I've never heard of that before, that's quite bizarre. It just naturally fell out of place? Whats supposed to hold it up that failed?

each lung has an outer lining around it, my left one had filled up with fluid pushing my lung to collapse. You can read all about it... there are priamary and secondary spontaneous penumo's, primary occurring in folks with no history of lung disease as in my case. I know wikipedia isn't really the best source, but basically "Spontaneous pneumothoraces are divided into two types: primary, which occurs in the absence of known lung disease, and secondary, which occurs in someone with underlying lung disease. The exact cause of primary spontaneous pneumothorax is unknown, but established risk factors include male sex, smoking, and a family history of pneumothorax"

No male sex or family history of this (not sure how gay sex could cause a collapsed lung...?), and I quit smoking years ago. It's somewhat possible that my lung developed the hole in it while repairing the damage from my former smoking, but nobody really knows.

Posting to see what the interest is for a shmup meet this Saturday at my place. I don't intend to throw anything large, but if demand is frothing, I can adjust.

I saw Jazz comment on the Atariage page in regards to a meetup Saturday that he's got something happening with the wife, so I dunno if he'll be available...

As for me, my friend is having his 30th birthday party that day, so I'm gonna be busy at his place. Maybe next time!

Yup, I won't be available to partcipate in any gatherings shooting, Atari, or otherwise this Saturday…

I am however looking forward to gathering soon enough if one of the next two weekends is good for anyone?

If everyone else is going with the 26th, I'll just go then. My demand for shmups isn't frothing enough to go to 3 meets in a 4-week span.

At the small bar in the front, for the most part.

Normal people realize their phone needs recharging because they didn't get any texts or calls all day. I find out through a video game forum.

And apparently I dragged my feet too long on this bus thing. Only weird ass times are now available on Friday for Toledo to Chicago. I might just do Saturday and Sunday, then.

Whoah, been a while since I posted in here.

Had a good time at the meet, just wish I had a copy of MvC3 so I'd been in shape to throw down with you guys. People seemed to dig MMP, and I hit stage 4 twice in a row on Ketsui after not really playing any STGs in several months, so I'd call it a success.

Question for Ayanami: Where did you get that nice little stand you were using for the CRTs?

Generic CRT question: Finally got the PVM set up again, and I'm still having issues with the color when it's rotated (and it's been stored rotated since I got it from Jazz last year). I have a set of unshielded speakers I've been using with it, and when I set one on the left side at just the right angle I can mostly fix the colors...just wondering if anyone in the area has any idea of a better solution or experience dealing with this sort of thing...yes it's been degaussed repeatedly.

Also kind of curious if anyone nearby has experience getting custom art on SF4 SEs, I'm real sick of looking at this ugly SF4 art and want to throw together some Batrider related ideas. Not sure I trust myself to physically put it all together, possibly dye the plastic, and make it look nice.

But yeah, damn, long post. Had a good time at the meet, it was cool seeing you guys again. Looking forward to the next one I can make it to :)

My friend just came back from a 3 month trip to Japan yesterday, and brought with him a Saturn for me :D There's a price tag on it for 980yen! Console is white, came with two matching controllers. I tested it with an audio cd and everything is working fine so far, now to get some games!

I was devastated from seeing this thread drop all the way to the second page, but other than that, great!

Playing too much Magic: the Gathering though. I thought I kicked that habit 15 years ago. Damn that Duels of the Planeswalkers game for getting hooked again.

I'm caught in a timewarp that has dropped me off in the year of 1982! I've been playing pretty much only Atari 5200, Colecovision, and Vectrex… I'm about to get an Arcadia 2001 this weekend :o
I'll play the occasional NES or SMS but I've pretty much just stuck with the 1982 consoles… just need an Adventurevision to round out the collection - lol good luck on that!

Soooo, since it seems like we don't really have anyone to host, are any of you interested in a Pinball Pete's gathering or something, sometime in the near future?

Might as well reply here as well. I'm busy this coming weekend but unless I'm forgetting something the following one is open.

Worth mentioning that Pete's recently got a nice new MVS, very clean with a fantastic screen. It's a 4 slot but so far only has Metal Slug X in it. I haven't been able to catch anyone in charge the last few times I was there, but I'm going to ask real nice if they can at least throw Aero Fighters 2 in it when I have the chance. As it stands the old cab with that, Garou, Samsho4 and...whatever the puzzle game was is collecting dust in the back hallway by the bathrooms.

I'm fairly temped to try and snag a copy of OverTop to have put in there, I've been dying to play that game.

Normally I'm the least busy person ever, but I have some nerd stuff lined up on a few Saturdays this month:

Oct 1: MtG tournament during the day, shouldn't interfere if we do something later, although this is in two days so it's probably off the table anyway.
Oct 15: Possibly getting my ska/reggae/soul fix in Ann Arbor, but being that I'm only interested in two of the five bands playing, I wouldn't lose any sleep if I missed it.
Oct 29: Possibly going to Day of .Net in Ann Arbor (lasts like 9-5), possibly going to Cleveland instead, need to check with the family.

Other than that, I think I'm totally open.

Looks like it's going to be Oct. 8th, after 5pm. Everyone's meeting in Ann Arbor at Pinball Pete's.

Pretty much everyone has confirmed they can make it :)

Davey, you need to get on Facebook.

Well, It was great pleasure to see everyone again after so long!

Maybe folks would like to come by at the end of this month? (Davey, if you're in AA, we could host that evening of the 29th…)
what would folks like to play, so I may dig it out and have ready… I've only have ancient stuff on hand as that is really all that has held my interest this year, so I am sorry that I didn't have much to play this past weekend… :oops: I know older games may be difficult to get into and its a taste that is aquiried…

Ok, I'll stay tuned. I'll definitely be in AA that day, not Cleveland.
