Dawning of the Age of Apollo…

It is my sad duty to inform…that Pegusis…my faithful computer for the last seven [or so] years…has taken critically ill…and will no longer be joining us here, on the internet…

This has been on the horizon for probably six months, now…Having owned enough computers over the years…I very strongly suspect the RAM is experiencing a critical failure…The symptoms are always scatter shot…and the same things don’t stay broken, from one reboot to the next…

…Since it’s officially an old PC, now…I’m not going to patch it back up…It’s time for something…upgraded…

…Enter Apollo!…my first ever Dell…[Yes…I named it after a Greek god]…

I was a bit shocked to find out this thing only has two USB ports…and no DVD drive [Thankfully, I have an external one, but still]…

On the up side…it’s got a blazing fast Icore 7 [“I 7 Core”?] processor…16 Gigs of RAM…and a two terabyte hard drive…Don’t even ask me to explain the graphics card…It sounded impressive in name…seems to be working great…but I don’t honestly understand those things…I’m a lover, not a techie…

I went from an unreliable PC about two days ago…to copying all of my essential data…to transferring it over onto Apollo…To downloading and installing most of my essential and favorite software…to getting logged back into my essential online accounts…

…And now, here I am…

If it’s seemed like my activity has been down…that is why…And I still have a bunch of stuff to download and install…Most specifically, some Magix Music Maker stuff…as I’m currently missing a whole bunch of synthesizers…and I figure, I likely need to install a few older versions, and activate them with their license keys, in order to get those back…Grrrrrr!…

…At least a few gigs of downloading, there…

…I’m also hoping I can get one of my old graphics programs to install on this machine…It’s really good at compressing image sizes down…And I don’t like my current options that I’m finding…Gonna have to grab the external drive for that one.

It’s always a pain in the rear end, having to migrate to a new PC…

I love having a new PC…but it’s going to take a while to settle in.

…Didn’t expect to spend my days off dealing with this…

…But, I’ve got a kick ass machine, now…to match my blog!

I think I’ve got Rocco sounding like his old self again, also…with exception to the massive glut of corrective lexicon entries, which are now going to have to be listened for…and added in…

One other unexpected plus…is that my Logitech headset finally has a machine, that it can fully function with again…I figured ever hearing out of the headphones again, was a lost hope…though the mic has worked fine, all along.

I’m running into all sorts of nit picky things…and I’m trying not to let it get to me…just let it go, and flow with it…as “the new reality”…

…Pegusis [like all my previous computers I used daily], was set up and running just how I liked it…and how I still want it…

CNN Pundit Loses His Mind: ‘Bernie 2020 Died Today’…


Date: April 13, 2018

01) CNN Pundit Loses His Mind: ‘Bernie 2020 Died Today’


“CNN contributor Bakari Sellers, along with other moderate Democrats, outraged about a comment Bernie Sanders made at a packed MLK event.. but what exactly did Sanders say?”

This is what it’s come too…

…So many people wont even take the time to verify information.

…If somebody they like tells them something…they simply believe it, and move forward acting on such a belief.

We have these brazen liars cropping up, even on major media platforms…

…because there is a massive portion of the population…which refuses to educate and inform itself.

…Seemingly…they want this type of lazy, cultish indoctrination.

01) ‘Paedophile hunter’ evidence used to charge 150 suspects

“Evidence from so-called paedophile hunter groups was used to charge suspects at least 150 times last year, a BBC investigation has found.

A Freedom of Information request, sent to every police force in England and Wales, showed a seven-fold increase in the use of such evidence from 2015.

Twenty-nine of the forty-three forces approached (67%) provided data.

Despite this, the National Police Chiefs Council say the groups’ tactics present “significant risks”.”

Thanks to feinmann0, for this find.

It really makes you question the validity of “law enforcement” agencies, seeing information like this.

Sega Genesis Ultimate Portable Game Player…

01) AtGames Sega Genesis Ultimate Portable Game Player Impressions


“The Sega Genesis was my console of choice through my college years, so while I can’t say I “jumped at the chance” to buy AtGames’ Genesis Portable (since it’s been available for several years), I did finally pick one up once they dropped to $30. What follows is my completely uninformed impressions of the system, from a Sega fan that did absolutely no internet research before purchasing one. (Intentionally! Hey, it’s an experiment.) This is what a non-biased review looks like.

Buy one of these on Amazon! http://amzn.to/2lC2yos

I’ve been eyeballing this thing, at the local Family Dollar…wondering if it’s worth the $40…and thinking, I know I’ve already got a lot of the games on that thing…

…The ability to download and play ROMs is tempting, however.

They make an Atari, too!
