Crazy shit, as if there hasn’t been enough to deal with. Good luck dude.

If we ever relax the suppression levels back to "mitigation" policies, we go right back to 2 million people dead within three months.

This continues until there is a disseminated vaccine, currently 18 months from now.

Itís a really cool old place, but we had the inspection yesterday and it came back with some significant issues. Weíre going to go back to the sellers and see about getting some of it taken care of, but if they donít make some concessions, we might be walking away. Pretty bummed at the moment.

I use a Raspberry Pi for my MAME gaming. This looks amazing, I like playing with a joypad. Are you setting up a full cabinet and all?

Sorry just saw this. Not a full cab, no. I put Ubuntu and MAME on my wife's 10 year old 27 inch iMac, and have that and the x-arcade on a cabinet height table with a couple of stools. It worked out great.

Congrats dude! Owning an old property is quite an adventure and a lot of fun. It'll make a man out of anyone. Being surrounding by that much history always excites me.

Not exactly what this thread is intended for, but I just paid off my student loans this morning. To say I’m on cloud 9 would be an understatement

I'd be more excited about that than anything I could purchase.

Unless I get a gigantic pay increase, I'll more than likely never pay mine off.
