What a great time to be a Nintendo/Mario fan! I'm showing this to my niece and nephew later today. They're gonna freakin' lose it especially my 6yr old nephew, he's a hardcore Mario fan/gamer. He loves to play all of the Super Mario Bros games from the original on the NES all the way to the modern Mario games on his Switch. I don't know if any other kid or adult for that matter can outmatch him in his love for this mascot or company. :lol:

I bought this treasure last month on eBay. Never owned one, never played on one growing up. I went from my sister's SNES to my Gamecube/Gameboy Advance. Maybe it's the topsy turvy-ness of 2020, but I had this urge to buy this. My original intention was to get a Gamecube again (which I still plan to do possibly as early as this Friday). There was just something about not having this console growing up in my childhood that made me want to get it and a select back catalog of games for it. :happy:

I'm inhaling some extremely ignorant, self-centered anecdotal content in this thread :rolleyes:
Agreed, very much so....I guess we should just go on with life as normally so the virus can spread much more rapidly since we now know it can be simply by just breathing and talking near someone whos infected or someone who is asymptomatic showing zero signs of symptoms yet still spreading the virus. If we had of been proactive in doing these measures back in February, if not late January we would likely be on the cusp of recovery from this virus. Its not like this magically popped up in the US a month ago and nowhere else. We saw and heard the grim developments that were occurring in China, Spain, Italy, etc. weeks/months ago we collectively as a country should have been proactive and preparing then, not a few weeks ago as crap hit the fan. End rant.  Edit: Lets try to be sympathetic to people in other countries around the world who are also suffering economically, its not just Americans who are suffering from this. We all live on this planet and as a result we all are greatly and personally affected by this global pandemic.

Wow, Im shocked and saddened to hear about this news. Although I didnt know Charles personally, he was definitely a great inspiration in me wanting to do STAR emulations and graphic design in general. I learned a great deal of knowledge from watching his YT videos over the past several years. He will be greatly missed.😔

Programming and Graphics / Re: TWC New Graphics
« on: August 22, 2019, 07:49:37 PM »
Judging from the screenshots/video, I think the graphics look great, but of course they're not anything outstanding, it's pretty mainstream compared to other cable networks which is perfectly fine. I've always been a  fan of simple and modern. I was always a fan of the graphics they have had the past 6 years, although I've always felt like I was in the minority on that then, possibly even now. The sidebar was a good addition if you had a local HD feed, not the HD national feed when it came to the information it displayed. In hindsight looking back from 2008-2013 era of TWC's HD graphics they ranged from OK to bad imo. 2008-2009 is where I thought they were ok, but 2010-2013 is where they seemed to be all over the place, they seemed inconsistent in staying with any graphical style for more than a year if that. If you need more proof just look how Your Weather Today evolved from 2009-2014 during the Abrams & Bettes era. There were so many graphical overhauls on that show alone I could barely keep up. :wacko: I don't even want to get started on the WS4000 inspired LDL, specifically the unnecessarily humongous version that ate up 1/3 of the entire screen. <_<

I lurk around, but haven't posted here since last year? Don't remember. I haven't watched any TWC live coverage since I think Hurricane Irma two years ago. Whatever hurricane Mike Bettes was in Naples, FL that was the last time I saw TWC live from a livestream on Youtube. It will be five years this November since I've watched TWC on a daily basis or had cable. Any tv watching I do now I do it on Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, and Netflix. I had a change of heart and reuploaded my TWC fan art (STAR emulations)back on Youtube, but I'm not reuploading the recorded LFs with a couple exceptions. I would donate them all here if that was ok. In between working a warehouse job I'm focused on rebooting my gaming Youtube Channel by the beginning of the new year. I'm saving up to get a new and better PC or iMac. The one I have now just can't handle video editing/rendering well.

Hurricane Central / Major Hurricane Michael Upgraded
« on: April 19, 2019, 07:26:26 PM »
Michael was upgraded from a Category Four to a Category Five hurricane today by the NHC post analysis. The last category five hurricane to strike the US was Andrew back in August 1992.

Historical records Michael broke....
-Latest Category 5 hurricane to hit the US.
-4th strongest hurricane to hit the US, trailing only behind the Labor Day 1935 hurricane, Camille (1969), and Andrew (1992).
-3rd hurricane to hit Florida as a Category Five.
