    Hah, I love how you drew me in that comic. Baloo the Bear with Godot's mask. Think you can make an avatar of that for me?

    Nice comic BTW.

    And why am I unlucky for having one? You make it sound like it's a fucking Ouija board.

    Give him a fucking break. He doesn't have to like what you like, and you sure as fuck don't have to like what he likes. That's the whole thing about being an individual person. You see, that's how things should work. He liked it, he had the money, he bought it, he's happy, and who gives a shit about what you think?

    I think it's nice that you bought an old Tandy computer. If I ever do get an old computer, I'll probably play some of the old DOS games I liked as a kid, such as Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure.

    haha. You sound like a 6th grade guidance councilor.

    I prefer to sound like the 6th grader myself.

    Much simpler.

    BTW Baloo, that looks pretty cool to me.
    I've been wanting to get a TI-99/4A myself for a while now.

    My very own Tandy Computer, complete with software, monitor, keyboard, and a shitload of software.
    Yay!

    This is what defines coolness! I wanted one of these babies as long as I can remember!

    Whoa, that's pricey.


    Since when is $75 plus shipping pricey? That's practically nothing.

    I just spent 80 plus shipping on a hand numbered box set of my favorite band.

    You buy what you want, and you'll spend as much as you will let yourself for something cool.


    I saw your comment, and congrats on it working, good to know you didn't get screwed. Ebay burns the best of us sometimes.

    That computer looks really kool. You can always play oldskool games on it and write stories or store data on it. I had something similar to that when I was younger. Good find!

    Yeah, I'm looking for some games for it on eBay now, just ordered Ducktales: The Quest for Gold for it.

    And I don't think I've ever been screwed on eBay before. I've gotten ripped off on Amazon before though.

    it happens on ebay. one time i ordered this thing, but the guy sending it out took 2 months to send it out. I kept PM-ing her but would never respond. then i tried out the Paypal Report feature then she sent it out. of course i ave her a bad review, but a Neutral score. Apparently she'll only respond to you when she gets a Negative score, and only then she'll only leave feedback and blame you for that and give you a negative back.

    Heh, that's why I love eBay for getting rid of being able to give negative/neutral feedback to buyers.

    its kinda unfair though. There are a lot of bad buyers out there. But then I always ask for a tracking number so that i can send it to the buyer, and throw in a visible disclaimer if it breaks during shipping
