak in ;)

my room has a REDICULOUS dust problem. I literally have to clean everything several times a day:cry: if anyone has a good cheap option, it would really help

As long as you have lots of electronics in your room unfortunately dust will continue to build up fast. I clean every week because there's just so much dust build-up unfortunately. =\

Do you live in an apartment or a house? If you live in a house, make sure you're changing out the central air filters on a regular basis. They're cheap and they help keep the dust in the house under control. You can also buy nice reusable ones that you can just spray off with a hose outside when they need cleaning.

If you live in an apartment, especially an older one, it might not be that easy. My old apartment complex had been around for a long time and I once looked into the air ducts with a light and there were huge mounds of dust. It was awful. It looked like I was obviously the only person who ever lived there and knew about using air filters since there wasn't one when I moved in.

I couldn't afford to have a company come in and clean the ducts because it was pretty expensive, so I just had to do the best I could with a shop vac and a bunch of vacuum hose extensions hooked together. I think I filled it about four times by the time I was finished. Still had dust because I couldn't get it all, but I think it helped some.

At my current house, I dust every two weeks and it really doesn't build up that bad, I could probably push it to every three weeks if I wanted to. I change the air filters every other month, use Swiffers on electronics, and I get everything else with the the hose + brush attachment on the vacuum. The vacuum cleaner makes a huge difference because it's not just pushing the dust around. The only reason I use the Swiffers on electronics is because I don't want to create any static and ruin them.

Depends where in the world/country you live too, filter swap or no.

I dust MAYBE once a month in the winter, and about every 2-3 weeks in the (way too short) warm season.



Though I prolly should dust more often with my terrible allergies...

Well Wiggy, seeing all of your custom covers for so long has inspired me and I've decided to try my hand at making some for my Genesis games. Gonna pick up some UGC's down the road but I felt like messing around with photoshop tonight and tried my hand at this.

As epic as the original Musha art is, I just won a copy of the game cart only last night and figured that would be a good starting point. The one thing that always bugged me was the lack of uniformity in the Genesis covers with so many variants. I always was quite fond of the original black gridline design and decided to try and make a Musha cover on that.

It is not finished at the moment still gotta do the back but figured I'd give a quick look and see if anyone likes what I came up with so far.

They don't usually, as they have learned to use the doggy door but they have an attitude (Yorkie and little Daschund). Whenever I leave they get mad and pee on certain objects because its like they're mad I left(its like im not supposed to lol).

But when I'm actually here, they're good and use the doggy door and no pee anywhere lol

Decided to go ahead and finish it up. Heres the final product. I'm quite happy with it. If I have the time and make a few more I may start posting over on thecoverproject. I'll have to get my hands on some decent paper and start printing these off.

Recently moved into new house so took pictures of all my games and systems. I have 2 links. First is the original in order but are sideways for some reason. Second was fixed by someone but not in order. Not pictured is my Microsft X Box 360 racing wheel(like this one http://imageshack.us...00047c.jpg/sr=1).

Very nice man.

I haven't seen any good boxed (actual boxes, not the generic ones) GB collections in ages... I know there were at least few people who had pretty decent sized boxed GB collections, but I can't remember who they were (Orange was one of them). I think up to ~200 GB/C/A I think...

Gotta say this is rather fun. Most time consuming part is finding the logos/cutting the logos out/or vectorizing the logos. Felt like printing out two on what I had and they look so nice in a case. Pretty sure I am going to slowly box up my entire Genesis collection. I'll probably have to switch to UGC's though, for now I'm just using spare Genesis cases and I don't know if I can track down a bunch of them extremely cheap.

Thank you, I scooted them back the picture was from a little while ago. Doesn't have the most recent addition Assassins creed statue and Marcus and Mr. Payne are next to the game systems.

The caption should be "Come at me Bro" (Sibling rivalry).
