    Sega CD problems

It is an easy fix on both models as long as you have minimal soldering experience. Instructions for locating and replacing the...

    Tales From the Thrift!

    There's a Goodwill nearby that use to be a goldmine for games. NES, Genesis, SNES systems for 5-8 bucks, most carts were 2-5 bucks. I once even found a complete Phantasy Star for $4.99. However, lately they've been lame. Earlier this week they had a NES (regular, not top loader), rf switch...

    Thinking of buying first dog - Any advice?

    Definitely adopt if you can. If however you do want a puppy, find a reputable breeder. As mentioned before, pure bred dogs do tend to have more health problems, but a good breeder will know how to avoid them. I've owned an Akita and curreently have a pure siberian husky and a husky/malamute...

    Bought Two 2005 Mustangs This Weekend

    I would have mentioned the Aztec, but somehow my mind must have aborted the memories that contain all images of that vehicle. It's like a failsafe to protect my delicate brain. I'll agree that the new Maxima is pretty ugly to. Maybe if they removed the mohawk we can upgrade it from "Jesus...

    Bought Two 2005 Mustangs This Weekend

    I think the big question here is "What do you really want in a car?" Having some info on what you want to use it for would help a lot. As for me, I'm a fan of used cars because of the massive savings. I've got a '68 Mercedes 250SE, '84 Alfa Romeo GTV6, and a '79 Ferrari 308. I also used to...

    Why do you yell at CSRs?

    I used to work CSR at a cell phone company. I'd say that 8 out of ten calls started out with the customer being hostile. The big problem I saw with the call center was how it was managed. It was almost designed specifically to piss customers off. 1. Opening script. Better say it correctly...
