So I'm sitting here watching a video of someone playing Friday the 13th for the SNES. I remember it as being one of the most annoying things ever, where the basic principals of left and right didn't apply. It boggles my mind that, for whatever reason, I consented to selling the very first Final Fantasy while holding on to this piece of junk. I'm also ashamed to admit that over a decade later, I still jump whenever you run into Jason while searching through one of the houses. What the hell, self? He's got crazy hair and he's wearing a purple track suit. Sheesh.

While I'm on the subject of oooold games, can anyone recommend a good emulator for the computer? If I go looking on my own a usually stumble across A) crappy ones B) websites that like to give me viruses or C) all of the above. I'd really, REALLY like to find a downloadable version of Maniac Mansion as well. Does anyone remember that game? It was awesome.

Don't feel bad - I've thrown Super Metroid at the back of the closet and can't find it, and yet I made sure the SeaQuest DSV game is easily accessable. I don't even like the show!

ZSNES is an awesome tool. And if you're interested in emulation, check out what a mate of mine is making: http://durandal666.blogspot.com/ . Basically, it's a portable suitcase arcade machine that plays any concole from 1995 back to the year dot :D

(And surprise! I'm still alive! Er, how are you? :P)

OMG that contraption-to-be looks so badass. I wants one! And good on your buddy for having the ability to even make something like that. I wish I was that talented :( The other day I googled "how to build a proton pack" and got back a shockingly detailed blue print. Complex math + blonde = brain explosion.

And I'm good, thanks for asking. How are you! :D I keep expecting to see Hank and Dean Venture in the eyes of your icon. Silly me
