I now own 3 working NES systems. If anyone in the detroit area wants one for like $10 bucks, I'll sell them one at cost. I only need one.

It's missing adapters, video cables, and controllers, but the decks have A/V jacks (no dongles needed) and the power needed can be supplied by an adapter at radio shack.
Controllers are easy to find.

Learning Experience

So I learned that Mountain Dew mixed with Green Apple Puckers kicks ass.
I also learned why you don't drink without drinking other things at the same time (preferably water).
Ugh. I feel like I was hit by a truck, and then it backed over my head a few times for good measure.

The network is growing
