@Curator The server's clock is way off. I'm having trouble logging in with 2FA.

Trailer and details revealed for the new #Intellivision "Amico" system. That's right, I said INTELLIVISION. Very excited about this! 👾🤩#retrogaming

The new Amico system was announced yesterday! I was stuck in the back of the room, so I couldn't get any good pix of the screen.

The system won't be out for two years! That's an eon in technology terms. Even fewer of us who still care will be alive by then.

Some specs:
Price: $150-$180
2D games only.
Aimed at families and non-gamers.
Games priced at $3-$8.
Bluetooth controllers.
Up to 8 people can play simultaneously.

This booth at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo has a bunch of Intellivisions set up demoing the new games you can buy for this pioneering 39-year-old system.

The second photo shows the names and screenshot from all of the new games. As you can see, there are 11 available right now! And they're only $50 each!

I went to the Portland Retro Gaming Expo yesterday. They had some of the old console games set up in faux living rooms!

If you're interested in the off-the-grid social network Scuttlebutt, there's a good essay here about it (from a few weeks ago):

staltz.com/early-days-in-the-m

It's by @staltz , the creator of the Manyverse app for Scuttlebutt, and is nicely honest about the major difficulties of using the network, as well as suggesting possible solutions.

when I first ran D&D, my grandmother, who had bought fully into the IT'S SATANISM hype, insisted on sitting and watching the first session

about an hour in, she threw her hands up and yelled 'THIS IS JUST MATH' and stormed off

I abandoned the fire we know as a couple of years ago. For business purposes, I need to revive my account. I made the following graphic as a pinned tweet to announce my return.

Today’s lesson: always check that top of your ink bottle is on properly otherwise it will spill inside your bag and all over your paper.
But it can be useful in giving you random splodges to work with...you might even get a half decent bird out of it!
Did make a hell of a mess though.

A quickie for day 2 of - “Tranquil”
Gotta go do some storyboards but, if I have time, I might also crank out some Dralloween pieces later tonight.

Here's kinda why I haven't been active lately. This assignment has taken a toll on me and GOD.... my hand is aching!! Had to do these two + 3 more and 6 sketches. I'm basically dead :lies_down: :lies_down:

Ok, I’m calling it! This is my first real-life finished oil painting. There are still things I’m tempted to fiddle with but I think it’s time to move on to my next attempt. Now that I have some actual confidence in my ability to handle oils, this should be a lot of fun 😃

When you're browsing on Firefox and you accident open in a new window instead of a new tab.

This is a bit of a rude awakening. I haven't done any serious drawing in almost 20 years. Even back then, I wasn't very good, but at least I wasn't BAD! Apparently, I've atrophied!

This is my first entry in the marathon. It came out really rough. Oh well. That's the whole point of Inktober. Practice every day, and you'll get better.

I haven't decided yet whether I'll participate in . I'm frightfully busy these days. Everybody else seems to know what the prompts are and where to get all the info. For the clueless (like me), the official website is:
inktober.com/

I swiped the official prompt list off of that site and I'm posting it here, so I can find it easily.
