    Challenge coins

    The big question/concern I would have is legal - I don't presume any of these designs are licensed are they? Some of these properties are owned by big companies with lawyers who may object on various grounds. At the very least, the project might get killed, or it may get all caught up in red...

    Do you have any grey poupon?

    Yeah, it's a bit hard in the past, but these days even Wikipedia has references to it. It is from what I've been able to figure out, very fancy Dijon mustard. I've not been able to find any at my local supermarket, but it's not exactly an upscale...

    CIC 9/11 Update (September 11, 2021)

    It's hard to be introspective given all that's happened these past few years. I'm not an American, but I still remember the day. And yes, it makes me feel old to think that 9/11 happened 20 years ago and I was a young'un just starting my first Real Job(tm). While I don't wish a 9/11 to happen...

    CIC Gets a Big Server Upgrade (August 22, 2021)

    Wow, that really is some long in the tooth hardware well beyond its expiry date. The upgrade was much needed to more modern equipment. I'm surprised the old server lasted that long.

    Sega CD / Mega CD Emulating and Controlling

    For controllers, there are plenty of options. You can get the official Mega Drive Mini/Genesis Mini USB controller - it's for the Mega Drive Mini or Genesis Mini retro console, but it's USB and works just fine on a PC. There are options for playing Sega CD/Mega CD games - there are Everdrive...

    Epic Find: 35mm Wing Commander (October 9, 2020)

    How many reels is it in total? What's it look like all the reels together? Surely you can't just leave it as a teaser photo!

    Halo fan makes 7 foot, 112 pound, UNSC Frigate from 25,000 Legos

    I keep getting excited when I read "Halo fan makes 7 foot..." then get disappointed when I read the rest of the title. I expected it to read "Halo fan makes 7 foot actual size Master Chief statue".

    Flight Simulator (as passenger)

    I think they need to add the airport experience as well. Including random TSA pat downs and lost luggage you have to claim at the end of the flight.

    E-bay forward needed USA => Austria

    Did you ask the seller? Austria isn't specifically excluded in the list of countries. Often in this case you have to message the seller and ask how much shipping would be. Usually works for me - Ive only run into the odd seller that doesn't want to ship outside the USA.

    Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Trailer

    No big surprise there. It's actually a decent movie on its own right. Which means as a videogame movie it's actually good. It's really a sleeper hit. It's a movie that defies the videogame movies are crap stereotype. Everyone just assumed it would be a crap movie, but it was a big hit with...

    Star Trek: Picard | Free Series Premiere Episode on Youtube

    I'm enjoying both Discovery and Picard. (Guess you can guess why from my nick). And yes, I enjoy The Orville as well. The Orville reminds me most about Roddenberry Trek, while Picard is more "traditional" post-Roddenberry along the lines of DS9. And Discovery well, intriguing. It helps that in...

    Flight Simulator (as passenger)

    But how do they simulate the cramped seating feeling? Or am I not allowed to play because my desk chair has more space than the real economy seat? Can you go to the bathroom and disturb everyone in your row? Does the seat in front recline on your legs? Kids bumping the back of your seat...

    Everspace 2

    The problem with Epic Games Store is it's incomplete. EGS does not have forums, so if you have a problem, well, if it's on Steam, then they get flooded with EGS support questions. I guess they will soon have a little tag that says if you own the game or not (call it an "anti-piracy" measure) so...

    Internet Archive

    Well, the legalities are a lot murkier because the Internet Archive is officially classified as a library, so they don't have to actually obtain EA's permission to host it. They do have to respect EA's copyright in that they can "lend" and let people play it (like you can borrow copyrighted...

    Hong Kong Controversy Ensnares WC Vet (October 13, 2019)

    Ugh, this thread will not end well. Pretty much every ToS or other agreement will have a broadly worded and nonspecific clause that's pretty much "Just because". It's used as a catch all rule in case there isn't something that addresses what the overlords want to happen. And yes, the only...

    NES Classic, SNES Classic, Playstation Classic . . . PC Classic?

    Yeah. The NES/SNES/PS Classic sell because you can't (legally) play those games without trying to acquire one of those old consoles and games. Which for some games and consoles can be difficult, or require a bit of work (e.g. console doesn't work and needs repair). These work because you pick it...

    Familiar Fighters Found (October 13, 2018)

    In general, you can bet it's used without license - the licensing fees for stuff like this is quite expensive, not just in the actual licensing, but in trying to get someone to sit down. And some like CBS require a $40,000 down payment before their licensing lawyers will even sit down with you...

    Prop ID: Maniac's Porno (September 2, 2018)

    So do people read Playpen for the articles as well?

    Three Weeks and Counting... (July 28, 2018)

    Yeah, the web version looks exactly like the app, except in a browser window. I think the only feature the web version is missing is system-wide push-to-talk (voice chat). I think if you do launch the invite with the app installed it will launch the app directly, but if you don't, you can just...

    Three Weeks and Counting... (July 28, 2018)

    No need to install the app - just use your web browser (click the invite link and you can log into your discord account or create a new account and get instantly on). App is handy, but if you're not wanting to keep an app running on your PC, the website is handy. I think the app is actually a...
